Last time I got a Guiness it came in a can
What I want to know is why they tell you to serve it at 34o
You might lager at that temperature, bit it's been my observation that beer is a lot like cheese: you miss half the flavor if it's too cold

I don't check the temp of my beer, but I suspect mine tastes best a lot closer to 55o

I know it bugs people that I generally don't bother to refridgerate my beer.....

I've always wondered about this -- and I know I'm betraying my ignorance here, but you're all nice, tolerant folks.  Tongue 

I don't like dark beers, but I understand that people who do like them prefer to drink them at room temperature.  I love pale ales, lagers, and pilsners -- but only cold.

Is there some beer rule that I'm violating about lighter (colored) beers and temperature?

Not that I'll change how I drink them.  I like what I like.  I'm just curious.

Many people like dark beers at 'room' temperature, but fewer people feel that way about the paler beers.  I think it is because you can taste more of the flavor at the warmer temperature - but a beer like Budweiser simply doesn't have any flavor.....

You should also drink red wine at room temperature.....

Well, sure, but believe it or not, not all pale beers are Bud.  Some of them, especially the microbrews and imports and such, actually do have real flavor.  It's just not the same flavor as a stout.

I always figured it was related the the whole red wine/white wine thing (white wine is best served chilled, but red at room temp), but I'm not an expert on either beer or wine so I could be drawing a completely incorrect parallel here.

What Star said!

Budweiser doesn't count as beer, as far as I'm concerned.

I'll agree to that one, too.  Budweiser, no.  Various higher-class Pale Ales and wheat beers and so forth?  Yes.  Definitely beer, and in my experience best served chilled.  I can see where cold would dull the heavier notes of a dark beer and agree that room temp may be best for those, but cold seems to bring out the crisper flavors in things on the lighter end of the spectrum.  IMHO, anyway.

Yep.

My current favorite is Sam Adams Pale Ale.  But I'm also a fan of Pilsner Urquel, Peroni, Moretti, Stella Artois, various other Sams, Corona (what can I say, it's ubiquitous), a Thai beer that I can't remember the name of, and the locally-made Blonde Bombshell.

I drink exclusively dark beers, so that would be the difference

Is there some beer rule that I'm violating about lighter (colored) beers and temperature?
I doubt the beer cops are going to come looking for you no matter how you serve it.
It's all in how you like it.

Last time I looked, Guinness was a dark beer; and it says right on the bottle to serve it at 34o

Right.  And I'm with you there; I don't get that either.  I tend toward lighter beers (if that wasn't obvious...), but when I drink Guinness it's never cold.

I am fully aware that not all pale beers are bud - i even make pale beers on occassion.  And while I serve those cold, I still fell there is more flavor at room temperature.
