During the annual Friends of Ireland luncheon in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan offered a toast to the Irish.

Raising a pint of pre-poured Guinness, Ryan said, “To what our forefathers have started and our children will continue, may the light always shine upon them. Sláinte.”

While the sentiment was lovely, no doubt, it was the beer itself that had people buzzing. And not in a good way.

As Guinness enthusiasts know, a proper pour of Guinness should always be topped with a thick, creamy foam.

Ryan’s lackluster pint was definitely not up to par. The BBC even dubbed it “the worst pint of Guinness imaginable.”
