I'm planning a trip to Ireland over the summer, but am worried about what to drink in the pubs. I don't know that much about beer (I usually drink Miller Lite), so forgive me if my terminology isn't completely accurate.
I can't drink heavy stout or dark beers, so Guinness is out. I'll try it, of course, but I don't see myself drinking that all night at a pub. From what I've read, most of the beers over there are of the heavy or bitter variety. I don't want to have to drink Bud Light, as I'd rather try for some authenticity while there. Are there any beers that are a bit lighter in flavor that won't make me look like a wimpy tourist when I order it? Any ideas?
