1/2 pint Guinness Draught

From a chilled bottle, fill a clean pint glass just over halfway with Smithwick’s Ale.  Open a chilled can of Guinness Draught.  The head will rise.  Prepare to pour.  Place your Black & Tan spoon (regular spoon will also work) face down on the rim of the glass and slowly pour your newly opened Guinness Draught over it.  When the Guinness has risen to just proud of the rim, you’re ready to enjoy the distinct pleasures of The All-Irish Black & Tan.
