Guiness vs. Murphy’s Beers in Ireland

I was told by a man who lived in Dublin for a few years that Guinness tastes different in Ireland, since it’s not pasturized.  So while in Cove we ducked into a small pub to order a Guinness.  But we noticed the locals were drinking Murphy’s, so decided to try both.  In our group, 4 liked Guiness better than Murphy’s, but I liked Murphy’s better.  Why?  I think for the same reason I like ice water over flavored water – Guinness had a flavor too it, whereas Murphy’s seemed cleaner.  I loved the pub we were in – 4 men stood at a tiny pub mid-afternoon on a Tuesday drinking Murphy’s ales, much like I’d imagine in a small Irish pub.  And the proprietor/keeper was friendly, but not genuine.
