So is this right?

Roasted Barley= white head
Black Patent= tan head

How about chocolate, debittered black, etc?

I think dark grains = tan head

I use that Ode To Arthur which only has roasted barley for dark grains and its tan to light brown head.

I was wondering this myself. How does Guinness have such a white head on it?
PRIMARY: The prime directive
SECONDARY: My wife says it's her.

The most important thing to remember about drunks is that drunks are far more intelligent than non-drunks. They spend a lot of time talking in pubs, unlike workaholics who concentrate on their careers and ambitions, who never develop their higher spiritual values, who never explore the insides of their head like a drunk does.
