As a confirmed southener,I think it's a case of horses for courses.A northern beer such as Timothy Taylor Landlord is brewed to be served through a tight sparkler and IMHO tastes all the better for it.However there are some southern produced beers which can have a lot of character knocked out of them by using a tight sparkler.
I guess it's all part of the skill of a publican to get this right,depending on what he is serving at the bar .
