Ah yes, a schooner of New certainly doesn't go astray on a nice hot day. That's a fine example of a discerning palate, but Crown Lager? Please, not that! [Image: laff.gif][Image: beer2.gif]

 
Oh dear, a bunch of uneducated NSWelshmen. Come to where beer was made from beer.

I can't help noticing that some people actually talk about lager as a beer. It is, in most cases, not worthy of the name.
To drink most modern lagers voluntarily, is like chosing instant coffee over real coffee. There are decent exceptions like Staropramen and Sam Adams(to an extent), but these are only confirming the rule: Lager is generally not beer and it is made by and for people who do not like beer.
Just have a taste (heaven forbid) of a bottle of so-called "iced" lager and a man who knows his beer will immediately realize that lager is from the Devil and created in order to enhance and trigger the mass consumption (of people who preferred to drink other things) so big business can make more money. This happens at the expense of small and traditional brewers, occupied with refining and carrying on local  beer traditions.
 
When I was in London two weeks ago, we stopped at a market near The Clink Prison. There is an excellent beer store there (they only sell beer) and I asked the owner if he had a certain brand of Norwegian beer. At first he looked angrily at me, but when I had finished speaking, he took a relieved breath and said : "Thank God, because I thought at first that you were one of these silly idiots coming to a place like this to bother me with stupid questions like "do you have any Scandinavian lagers?" But we actually have the beer you asked for and my humble personal opinion is that that brewer  is one of the best brewers in the world. You should have senn the reactions at different international beer-festivals!"
Then we both went on, talking badly about idiot lager-drinkers and establishing the bond that ties lovers of real beer together.[Image: biggrin.gif][Image: beer2.gif]
 
So, whoever you might be out there, indulging in the unspeakable sin of uncritical lager drinking: Repent, repent! [Image: jabs.gif][Image: boxers.gif][Image: nono.gif] Make an act of contrition and happily buy your local traditional beer the next time you go out for one.[Image: amen2.gif]

Sounds like you had a real beer and not a lager! Way to go, friend!

Does your beer have a halo?  This ran in Saturday's paper:

Bud Light on occassion.  Turning 21 was not as eventful as I thought it would be, because it turns out that I like drinking other things than beer.  Only on occassion do I drink beer nowadays.  Is something... wrong with me? [Image: laff.gif]

Yeah mate,

I think part of the problem is that you aren’t drinking real beer. Avoid the mainstream American “beers” which are little more than yellow-colored, alcohol-fortified water.

BTW, when Varus and I were visiting Scotland two years ago, we were shocked (and ashamed) to discover that Budweiser was on offer in many places. We couldn’t believe that there would be an export market for such [insert scatological term here] pseudo-beer.

When I was in Ireland 12 years ago for eight months during university, plenty of the Irish and the continental students drank Bud.  Shocking, but true.
 
Good beer, real beer, does not usually fill the bill for university-age drinkers.  They want to get tipsy, if not outright blitzed, and Bud (or something like it) is immeasureably better for this task.

People without culture (or if from a country with good traditions, without knowledge and internalization of that culture) drink crappy beer. People from the Colonies (US) are generally excused since many have lost their heritagec due to commercialisation
Cultured people, on the other hand, prefer beer rooted in tradition.
Those young idiots you mentioned, Gladius, are poor victims of globalization. They get culturally poorer everyday. Basically, it give me the same taste in my mouth that I get from hearing Scandinavian rappers[Image: puke.gif][Image: hoppingmad.gif][Image: shrug.gif][Image: huh.gif]
