I'm not much of a beer drinker to begin with (I like hard liquor) but not all American beers are Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz !!!!!

The major brands are a joke... Bud, Miller, Coors, Pabst etc etc. Its the smaller/lesser known beer brands/breweries that you can't buy at your average liquor store or get at your average bar that are pretty darn good!!!!

I've seen this beer before on RS and have wanted to try it. I read an article not too long ago that said LFL sent them a C&D letter.

Article

I haven't tried too many European brews, but from what I have had, they are all very good. That's not to say that I don't enjoy the craft beers of the US. Some of them are quite tasty. Razz

Here's a bit of odd trivia for you all. When we were in Jamaica last year, we had a Guinness one night. We all noticed that it didn't have the same "taste" as a normal Guinness does. After inspecting the bottle we found out that there's a Guinness brewery in Jamaica and that all the Guinness on the island is brewed/bottled there.

Being in the Bev Can trade i can tell you that taste will DEFINATELY vary country to country which is due to the amout of Laquer sprayed inside the can to protect the contents from the bare metal exposure, here in UK we have a minimum/maximum amount, in other countries the shelf life is shorter (eg USA) so they hardly use any laquer therefor the taste will have more metal contamination Wink

UK spec = 8ma max for beer/lager, 5ma max for soft drinks/cider
USA spec 100ma for beer/lager, unknown for soft drinks/cider.

This only applies to canned drinks.

Yeh yeh more useless information i know Wink

What does that mean for bottles? The Guinness in Jamaica was all in bottles. Wink

We just chalked it up to the water they used to brew the beer.

"This only applies to canned drinks."

For bottles tastes i would say the storage/temperature conditions will play a major factor, also how long its actually been inside the container, plastic containers will actually leak into the liquid over time (applies to ALL plastic bottled drinks).

When I went to the Oshkosh air show I loved taking the piss out of the P-51D, my Dad's mate was telling me how great it was but lost his rag when I quizzed him on the Rolls Royce badge lol!

No... I'm not ignorant when it comes to war type stuff (I don't claim to be an expert though!).... I've been teaching US and World history for over 5 years now, so I know a little bit!!! My two specialties are overall military history and the US Civil War.

So the UK helped us design and modify the P-51!!! Every major manufacturer in the world stopped what they were doing in order to support the war effort. Companies through out the Allied Forces were contributing and working together to making supplies, weapons, munitions, etc. What's next.... you going to take full credit for the Manhattan Project also?

And how soon you forget were sending the UK, Soviet Union and the rest of the Western Allies supplies while we were still militarily neutral.

And I'm pretty sure that if it weren't for the US, most of Europe would probably be speaking German and goose-stepping to the Konigratzer March (spelling?).

The only thing that dwarfs my Star Wars and Sports interest/collections is my interest and collection/contraband of WWII artifacts. I had several relatives who fought in WWII (2 never made it back) and brought a lot of cool stuff home with them.

I could argue and play devils advocate about this stuff all day!!!! A topic I know more about than vintage star wars toys that's for sure!!!!!

Correction, you were selling us them (and were still paying Wink)

Yes we could go on all night but we wont will we - the manhattan project btw - other countries were way ahead at the time but the war effort slowed them down Wink

And dont even think of claiming the space projects - captured German tech is all Wink

Ah i got a bite anyway haha
