(Courier Mail)   After a beer truck spills its load on the street, people in the area help the driver collect his fallen goods. Just kidding. They run off with the beer in the name of souveniring. "The beer was off the street in about a minute"   (couriermail.com.au) divider line 54

Looks like they're just moving off the street for the guy. Not a lot of looting. In U S America, it would be carried off right past the rightful owners.

Semi-good stuff. Coopers make good beer but the colour of the can makes me think it is a mid-strength. Plus, it is in a can which always makes beer taste awful. Now, if it was bottles of coopers with a nice green label it'd be a very nice pale ale, red would be the sparkling then there is their stout (which I used to drink in winter after rugby training when I lived in Adelaide).

Monophtalmos: Remember: It is only looting if Heineken is involved.


I'm surprised nobody has claimed that since the cans were probably damaged and weren't going to be able to be sold anyway, that this was ok and really isn't stealing. People tend to come up with all types of rationalizations when Heineken isn't involved.

actually, beer in a can is likely to stay better preserved than beer in a bottle, since it suffers no damage from light.

filter: Heineken is the Budweiser of the Netherlands--- never understood the love there.


the budweiser of the netherlands is a lot better than the budweiser of the US.

also, stella is probably even lower brow than heineken. still better than budweiser.

on a final note, ever tried the budweiser beer that tries to be beer? I forgot what they were calling it and I haven't seen it in stores in a while. but, I had one once, and thought... well, it's not poison... though, it won't be joining my list of beers that I choose. 

/ and, if you wonder about the love in the US, you should wonder a helluva lot more about the love for budweiser in europe.

No, someone who doesn't like the taste of beer from a can talking about his preference.

THIS.

the glass is the important part.

and the glass must be freshly washed and still contain traces of moisture inside. Ideally it should be thin.

the british pint glass or the german hefeweizen glass are the best of breed in this regard. big thick glasses are no good.

Thick glasses are fine, but I agree on all other accounts. I do like sipping from a thin glass for some styles, but I've got a couple (thick) German dimple steins that are great drinking glasses.

It's been a while since I've tried it, but I thought Budweiser (as opposed to the ubiquitous Bud Light) still has some semblance of flavor to it.

If I had to guess, I'd assume the reasoning behind a thicker glass is to act as insulation. I'd like to hear the argument for thinner glass, however; that's not as obvious to me.

i can't offer a great explanation, but thin glass is better, in my opinion, for things with a delicate flavor or strong nose. something about the thin glass, it lets the fluid roll more smoothly over your tongue, more deliberately. that's why wine out of a thin glass is more enjoyable. it enters the palate better.

when it comes to beer, i think it depends on the beer. some beers are fancy like wines, others are not so much.

when the european company bought budweiser (or their parent company), they released a bud that only came in bottles, and i think it was called american lager or something. the marketed it as a boutique beer, charged $7 a six-pack. it was much better than regular bud, but I haven't seen it in a while. it wasn't better than other beers you could get for $7 a six-pack, so maybe that's why it disappeared.

Fair enough. I'm a fan of gastronomical correctness, and I believe aesthetics can play a role in the enjoyment of food or beverage.

For me, the thinner glass fills your lips less with glass, more with beer. Some beers offer more on the palate from the lips, but it could also be psychological.
