Yea, I don't know if I'm going to take advice from a guy that has a negative word to complain about a beer glass that is too full and a positive word for a pour that is all foam.

A pint poured all the way to the top with no head is wrong and gross. How do you walk from the bar back to the table without spilling (not to mention, you need a head for carbonation release and flavor).

How it should look. Relax, you paid for a half liter and you got a half liter.

And to the second point, I live in Czech and mlíko is a thing, but it's a gimmick even here. If microbreweries in the US are trying it, I could see them giving off strong beer snob vibes.

Beer is such a bloody precious nicety since these namby-pamby craft beer fanbois took over. It's enough to make you puke, listening to them.

.....yes, this year we're going for a Chateau de Pissoir motif, crowdfunded by armless Sowetan orphans with learning disabilities. With overtones of almond, sauerkraut and battery acid, "I'm a Gormless Wanker IPA" pairs best with bison offal, unemployment and a 78-year-old blind French spinster named Marguerite....

In the EU you have those handy lines on glassware to ensure you get a proper pour.  Here in the US they sell beer based on the total volume of the glass.  For example, a "pint" of beer comes in a 16oz glass that is filled 1" from the rim.  Because of the way volume of a cylinder works this comes out to a "pint" that is only 12oz of beer (there are supposed to be 16oz in a pint):

Unless you have a shady bar that serves in 14oz glasses shaped like a pint glass.

Note bars that just say "New Belgium Fat Tire $6" without a size indication
