    A pint.. it's about 0,4 l I think. Well here's what we are paying in Finland:

    Larger 2:40
    Cider 2:50

    In Sweden (I have just moved here) it's a little more expensive.

    Not 100% sure, as I don't go into pubs much, but around 2.00 a pint.

    I did a short stint as a barmaid a couple of summers ago, and the prices then were..

    Steinbock - 2.00
    Hurlimann's - 2.22
    Strongbow - 2.10
    Masterbrew - 1.40
    Masterbrew Smooth - 1.70
    Guinness - 2.20 (or around there - never served enough of them to remember!!!)

    VK Vodka Kick - 2.20
    Vodka Source - 1.80
    and Becks - 2.20

    And i'm still disgusted they didn't serve Guiness! A pint of bitter round here is about 2.00 for the good stuff (John Smiths). I don't really like lager so have no idea. Oh but it's 70p a pint in the Student's Union.

    How many ml in a pint? The size of beer glasses differs from state to state in Australia, but I generally order what in NSW is called a Schooner which is 385ml (I think). The other night I was drinking stout (Guinness) @ AUD $3.90 (approx USD $2). Local draught beer is approx AUD $3.00 or (approx USD $1.50).

    We have just introduced a VAT style sales tax here in Australia and the overall tax on draugh beer went up alot. So much that the government had to back-down and lower the tax on beer The electorate know the national priorities even if the government loses the plot

    Apparantly there is 568 ml in a pint.

    In VIC we have pot glasses (285ml or 10 fl.oz), and pints. Pints are about $5.50, pots are about $2.80. These are approximate prices, as I am not a regular drinker.

    Some pubs here also have schooners but I have no idea how much they are. They're more of a NSW thing.

    Did you know that American units are different to imperial units?

    An american pint is 0.8327 imperial pints.
    An american fluid ounce is 1.0408 imperial fl.oz

    I know what bitters are (at least I think I do), but it doesn't sound like you are referring to the same thing. Would you UK blokes care to enlighten us Yanks?

    "bitter" is reffering to bitter ale. A style of ale. Traditionally an ale is a bottom fermented beer (as opposed to, for example, a larger which is top fermented). Traditional ales, as you find in the UK tend to be medium to heavy in body and colour. Bitter ales are, well, more bitter in flavour. Australian beers although often called ale or bitter (such as Melbourne Bitter (Ale), Victoria Bitter (Ale), etc are really quite light compared to traditional UK ales (and are actually top fermented and filtered similar to the traditional lager technique).

    I must admit I am an ale man.

    I would tend to agree with Norfett. I am, as my friend Rebecca affectionately calls me, a "girl drink drunk". I have tried beers before and just cannot stand the taste. Even beers that are so called "honeyed" or "sweet" still taste disgusting.

    I wish I liked beer so that I could hang with the friends and drink beer, but I just can't stand it. Can someone help me please? For the LOVE OF GOD!



    But seriously, for me, it's got to be sweet or at least semi sweet. Wine-coolers, mixed drinks and "Alcho-pop" are the drinks for me. The reason why I asked about the bitters is the one of the most refreshing drinks I have ever tasted is made with bitters (the actual bitter stuff). I first had it in Sydney and it's called a "Lemon, Lime and bitters". It uses bittes to coat the inside of the glass, ice to to the top and then fill it with Lemonade (Sprite or 7-up for us Yanks).

    What a great drink!

    Ale? Lager? Ciders? Bitters?

    In the US beer is beer!!! Maybe 1 out of every 10 US beer drinker truly differentiates between ales, lagers, ciders, and bitters. But in all honesty, I don't think I've ever heard anyone say,"I'm going to have a nice cold mug of lager!".

    I consider myself to be an accomplished beer drinker, but I have no IDEA where my favorite beers fall on the official beer spectrum. The farthest I've gone to truly classify them is light and dark. hahaha I like light colored beers when it's warm and dark colored beers in the winter time. And then there is the beer you've only drank out of a bottle. So you really have no idea what it's true color is lol...

    From what i've heard, the UK/European selection of beers is way bigger than our traditional selection. You lucky Devils!!

    Well anyway, a pint of beer usually goes for about $2.50 US here in Washington DC.

    Light-colored Beers
    Ice House
    Heineken
    Molson Ice
    Bud Ice
    Rolling Rock
    Miller Genuine Draft
    Coors Lite
    Corona
    Samuel Adams

    Dark-colord beers
    Killians
    Bass
    Guiness
    Yuengling
    Becks
    Molson Golden
    Samuel Adams

    Beer I've only drank from a bottle
    Red Stripe
    Dos XX
    Grolsch


    These are some of the more popular mainstream beers in the US. Anybody care to classify them?

    Creole, what do you think of Australian beer?

    I find that American beer seems watery, and sweet.

    In Australia, largely, beer is beer, unless somebody orders a Guinness or something. When somebody says "beer" and they don't say "imported", it means the local ale (Carlton Draught, Victoria Bitter and Tooheys New are taking the state by storm). Cider isn't really thought of as a beer here, I'd say.

    Cider is fermented apples!

    MMJ, do you guys down in Victoria have anthing similar to Tooheys Old? It is a dark ale, black in colour like a Guinness but not as strong and thick and creamy. In fact its not even as strong as a stout. Gee it tastes just right to my pallate especially in the cooler months. Originally here it was called Hunter Old because it was made in Toohey's Hunter Valley brewery and enjoyed by the coal miners. Alas that brewery is gone now.

    Unfortunately Tooheys have bought out nearly all of the local pubs in the last year or so. All the taps run Tooheys. I have seen Tooheys Old, however it is not readily available.

    I am not a large beer drinker by any means. BC might have more info (although his pubs probably don't have Tooheys).

    Wow! They have Guiness in the US! I love Guiness, but tend not to drink it that much. For some reason it goes right to my head and I can't walk after 2 or 3

    Sure do. I love Guiness too. Definitely one of the strongest beers available in the US.

    Do you all have imports like Corona(mexico) and Red Stripe(Jamaica)?

    mmj...

    I actually didn't have ONE beer while I was in Sydney. Shame isn't it?

    Now Corona is one of the few beers that I actually like, BUT it's got to be ICE COLD and have a little sliver of lime in it.
