    If you can't even do that, you have no right to even LOOK at a maple leaf. 4 cases and a moose is enough to get your foot in the door. If you want the all access super Canadian free healthcare and stuff citizenship you have to pick 2 of 3 things to do

    -Burn down the White House with only two cats and a road map for companionship.

    -Score at least 20 goals in a single season as a winger/center or accumulate 200 penalty minutes as a defencemen. No goalies. We have enough.

    -Start a cover band featuring The Hip, Rush, and April Wine cover songs. Get air play in at least three foreign countries of which only ONE may be an Enlish speaking nation.

    Good luck amigo! Hope to see you soon!

    Ever had proper beer? Come to Germany, or try a real ale. Then we'll talk. Incidentally, I have a good friend who used to work for John Smith's. She could tell you some horror stories.

    There is just so much wrong with that statement.

    I know we're kidding around here but "best beer" is serious business; even their Extra Smooth is not a serious contender. If we confine ourselves to just that type there's HSB, Bathams Best Bitter, Ten Fifty, Butcombe Bitter, Jeffrey Hudson Bitter... and that's sticking to British brews only.

    amazon, german beer's lager is it not certainley i've never heard of a german bitter other than the obvious "please/thankyou" and as for john smiths being orrible thats just the tins. you have to drink it from a pump in a working man's social in yorkshire preferably in the seventies or eighties.

    in coclusion beer makes a nation great at conflicts more so than wine or spirits, unfortunately it also makes ya stupid. one irrefutable fact, giving all that useless desert back to the arabs then finding all that oil under it.hic, hic cheers n god bless her majesty the queen..

    *pfffptpth* That's rather hair-splitting. And you ignored the real ale suggestion.... Anyway, what the Germans manage to do under the restrictions they've made for themselves (German beer, and that ain't the half of it) is alright by me, lager or no.

    In my former life as a chef in a Mexican restaurant, I had ample opportunity to sample the contents of our ample tequila bar. Just like any spirit, there is cheap, mass-produced stuff and there's the good stuff. You'll be wanting the expensive anejo or extra anejo gear that's been aged in oak casks for several years. Smoother, mellower and tastier than the slammer-fodder (white and even gold) most people are used to and stuff to drink with a good cigar. Think quality brandy or single malt

    Am currently partaking in a glass of AnCnoc. Whiskey and beer are my first loves....

    Given you think that John Smith's is the badger's nadgers any assessment you give is put into the right perspective

    I am amused. As much by the names of their other beers as with the story. I wonder what it tastes like? The only time I heard of someone making a super-strong beer, it was apparently disgusting.

    Good point. The British navy was considered one of the greatest navies in the world and they had RUM rations.

    This argument keeps getting shot full of holes.

    Default the navy emmmm

    having thought long and hard about your last post ebon about 5 minutes while i was busy on the gary glitter i came up with two reas-excuses that may explaine rum, the space on a ship of the line at that time was i would say at a premium so vast hogs heads of beer wouldnt have been viable so next best thing rum . have you taken into consideration the way the navy recruited some of its volunteers, shanghai'd (the queens shilling) usually found in the bottom of a beer tankard which suggests to me that the majority of sailors were in fact beer drinking piss-eds who didnt use glass bottomed tankards and that all the best recruits of the time could be found in ale houses(not rum houses)

    p.s.i think they used rum as a medicine too but dont quote me on that
