Actually I wouldn't count the fermented gnats piss that comes out of
certain US breweries as beer at all. I'm sure there's some fine
American beers; just as there are some hideous English beers.

The traditional view (at least over here) is that American beer is
mostly lager whereas traditional British beer is one form or another of
ale. Very different beers.

Of course none of this comes to close to proper (hard) cider, which
should be still, cloudy, strip the enamel from your teeth, claw down
your throat and sit uneasily in your stomach. And preferably have a
fearsome name like "Swamp Donkey" :)

Now I'm feeling thirsty!
