You missed the point, I didn't see any known beers that I like in
between those 400, that IS my personal opinion, and probably little
I like strong "toasted" beer, 8%+, and I love Grimbergen Optimo Bruno.
Ripped off, I had the privilege of being able to pay for my first
beer after forking £8.
I do have an official pint glass from Camra, 1996 Glasgow Festival,
this vintage item could be yours for say £6, next Lonix.
Why is it illegal to serve in any other measure? Because pubs took
the punters for a ride for a long, long time.
P.S.: If you have any issue with my opinions, I'm afraid it IS your
problem, consolate yourself thinking that it is not that bad that
the rest of the world doesn't think exactly like you.
