A Pint of Bitter

Green Flash has done yet another simple miracle - made an English-style bitter something I might drink more frequently (if they tasted like this). Hop Head Red, available in six-packs, is a delightful addition to their already formidable list of yummy brews. Good malts, to give it a depth of flavor otherwise lacking in English beers. Pretty big hop load gives a nice bitterness without going for the full dark IPA thing that Arrogant Bastard does. Beautiful color, dark red with tinges of brown.

Sorry to have kept you waiting... (Foul Language Ahead)

But this one's worth it: Fucking Hell Beer.

Roughly translated, there is a new beer that someone is attempting to trademark with the above name. They refer to "Hell" as a style of beer, and "Fucking" is a town in Austria. There was some concern that other countries might find the name offensive, but that isn't enough to stop the trademark.
