Malt vinegar.

What could be worse than drinking a less than stellar brand of American beer? How about drinking a 1986 Liebfraumilch from perhaps the same company?
Yikes! I'm not even going to waste the energy opening this one.

Would be interested to hear your thought on stellar american beers and which ones are, well, just pants!

Nice oxymoron on that label....'qualitatswein'. Yeah right. (Bet you aren't old enough to remember the great anti-freeze scandal!)

Mark....much to my surprise the Yanks make some outstanding brews...anything by Samuel Adams is pretty good.

all the classy birds drink that stuff down my neck of the woods, they love it with a bit of acidity.

Don't forget your roots Vinogirl.Kirklands Winebar in Liverpool used to sell Liebfraumilch(Ladieslovemilk?? in English!!) by the shedload.That and the other local fave, Niersteiner, were quaffed with gay abandon in the late 70's.Oh! and Schlitz too.Whatever happened to that cheeky little number? Oh! and Rocamar.Our palates have put some Vinomiles in since then my dear.

Mark: Had a quick look in the fridge. There are various bottles of Samuel Adams (Boston and Winter lagers), Anchor Steam (it is the SF Bay Area afterall), and a lone bottle of Negra Modelo...cos I love Mexican food.

Affer: 'Fraid I do remember the anti-freeze scandal in Austrian wine (still lived in England then). What's wrong with people that they can't take a little bit of glycol in their wine?

Thud: Yea, that 'Old Fezziwig' was a classic.

Monkey: You could probably educate them...if you ever bothered to post something on your wine blog!

Lord Roby: Just slightly before my time, didn't get to witness you and Thud whooping it up on Rocamar. I seem to remember Kirkland's did a good business in Sangria too. My mother did however keep me in a fair supply of Piesporter from the cellars of the Edenhurst Hotel.
