Blue moon is awful sh*te altogether.

Don't get me wrong. I love the Hatfield. It's a big part of the reason I dont have a degree. But it's never had the best pints.

Blue moon is piss, utter piss. Belgian style wheat beers wouldn't be my favourite style of beer anyway but this 'craft' beer from coors is just awful. And telling us to put fruit in the beer as a 'serving suggestion'? It already tastes like someone f**ked orange juice into a vedett white, you want us to make it flat too? Stick to bottling water from the rocky mountains and selling it as beer and convincing Brits that Carling is an English lager. Leave the real beer to the professionals
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

I know the family brave and well for years family friends, its my first stop for a pint when I'm home! 

I thought people were fans of blue moon! Bluemoon, Bud Light with Lime I'm not a big beer drinker mind you id rather have a class of Jack or Jim Bean. I recently had Jim Bean with honey.. excellent

A lovely beer. The proper imported stuff is an absolute delight but even the gear made under license by Shepard Neame is way above the average fare on offer most places

I can't agree Antrimman! I can't, i noticed when I'm home theres a lot of bars in the City with it on tap Hatfield to name just one.  

I'm a fan of the Bluemoon however


I love a pint of blue moon but the bottles are not near the same.

Can anyone come up with any other words in the English language (aside from an Arab countries name) where 'q' is followed by a letter other than a 'u'?
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

Qwerty as in a qwerty keyboard I believe is now a word in the dictionary but other than that I thought that rule was pretty well known?

I'm confused. Qatar follows your rule as the 'a' follows the 'Q' no?
