    Hey, i attached some examples of how pilsner glasses are supposed to look like, at least here in Germany. It's called a "tulpe" (tulip), because of the shape.

    Also, people like to drink their beverages at refreshing temperatures, especially beer. Recommended temperature is 7-9°.

    Did a babelfish of a site which shows different types of beers and their proper types of glasses. Don't trust the fish though ;)

    What I've heard, light, pale beers are to be served in thinner, lighter glasses, and dark beers are to be served in robust, heavy glasses as a rule of thumb..

    As a barman I've never heard of putting ice in beer, cider occasionally (although its a rule of thumb with me that cider comes with ice, just a personal preference I guess)

    As for beer being served colder, over here in the UK we get quite a few brands of lager (Tennents, Carling, Carlsberg) that offer more than one version of their standard pint. Typically the lager itself and an ice cold version of it. All that means is that the beer is passed through a flash cooler usually located under the bar - this reduced the temperature of the beer by a few degrees C. The reason behind this and the reason many people prefer the ice cold version of some lagers is that the reduction in temperature actually partially numbs the tongues taste buds so u don't really taste the beer - perfect for crappy lagers i recon.

    Dunno if you get this across the water

    You have to accept that some people are after beer for the numbing, refreshing bliss it can bring if something goes wrong or you fancy getting pissed. If it's cold it's to be refreshing, if they have it any old how it's to forget, and if they drink it at the correct temperature then they truly appreciate beer. Although I appreciate a well tasted beer can be refreshing, I am talking about the beer-belly brandishing football (soccer *sigh*) fans, or in the US's case (So I've heard) Nascar fans drinking themselves silly.

    Nascar fans drink alcohol? Oh my! ;D I've been in the infield at Talladega and suspect I was one of very few people who were not consuming alcohol. It is quite a party though - titties and beer! :)

    A large percentage of fans at most sporting events in the US drink themselves silly. ;)

    Visit Ireland. Women and a lot of men drinks...tapped Bud or Carlsberg on the rocks. If they where out of ice, people put 1/4 of cold Sprite/7up in the pint instead. After 3 years i still couldn't believe what i saw at the pubs, but hey, each to their own.

    You do not drink an English ale cooler than room remperature. Old speckled hen on the chill is unthinkable. It was made to be drinked piss luke.
