Old English

After being utterly humiliated and down right hurt by a Canadian today, I began to think of what the best American beer is. At least, which of them are better then the standard Canadian beers. Well it’s obvious really; our best beer is "Old English", or "OE", as it is commonly referred to as. I would assume from its name it's a beer that was created using an old English recipe. Mmmm those Brits really know how to make a good beer, and thusly OE's roots are of fine stock. Its clearly a beer with the consumer in mind, I can just see the marketing department meeting. "Who is our primary consumer of the Old English?", response: "It must be a sophisticated male, typically driving a Jaguar" Hmmmm, they have obviously made a strong effort to maintain there standing as a quality beer. In addition to, what I'm sure are the best ingredients, they have put considerable thought into the packaging and freshness of the beer. How many other fine beers incorporate a resealable top? Aside from all of this, you can just tell that OE is a quality beer just by looking at the size of the bottle. Most beers are a 12 0z.s, and some are 22-24oz.s, but OE is packaged in 40oz bottles. Certainly they are confident in the quality of their product, as it takes a special kind of consumer to enjoy 40oz of beer in one sitting. I would venture to say that only a true connoisseur would select such a product.
So take that Canada...America may not have much, but we do have Old English!!!!!

On a serious note...
I wonder if the canadian version and the us version are any different. I wouldn't be surprised if they were. We need to set up some sort of taste test.
