    'A pint of lager please.'

    Which of the following two would be your preference?

    I like my pint to look like the second one. The first one looks like it's been scraped and settled a bit or could be flat beer. I don't see any bubbles in either of them though. A few bubbles on the way up the glass is good.

    Can't I have both? I'm kinda thirsty and as slow as service sometimes is, well, may as well have both on hand.

    Is this some sort of head joke?

    Would it make a difference of some fetching young bar maid looked deep in your eyes and asked, "well, how much head do you like?"

    ok, I'm done.

    all head is good. some want more head. some want a little head and then on to the 'main course'...

    I'd be happy with either, but favor the first.

    I like the looks of the first one, but the second one has a better head on it. I would definitely need to quaff both of them in order to decide. Or we might have to do best two out of three...

    The second one looks like a Schooner, but I suppose there are some Schooner shaped pints too.
    Or if you are talking about Head, I'm a rare guy who doesn't like head ... on my beer.

    Ha-ha, good answers! :D
    Well, if I ask for a pint, I expect one, seeing as I've paid for the full amount. Dunno about you guys but I'm not a fan of the Continental habit where a large head is expected.
    I'm continually asking the young bar staff at my local pub for a top-up. It's actually an obligation under the Government Weights & Measures Act to supply the correct amount. Ten or eleven short measures net the bar an additional $3.50. On a busy night it's a nice little mark-up.
    A lot of folk don't like complaining though.
    The best I've heard is when a customer said to the barman after being served a 'pint' was:
    'Could you put a whisky chaser in there?'
    'Of course,' replies the barman.'
    'In that case,' says the customer, 'just fill it up with beer.'

    A friend of mine once told a bartender how he could sell twice as much beer, fill the damn glass all the way!
