Oy, you're barred... BZZZT
Video Report Friends, does life get any better than this? It’s a robot. It grins. It serves you beer. Watch - and drool. Hands up if you want one?

...i think i'd rather have Caroline / Carol. I bet she can open beer bottles and load the dishwasher, as well as a lot of other things to boot! (i'll let readers use their own imaginations here)
Maybe the robot could be re-trained to throw beer bottles at the annoying moron in the orange jumper.
Load of crap!
Nothing, absolutely nothing, will replace the beer drinkers favourite of a barmaid who's all tits and legs... especially when they're foreign and are vaguely amused by your drunken regurgitating of corny old chatup lines having never heard them before! Well, it worked on my last (French) missus!

...To all the real ale reactionaries - keep flying the flag!
And why on earth would I want a drink poured for me by a lump of metal instead of a buxom wench, or at the very least a bitter and twisted, yet infinitely more entertaining career barman?
Mine's the leather jerkin with Male Chauvinist Pig painted on the back.

The reason there's a large head is because almost everyone who serves the stuff up pops the glass down flat and leaves the gas-propelled - nitro-keg, invented by Guiness, and a crime against decent ale - liquid to pour out of the tap.
Half a pint's worth of proper pulling experience tells you if you hold the glass at an angle, this is far less of a problem. And gets the beer to the thirsty punter (ie. me) much more quickly.
This is why I gave up drinking Guiness in pubs. Stick to Guiness Export, sold in bottles, pours a treat and is far more flavoursome.
This week I have mostly been drinking Roaring Meg:
The worst possible pint of Guinness is served in Toners. They just pull it straight in a full pint and then you have to watch it settle and then taste it. It tastes like metal filings mixed with the bitterness of disappointment. The 2/3 pint pause gives a decent head which doesn't immediately go nicotine brown and flatten to a millimetre in height.
Guinness have instituted a task force which goes round the pubs checking for clean beer lines and doing refresher pint pulling courses for the more imbecilic barmen.
