Of course we all knew it would come someday.... probably after all the imported ales summed up an good share of the total imported beers and after a few regional upstart USA breweries started to offer ales also, like those imported from Canada and the UK. What a laugh...Anheuser Busch launches and "American" ale...how ridiculous,
coming for the "King of Beers" company , that never had an ale to offer in the last decades....I for one would explain to newcomers to "ale" about the differences and especially as regards what the "F" is " American" Ale?!!!Sad
