Caption * cold drink

U.S. President George Bush enjoys a cold drink in historic Heiligendamm, Germany, Thursday, June 7, 2007.


U.S. President George Bush, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Premier Tony Blair, Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi and EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso enjoy a cold drink in historic Heiligendamm, Germany, Thursday, June 7, 2007. The leaders of the G8 nations are holding their annual summit in the sea resort on June 6-8, 2007.


That liquid looks like beer to me.

Which one is George drinking?

39. How can it say "Non-Alcoholic" if it's 3% beer?
Isn't that like "half-beer?"

Regular beer is 6% I thought...

49. 0.5%. The score is 3% i.e. it tastes like dishwater
One of the first low alcoholic beers. It's pasteurized Heineken. If you ever tasted real milk and then tasted pasteurized milk, you'll know what it does to taste.

3% is the score which is pretty low.
The lowest score on that site is ... of course ... Busch NA (Bush Non-Alcohol?)

7. The lower picture shows the bottle.
I suppose it could be non-alcoholic beer.

At least that's what a freeper would argue.

15. It is. They sell it at truck stops.
At Green Week one year I tried a non-alcoholic beer. (I have an alibi: after nine European beers in three hours, a 145-pound man is NOT going to notice the "Bier ohne Alkohol" inscription on the booth.) It was a very good beer--much better than Bud.

44. It is legal here and sold in all stores, they sell it at soccer
games to keep the fans from getting too rowdy. There are several different kinds. Not that I would ever drink it. Hell no.

And Bush ain't drinking it either.

are we supposed to believe that he's in Germany and he's not helping himself to some German beer? Yeah. That's believable.

12. It IS beer. And he'll get drunk pretty fast since it is so much stronger than
American beer.

I bet my ass he'll do something really stupid after drinking a couple of these...oh wait, he is always doing stupid stuff anyways.
