Wow! Some bars/pubs here in Sweden have 1 l beers as a kind
of joke. The normal amount for a tap beer is 0.4 l. Bottles
are usually 0.33 -- which most people prefer since they want
foreign brews. Cans are 0.5 l but jou usually can't get them
in bars/restaurants/pubs.

When my stepdaughter was in London her boyfriend sent me a
picture of her behind a pint of ale. She looked terribly
small! :-)
