Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Tell that to the Americans I know, who refuse to drink white unless it's been chilled in an ice bucket for half an hour.

Well, sure, but they're, you know, wrong?

Over-chilling kills wines. And beer with any flavour to it too, which just makes it join the fizzy iced-drinks category (triple but unsubtle sensation, fizz-chill-sweet ie sodas, fizz-chill-bitter ie lagers).

There was craft beer on tap at our local organic fair last Sunday. The brewer malts his own home-grown barley and has planted hops so he will soon have his own. The result is carefully made and pretty good. He has what I'd call a brown ale, that is really decent stuff out of the bottle. But fizzed-up and over-chilled out of the keg, it was just bland.

So what do you say about Air France serving chilled red wine (this happened to me).
