Well, these are not quite orders but families. Either way, taxonomy is really just a human way of categorizing things, and you're right, a lot of it is of little importance even for most biologists.

Second this. Nothing higher than family is relevant at school, and even that changes frequently.

This is a more interesting side discussion than some, like that terrible statistics derail. Or was that the stupid comments thread?

Don't forget the epic supply/demand tirade...

Because you didnt like it or because its not an English Pale Ale? I'm still not as up on my styles as I would like to be.

Blame the brewer:

"A beer cloaked in secrecy. An ale whose mysterious and unusual palate will swirl across your tongue and ask more questions than it answers. A sort of dry, crisp, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there's never been anything else quite like it. "

I found this review of that beer particularly funny. I had no idea that Bud and Coors were "reds":

"Overall - This is how Magic Hat got to where they are. Makes sense, this is a decent fruit beer that represents almost like a crossover between domestic "reds" like Coors or Bud and into the micro scene through fruit flavor. I give it between a 3 and a 4 because my under 3 is reserved for domestics and other brews that I consider "below-average". This brew is slightly above-average, so I have rated it as such."

it's definitely a fruit beer. I have issues with fruit in my food. fruit can be food and I don't like food in my food.
