Yeah, my British ales are quite Americanized, too. I like them stronger and with more foam than the Brits do.

That reminds me of my last visit to the north of England in 2016. I was dismayed to see that all the pubs carried American beers in addition to local ales and cask ales. One evening I was at the bar waiting for a refill and a guy asked for a Coors. The bartender pulled the handle and just got a hiss and a spit or two of foam from an empty keg. The customer then asked for a Bud Light, and the bartender again got just a dying sigh from an empty keg. I turned to the guy next to me and asked "I wonder what his third choice is when his first two were Coors and Bud Light?" The answer was Foster's.
