    Maybe this question sounds quite stupid.This friend of mine from London used to call any beer : A COLD ONE. Is that a popular way of saying or was it just an habit of his ?

    When I saw your subject line -- and before I opened your message -- I thought "a beer." So I would guess that it's very, very common. Cheers!

    It's amazing that I've only heard it from him !
     
  4. Quite correct. It's mostly an Australian expression, I believe.

    I thought it was mostly an American expression. It is very, very common, as Copyright says.
