    Can you now get real Absinth outside of Czech republic? I will be in Germany Italy, Belgium and maybe France would like to pick some up. Will I be able to find it in any of these countries?

    Heh, I'm not sure you could ever get "real" absinthe in CZ. That green stuff they sell was invented in the '90s for tourists and UK export.
    The real thing is originally from Switzerland and France, and it is legal everywhere now. Including the US, but... hmm... Utah? Can you even drink beer there?

    I'm not sure that BA is the best place to be talking about this though, check out or . They are the BA of absinthe with forums and a system for compiling and averaging reviews.

    BTW, the trail was great! I highly recommend it!
