Which of these options is the best? In Spain, when we order a beer in a bar we have many words to call beer according to the size of the glass (caña, quinto, botellín...). How would you order a 200ml glass of beer in English ("caña")? Thanks!

In Britain and Ireland, we order draught beers in pints. The nearest imperial measure to 200ml is a half pint (284ml) and the nearest drink to the light, chilled, slightly gassy beer that you're probably used to would be 'lager'. Go into any pub or bar and ask for 'a half of lager', and you'll get more or less what you want. You'll probably be offered a choice of a couple of different brands.

I have heard someone ordering ” can I have a pint of steela/Gunees/Foster please.”
