Unlike the many parts of the world people don't stand and drink at the bar.
Many bars have adopted the unfortunate European habit of pouring a full glass of lager then pouring a third of it down the drain.
Smithy100: Don't overthink it... most bar staff here are more than accommodating. If you tell them what you want using simple language (ie: I'd like a small glass of Heineken/bottle of Miller/big glass/jug etc) then they'll steer you in the right direction... also, don't be afraid/embarrassed to ask for their advice - they'll be happy to help (esp as it'll give them a chance to show off their knowledge a bit lol).

Geektastic: Be aware that, unlike the UK, there are no legal fixed measures for alcohol do a point could be anything and probably won't be the amount in question.

They have to tell you the capacity if you ask. Nicknames for glass sizes based off obsolete measurements don't have any legal standing more so than a "large" at McDonalds does
Here that is true. In the UK (and much of Europe) the glasses are exactly what they say they are, so a pint has to be a pint. Or 0.57 litres if you prefer I suppose.
Personally I think we should have official measures here: petrol does, for example, so why should beer, wine etc not?
