    Famed 'beer hunter' dies

    LONDON, England (AP) -- Michael Jackson, a leading world beer critic who praised the brews of Belgium and acknowledged he would never be as famous as "that Michael Jackson," has died. He was 65.

    Jackson, known as "the beer hunter," died Thursday of a heart attack at his home in west London. His body was found by his house cleaner, Paddy Gunningham, his long-term partner, said Friday.

    Not just Scotch whisky, but whisk(e)y in general; although it often seemed that, like most UK critics, he didn't really "get" American straight whiskey. He will be missed.
