“The way the British like their beer is a standing joke based on foreigners’ shocked firsthand experiences. It’s warm, it’s flat, it’s served in those dimpled mugs, and it doesn’t taste like beer, it tastes like the backwash from a sluiced out bread bin. And of course all that stuff is broadly true, or at least it probably was forty years ago, and the reputation has stuck. The thing is, this is only a problem if you’re expecting your beer to be lager.”
