Bzzt. It should be served at *cellar temperature*, which is about 14-160C,

As you note, room-temperature doesn't really hit the spot. But neither does
frozen beer, which seems to be typical with American beer and a disturbingly
increasing trend in the UK. If it's very cold, you can't taste it, so what's
the point in drinking it?

Find a better pub by consulting the CAMRA Good Beer Guide (#12.99) or
visiting one of the pubs suggested and picking up the local CAMRA newsletter

You've just never seen decent bitter, I suspect. Sturgeon's Law applies in
spades in the drinks industry.

I'm looking forward to a nice pint of Old Peculier in one of Bradford's
finer pubs (if you ignore the dodgy area and just consider the beer, anyway)
this evening.
