Most beer drunk is Britain appears to be mass-produced horsepiss, same as
the US. The brands are different, but it still has to be served sufficiently
cold so you don't get to taste how foul it is.

Anybody who finds themselves in London should ping me and I'll show them
some backstreet boozers that do some cracking beer. Some of it's even
American beer.

The Coach and Horses just off Leicester Square quite often sells cider or
perry that needs a knife and fork to drink. And now I've started thinking
about it, I know where I'm going to after work...

(To be vaguely back on-topic, they have Internet access in the pub.)
