I know I've mentioned some of these things on Facebook, but I thought I'd capture my food and beverage journey to date.
My first pint -- from the Shakespeare Pub in London right across the street from Victoria Station. I believe it's Kronenberg. This is a lager, which is served cold. Other choices are: bitter (dark) or stout (very dark). There is also shandy (1/2 beer and 1/2 Sprite -- although they refer to the Sprite as lemonade). The glasses are made specially for beer from the tap and come in pint and 1/2 pint sizes. Cider, which I'm drinking this evening, generally comes in cans and is only 6% alcohol with a very definite flavor of apples. The one I had earlier this week was called Strongbow, and the one this evening is Scrumpy Jack.
