“We like to think that Nicholas Breakspear, the only English pope, was a member of this race of inspired brewers, for Brakspear’s draught bitter is undoubtedly the best to be had in England. It is not, of course, clear and cold or thin and gaseous. It is flat, opaque, warmish and tastes of hop fields in the English summer. It also has the supreme advantage of making you slowly, but not too slowly, drunk.”John Mortimer,*‘That Elusive Ideal: The Perfect Pub (http://www.nytimes.com/1986/10/05/magazine/that-elusive-ideal-the-perfect-pub.html?pagewanted=all)‘,*New York Times, 5 October 1986
(N.B Original has American spelling of*‘draft’.)
