Default Beers from England

A friend of mine is over in England on business and told me he would bring me back some beer if I wanted. I really don't know what is available over there that isn't here that is worth getting. Suggestions?

Samuel Smiths Organic Cider, don't think that ever came across the pond.

AGREE. Anything from Samuel Smiths that you can't get here is a score.

They have one that is aged in barrels that is supposed to be amazing, Yorkshire Stingo, good luck finding it though. That would be what I would like to try!

I'll also agree with the Samuel Smith suggestions. The cider is some of the best I've had, and I really can't complain with any other varieties I've tried.

I always pick up a few cases of Samuel Smith lager and Organic Cider when I go to Houston, as you can't get it where I live.

Jaipur IPA is outstanding, but not representative of a British IPA.

I actually managed to find a bottle over here. Being a British transplant all I can say is that you really need to go there and drink real ale fresh from the cask. What they bottle is usually pasteurized and is quite unlike the genuine article.

I'd vote for Spitfire Kentish Ale. I couldn't get enough of it when I visited there a few years ago.

It's a nice, tasty, mellow English ale.
