Default Beer in WW2

I've tried to find out some info online about what kind of beer was around during WW2.

found this site http://www.europeanbeerguide.net/warbeer.htm and heres a good photo http://www.military-history.org/wp-c...IN-BLIGHTY.jpg (beer looks pretty dark there)

just curious about the evolution of beer and what would have been wanted/produced. it seems like british beer OG stayed pretty solid right through while german OG dropped big time on average. any more information or thoughts would be cool

i think id heard before that the first world war was the death of strong bitters in england

I've read many books on WWII pilots and most drank beer from the local pubs. They had to get used to warm beer for the first time in their lives.
There are accounts where pilots got cans of beer, put them in the wings of their fighters and flew to altitude to get the beer ice cold.
