For some reason we're getting saturated with Newcastle Brown Ale in the States

It's worth a taste but definitely not award winning. I'll drink it when no other Euro beers are available but I'd rather something dark. If I were to hit London pubs, what should I order?

Don't hit the London pubs, mate, Go to Berlin instead and get some Schulteiss.

The reason for this is simple. The stuff is bottled in Yorkshire, and by simply pumping from the River Wharfe John Smith's Brewery make an awful lot of money selling it to the undiscerning.

Anything involving a MILF with huge bangers pulling on a bit of penis-shaped wood, with the end result being a frothy mass of indeterminable liquid ending up in your pint glass.

Spitfire, Old Badger's Nipple-something along those lines.

You're not drinking enough of it, try doing 10+ bottles in a row for full effect. Hope you know the County Sheriff.

Anything which sounds German or at least Continental. Avoid drinking any of the local pish, as after 6 or 7 pints of it you begin to sound like Dick van Dyke and develop a strange desire for 'buttons' and 'jellied eels'...cor blimey.

1. Avoid anything pretending to be German, Irish or Australian
2. Avoid anything chilled / cold
3. Avoid anything artificially frothy.

You can't go that far wrong if you follow those rules - plenty of good suggestions made above - and it depends whereabouts in the UK you are, as Beers tend to be very local; many simply don't travel further than a few miles at all well. Bottled beers? Again, lots of nice ones easily available in supermarkets - anything pretty much by Shepherd Neame or Badger, Fullers or Youngs, for a start.

Oh, and I forgot No. 4. Most beer made north of Watford is pish.
