Of Ales and Virgins

Don't get your knickers in a twist. This story has nothing to do with plying college co-eds with beer at a mixer to advance your scoring chances. But it does have to do with virgins--as in Virgin Trains--where a new beer will be served along with the new rail service.

The brew is called Tilting Ale, and it's described as having a "high-speed whoosh of flavour tilting smoothly into a light, hoppy taste and arriving, right on time, at a clean finish of bitter." If you didn't get the railroad metaphor in that description, you've likely never been a fan of trains. The PubScout confesses that the "Tilting" reference is a bit hazy, as my tilting is usually reserved for windmills and not among my preferences when riding the rails.

Nevertheless, you can read the whole story here, and draw your own conclusions.
