courage sparkling bitter

Post by FlippinMental » Thu Apr 27, 2006 10:53 pm

in my youth i spent some time away at sea with the rfa. the brew on tap in those days was called CSB, courage sparkling bitter. it was dynamite, crystal clear and lively, seeing off many a yank in drinking competitions. i'd imagine it would be bril served from a corni.

has anyone got, or know where to find the recipe?

According to this http://www.hmscarysfort.co.uk/MessageBo ... ssions.htm CSB was a "strong ale brewed for HM Ships" (although a list of naval slang probably isn't the most reliable source :D )

that's the very one, bd. boy wasn't it strong. seem's the brew has gone the same way as the navy - disappeared - and the recipe with it so it would seem.

I am working with an ex submariner who has fond memories of CSB, does anyone know of a definitive AG recipe?

Cheers
