Orbit Beers
England

Cologne and Dusseldorf enjoy one of Europe's most entertaining rivalries, even if it doesn't get much airtime in the UK. These German cities are at daggers drawn over football, carnivals - and beer. Cologne has Kolsch; Dusseldorf Altbier. Both styles are brewed by Orbit, a thoroughly Euro-phile outfit. It's a laudable approach in a city swamped by hop-heavy pale ales, which is nonetheless beginning to appreciate Germany's magnificent contribution to the world of beer. On this occasion, I think Dusseldorf is the winner, with the nutty, bitter Neu the pick of Orbits brews. You may disagree, particularly if you're from Cologne.

Really does taste of Tzatziki but probably the second worst beer I have drunk.

Lovely malty flavour with a slight chocolatey finish just as a decent porter should be
