Read introduction

The white rose beer is Sam Smiths, which is indeed the best pint (and the cheapest) in London.

The White Rose was a group of students (including Sophie Scholl) from Ludwig Maximillian University, who were beheaded in 1943 for distributing anti Nazi leaflets in Munich.

In that dull land
of half-remembered
myths and glories

this is just
another emblem
on a beer glass,

the best pint
(and the cheapest)
in town.

But here they hold
this symbol close,
honouring a pure

young courage
that - loving life -
gave it,

hoping to wash
monstrous delusions
away with her blood.
