It's a good question. Unfortunately, there isn't a simple answer.

Firstly, what year you're talking about is of vital importance. Just like X Ales, K Ales underwent considerable changes over the years. So there's no one single answer to that question. Rather there are several.

"So are you going to give us all those answers?"

"No."

"Some of the answers?"

"No."

"Any of the answers?"

"No. Not yet."

First I have to put the evidence together. This is part one.Of the evidence.

I have to admit that this is a bit of an experiment. I'm not sure if the above table is suitable for a blog post. I'd be interested in your comments.

No insightful analysis today. Just the first shovel of dirt in my data heap. More to come soon.



And I got to mention Barclay Perkins again.https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5445569787371915337-4019121320290406881?l=barclayperkins.blogspot.com
