    Don't mind a Tulip myself, generally when I'm on the crafty stuff.

    It was more than just slang as everybody used it. I can well imagine John Young frowning upon it but it was a term universally used throughout their estate.

I'm old enough to remember the old women in early Coronation Street drinking Milk Stout so it must be good. I reckon it also keeps the RWhites virus at bay so it's a win-win situation.

    Absolutely. Youngs was one of a few breweries where "Ordinary" was regularly used for the regular bitter. Gales was another.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement
