    For me the rot began when they discontinued Well's Fargo and replaced it with the boring Bombardier. Fargo was their answer to the original Ruddlles County and possibly also GK Abbot being a similar strength and style. Does anyone else think their Banana Bread Ale is disgusting?

    I have to agree.

    I am surprised how little they have paid for these once iconic brand names. Are Marstons trying to create a monopoly of boring brown beers ?

    Youngs + Wells = Whitbread MKII.

    Divest the brewing, go into real estate.

    Probably paid more than they're worth.

    Never ask a man if he's from Yorkshire, if he is he will soon tell you, if not there's no need to embarrass the poor chap

    The idea of a beer that tastes like bananas is so off-putting that I have never tried it.
