    It seemed to appeal to both regular mild and bitter drinkers.
    If its the same beer it must taste the same but the brain gets tricked by the colour.Coca Cola tried a clear version of coke after removing the colouring but nobody liked it.I have tried the TT Golden and Dark mild side by side and definitely thought they were different beers.

    Default Camerons Brewery to open a third Head of Steam, in Leeds.

    Sounds quite promising on paper, although I dread to think how much a pint will cost.

    Some wierdness with M$'s plagiarism system, it's fine on the original Mirror story. Though the second pic seems to have automagically appeared.
