    The only one I definitely know is 9 and the one I'm clueless on is 7. The rest are a combination of instinct and guesswork.

    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,

    Here's my take on this :-

    1) It was always known as Tavern Keg.
    2) I had no idea that KI were that old!
    3) I thought it happened in the 1970s!
    5) I had something in the back of my mind that ESB was a rarely found winter ale.
    6) Is a pint of Gold Top less fattening than a pint of Batemans Mild?
    7) Dortmund was a total guess. I know nothing anout German beer but had something in the back of my addled mind that there was a beer connection with Dortmund.
    10) I've been to Princetown but was following the New Testament (cider guide) across Dartmoor. Hill's cider was in just about every pub. Jail Ale to me is an imitation of Directors, very sweet and brown. Sadly it's a permanent fixture in many SW England Spoons.

    Good quiz! I once did a quiz with a picture round including brewery logos from the 1978 GBG. Included were the Ram and Griffin which I thought would be nice and easy. Nobody had a clue! The worst thing was that it was in a MacMullen's pub and nobody even knew the Hart!
