I must be losing my touch.

This ad is obviously a few years old, but I only just became aware of its existence.

If you're familiar with it and your reaction is "Oh keep up grandad", I invite you to move along quickly.

If it's new to you, however, this is a banned ad from the successful 'no nonsense' campaign that ran in the early noughties, when Peter Kay was fresh and interesting and when large ale brewers still made some kind of serious attempt to sell their beers.

Ah, those were the days...
