Must be old age: I was reminiscing about beer from my youth the other day. Post the beers from your past that are, alas, no longer with us.

Any room for an elephant in the beer graveyard?

This was just hanging on, in much reduced circumstances (ie. brewed at the other end of the country), when I started drinking (mid-90s):

Yeah. It's a big hit with furtive Bangladeshi teenage boozers, I can tell you.

Does light and bitter ever get served anywhere anymore?

I used to play football with a guy from Wolverhampton who drank light & bitter about six years ago, so my guess would be "yes". I suspect you'd get a quizzical look if you asked for it in most pubs in London, though.

Back in 1998, when I was working behind a bar, I still served it. There are probably some old geezers out there who still order it.

E10, I bet you a pint of it that you can get that in Wigan without any problems.

Has anyone every tried a bottle of Mann's Ale btw?

Me and my old school mates had a brief, eccentric period of drinking light and bitter too, when we were about 17. We were a bit odd.

Mann's was Brown Ale?
Is the Newcastle version virtually the last survivor of this?

I have seen bottles of Mann's behind the bar at a few pubs up North.
