"None of the above seemed that bad ,so to get back on theme, 'Bent's bitter' in Liverpool, so foul the locals had to drink it half and half with a bottle of brown ale , 'brown split' or something."

Higson's was another beer from Merseyside, equally as rancid.

Didnt they then bring out Brew 11 which was worse? Brew 11 was brewed in Yorkshire and was just as bad, if not worse as you say. EDIT :- That statement is wrong, it was in fact brewed in the Midlands by M&B. For some unknown reason I was confusing it with that other weasel pi$$, Stones. :roll: :oops:
