Well back in the 1960's we had "pale Ale" in 1/2 pint bottles, and "light ale" also in 1/2 pint bottles. The pale ale was stronger and was also known as "IPA" or india pale ale that originated in the days of the British Raj in India. Watneys Red barrel was a draught bitter about that time, which was universally slated due to its taste and weakness.

Yes I do, and what about Light and Bitter - a common drink at one time, pouring a half pint bottle of light into a pint glass and then topping it up with half a bitter.

Actually it was the other way round, the guvnor pulled you a 1/2 of bitter and topped a light ale to go with it, which you added yourself.

Yup, went though a phase of that, and also brown & mild. In those days with the old wooden barrels, the cannier publicans poured the bitter slops back into the mild barrels!!!

Do you remember the Lager Top? Just short of a pint of lager with a splash of lime? I don't think anybody has that now.

Er um. Lager top is still very much around, at least it is in south london, its nearly a pint of lager with just a dash of lemonade to top up. Basically a very strong shandy! But in the 60's lager and lime was very popular, so was rum & coke, vodka & lime, brandy & babycham, merrydown cider, cherry B, oh the list goes on......

Best beer they ever did was draught Mackeson in about 1963/5, never took off and it disappeared. Lovely stuff like a sweet guinness. And oh Yes Flowers Brewmaster....
