There's nothing like the taste of the contents of the scarlet can. It's a blast from the past, how beer used to taste before the results of marketing surveys took the taste away. It's flat, nutty and bitter. Not bland and watery. And the laughing cavalier, he's a legend too. I remember the old 80's/90's adverts....
[Cavalier sat on beach, next to a couple on holiday]

-"Take a look at those shores"

- "What shores?"

- "Cheers, I'll have a McEwans Export!"

So then the news it had been demolished. Another place we missed, the first reports were awesome, but we'd never see it.

But no, the legend lives on, and here it is in all it's malty glory. Awesome from the heights to the depths, as good as industrial zone crystal maze but stuffed full with tasty goodness.

The mouse in the grain store living in more wheat than he can eat in his lifetime. Lunch on the roof. Getting fenced in. Badly. Going underground. Going over god knows where in enclosed catwalks. Stood above security. Stood in his washrooms. Stood next to his door. Stood in the hop store. Stood in the bar. Stood in more places than anyone else has been. Boxes ticked all the way to Epic and then some.

Go here. This is where awesome lives.
