Compared to today's wonderful selection of real ales, these were absolute rubbish. Watney's Red Barrel was the reason for the formation of CAMRA. I used to drink mainly Brown and Mild. In those days we considered this to be OK!

And not a drop of lager!

At these prices we could have got blind drunk on £1.
