How can ale taste like begrudging sex and domestic abuse?

I mean sure, it plays a leading role in both of those things, but it shouldn't taste of them.

Quality...

Lidls are great for £1 ales. Not bad deal though.

Ah, I love me some Spitfire. Hot!

lovely booze!

Nice find, it's a great ale.

They also have 'Young's London' (something?) as part of this £1 offer. Regular price was £1.99, but they didn't have any left at my local Sains.

Good deal - I just wish that **** Reigate And Banstead had a glass recycling program - have to drive 2 miles to the nearest glass and plastic recycling depot - what a joke

One of my favourite beers - nice find. Got myself a few

jeczap - was it London Pride by any chance?

I had a look on the website - not sure if this will take you to the correct link
Young's Special London Ale 500ml

regular price £1.98 / Alc 6.4% Vol.

I'm 100% this is the one. Nothing in Redhill, was told Purley Oaks was the nearest. Customer Service can check on their system to tell you who has how much in stock - good luck

Great price for the better part of a pint of decent beer. 3 for £4 (£1.33 each) is about the best anywhere else has had recently.

These bottles are also £1.00 each at Budgens.

For the same price Budgens also have 500ml / 568ml bottles of Shepherd Neame Master Brew, Oranjeboom, Adnams Lighthouse and Gaymers Cider Original or Pear.
