>David Vs Goliath Vs Valuev

This is one of Marks And Spencers British beer range; Yorkshire Bitter. Not a bad drop – bottle conditioned, a chewy, fruity mouthful. It’s made for M&S by Cropton, currently undergoing legal proddings from eccentric Tadcaster brewer Samuel Smith. I don’t know about you, but the first thing I notice about this bottle is that large white rose. It’s the white rose on Cropton’s Yorkshire Warrior labels (which actually show the Yorkshire Regiment’s cap badge) that caused Samuel Smith to get in touch with their learned friends. I wonder if one of Europe’s largest companies – who presumably have a correspondingly large legal department and very deep pockets – can expect a letter from a Tadcaster solicitor?
