Wot...No England?

Thought a few breweries might be knocking out commiseration specials to mark the England football team's most recent bout of ineptitude, but so far I have only found this one. Not known for it's comedy beers, Ossett Brewery has inexplicably gone all witty on us with this 4.3% derivative, complete with a chad cartoon pumpclip to rub it in. I've heard when it comes to games the brewery is more supportive of egg-chasing than football - so I guess this is probably not intended as a sympathetic brew. Their tasting notes are as follows: "A mellow copper coloured ale. Lightly bittered but with plenty of tangy hop aroma." Only lightly bittered? - hardly how most England fans will be feeling I think!
