Beer In Ads #798: You Will Enjoy …


Wednesday’s ad is for John Smith’s XXX, from around 1950. John Smith’s is a UK brand and although it’s not part of their current line-up of beers, I presume that the XXX was their strong beer. The smiling man holding the beer looks really familiar as a British comedian of the time, but I can’t quite place who it might be. Anyone have a thought?
