It's help Martyn Cornell weekend here at SUABP. Here's another oldDutch advert supporting his assertion that Burton Ale isn't Pale Ale.
Take a look at this:
Het Nieuws van den dag, 3rd June 1891.

Coincidentally, a good snapshot of Heineken's products before they became a Pils-only (just about) brewer. Beijersch was a dark Lager, in case you're wondering. Intirguing that Van Vollenhoven brewed two Stouts.
Here's another slightly earlier advert, with India Pale Ale and Burton Ale clearly differentiated:
Can we agree Burton Ale and Pale Ale or IPA were completely different types of beer, that just happened to both be brewed in Burton?
