Pitched firmly at a younger market. Why? Money! Should they? No!

Since its the custom, especially amongst younger drinkers to guzzle it straight from the bottle I doubt they'll even notice what colour it is, as long as it gets 'em legless in as short a time as possible.

No, it will go the same road as the white Guinness did!

Before I clicked the link, I thought to myself only the Guinness brand could make a success of that product, so I think that with the weight of their cool marketing ads, it will sell.

obviously over the legal age young.

I think it's fair to say that every alcohol ad ever made tries to promote a cool image, whatever the age group it's aimed at.

Cockburns port, Glenmorangie, Carlsburg, Famous Grouse, Tetleys, Double Diamond, Martini, all of them aimed at different age groups, and social types, and 'cool' being the interpretation that links them all.

Look how that's changed over the years from being aimed at old fogies to the trendy set with the surreal ads of now...

But it's still a mature person's drink, the danger in alcohol ads is in the sickly sweet alcopops that are made to taste like children's squash drinks.

I'm quite looking forward to trying it out myself:)
