I called in at the local bottle shop on the way home to pick up a siz-pack of Bundy & Cola
, and I noticed they were selling a new James Squire
beer: Golden Ale. They also had a Little Creatures Pale Ale
, so a grabbed a bottle of that and a six-pack of the Golden. I put the bundy and beer on the counter, the bloked scanned it and said "Twenty dollars."
He saw my look and said "Twenty for the Bundy."
"What about the beer?" I asked.
"We'er trying to get rid of that."
"Nothing. We're giving it away."
I fear I had a Homer moment, for a moment. I didn't want to appear greedy so I didn't go freezer diving.
The Golden Ale is very yummy. It's mildly fizzy, shightly hoppy and very drinkable. It is a Yummy Beer. I shall return tomorrow and buy another sixpack. Or three.
The Little Creature's Pale is a bit fizzy, a bit too hoppy and a little too tasteless. I'm glad I only got one bottle. A beer that costs nothing isn't free if you have a fridge-full you can't drink.
