That's never happened

Last week I bought our regular four pack of Mackeson stout for my wife who has a bit of an iron deficiency and tonight when I came to open the last can for her, I found it was completely empty. The ring pull was all intact but I could just make out what looked like a microscopic pin hole in the bottom where it must have leaked out prior to it being boxed as the cardboard carton showed no signs of staining.

I had a banana once that was completely empty but never a can of beer, how odd is that. My glass is now neither half empty or half full. :)

It's probably caused by Covid 19 Bill. Well that's the most commonly used excuse these days 😉.

Never understood why it is so expensive ,they come in small cans and have a low alcoholic strength.

It's a nice enough brew but why so expensive?

It is a bit expensive I suppose but it’s what the doctor recommended. She’ll only drink half a can so I end up with the other half and over a while I’ve developed a liking for it. I’ve never been a big fan of the high alcohol content drinks so I’m perfectly ok with 2.8% and at half a whiskey glass of it per night, there’s never a hangover the next morning.

Knowing out luck the box would probably be empty. She already rattles with all the other tablets she takes, and her condition isn’t that bad. They said it’s just a bit on the low side and dietary changes would be sufficient for now. I remember my mum having a similar problem and the doctor back then recommended Mackeson. On the plus side, it’s a little social drink in the evening that won’t do us any harm.

We tried Guinness a few weeks back when we couldn’t get Mackeson but having developed a taste for it, the Guinness seemed tasteless and watery in comparison which is a bit odd because I used to like an occasional pint of it.
