And just now having asked as I recall this some hours hence
My favoured beverage not in stock just on paper
With some annoyance yet received paling it made sense
A pale ale is not a stout but something other.
Served up and bottle topped I leaned forward connoisseur like
As I poured it frothed forth with some surprise
And when it settled almost not the yeast inside put up a fight
While I surrendered to the taste that did arise.
