I noticed though, it wasn't pale.
There's a great oxymoronic tradition to modern beer names...hence we call a 4% beer "stout", a rather low IBU session beer "bitter", and a yellow bit of adjunct swill the "King of Beers".
Why do I always have to lug around my Porter, shouldnt it be lugging me around?
