Default Old beer!!!!!!!!!!!

A question for all you established beer drinkers. I have just discovered a case of Bud and one of Stella in the garage (as one does!), both are "Best before April 2016". Should they still be drinkable or should I pour them on the garden?

Agree. Also when you pour it into a clear glass check the beer is still bright and sparkling. If its at all cloudy don't drink it.

If the first two you try are OK it is advisable to try another two just in case you were lucky the first time. And then just to be trebly sure ................ etc.

I know an old guy who swore the secret of large show vegetables was to water them with beer, but he insisted upon drinking it first.

If in doubt pass them all to me and I'll test them for you. If they're all ok I'll let you know. Better safe than sorry

Throw this horrible imitation 'beer' away and buy some proper real ale - something brewed in a brewery not made in a laboratory (cue gasps of disbelief from larger lovers!)
