I was being lazy. Stupid. Not listening to my own advice.
When I say check your dates, I mean follow though and really check your dates!
A red flag was raised when I noticed the cans were kinda beat up. But I did not listen.
My lazy check of the first two dates 06/19/.. is what killed me. My brain auto-filled “2020”.
As soon as I took the first sip, I knew. It’s old. And I’m shit at beer tasting, giving notes. A master I never shall be. But this? This was obvious.
The damn beer was over a year old. Undrinkable. $12 of perfectly good beer money (literally) down the drain. I guess I won’t die though.
