254/1235) Fionn MacCool's, Brampton: Schmucker Meister Pils by Privat-Brauerei Schmucker of Germany: *1/2; malty, notes of berries, with a subdued hop edge and a mild, Saaz-like after taste; it was served a bit too cold for my liking and I am seldom one to say that;
If truth be told I was feeling a bit of a schmuck at the time. It turns out that when a fund-raiser is going on at a Chapters those books marked at $20.00 sell for $29.95 if you tell the cashier you are participating. I was under the impression that I was only donating my Plum card points. At any rate, I returned a day later and they made things right (I had purchased several copies) and the next time I am harangued at a Chapters I will demur.
