n.— «Half the pubs in Brisbane these days don’t seem to sell them, instead forcing the hapless toper into a choice between a whopping great pint or something resembling a small glass thimble with a handle on it. Either that or they serve beer in what is called schmiddies (halfway between a schooner and a middie, or pot)—and charge you about $4 for the privilege.» —“Amber without ambience” by Paul Syvret Courier-Mail (Bowen Hills, Queensland, Australia) Apr. 3, 2007.
