Robert Christy, comp.  Proverbs, Maxims and Phrases of All Ages.  1887.
 
Ale
 
Ale sellers should na be tale tellers.  1
Ale that would make a cat to speak.  2
Good ale is meat, drink and cloth.  3
He mends like sour ale in summer.  4
He that buys land buys many stones,
He that buys flesh buys many bones.
He that buys eggs buys many shells,
But he that buys good ale buys nothing else.
