Adjective Ending in Lesson 19.8



Why is it das Kliener Bier instead of das Kliene Bier?


Hallo 70Augsburg!

Well spotted! Generally, if we were just talking about a small beer, it should be das kleine Bier (careful of the "ei" in klein!). Here, though, this is actually just an idiom for a small beer glass, possibly originating from a specific German dialect, and it doesn't follow the usual rules.

Keep up the good work!
