Pepsi is being sued by a Madison County, Illinois man who claims he found a mouse in his Mountain Dew. Ho-hum, right? But wait, Pepsi came up with the greatest defense ever: you'll never know you're drinking mouse!
Pepsi has moved to dismiss the case, according to the Madison St. Clair Record. Why, you ask? It cited expert testimony that the mouse would have dissolved in the soda before Ball ever had the chance to drink it.
Wait, so, is Pepsi's defense basically that you'd never know if there was a mouse in your soda? Kind of.
Pepsi's expert says the mouse would have become a "jelly like" substance long before Ball ever popped the top.
No one would prefer that "flavor." Now imagine not just a tiny colony of something left by a fingerprint, or an unscrubbed edge, but a whole rotten fetid corpse.

I think someone was pulling your leg. I brew beer, and hard cider as a hobby. Decomposition products in your wort would create byproducts that would not only taste extremely bad, but would potentially kill you. Anybody with a little knowledge of microbiology knows that the rat parts in brewsky stories are bunk.
When I first started I didn't sterilize my carboy correctly, and the wort turned. Believe me it smells so bad you wouldn't even concieve of putting it to your lips. drinking it would enduce immediate vomitting. No one would prefer that "flavor."
