Milsem cormae cétdeoch.

Milsem cormae cétdeoch.

(sweetest * of ale * first-drink)

The first drink of ale is the sweetest.

One of the many maxims in "Tecosca Cormaic". A slightly less terse version is found in the Book of Leinster (345d58): "Milsem cacha corma a cét-deog." = The sweetest of every ale is its first drink.
