A pint, please. (Posted on 2017-08-20) Difficulty: 2 of 5
A stranger walks into a bar, looks at the board, puts $5 down and asks for a pint. The barkeep asks if he wants the Stout or the Amber. The stranger asks for the Amber.

Another complete stranger comes in, looks at the board, puts $5 down and asks for a pint. The barkeep immediately pulls a pint of Amber.

How did the barkeep know what the second stranger wanted?

Assuming   prices differ, say  Amber for 5 and Stout for 3.75<o:p></o:p>

1st customer put a 5 pound bill (paper!), while the second   decided to pay in coins, placing exactly   the amount - no tip, mind you, thus avoiding any further  questioning.
