    I do believe beer floats will become Brunchgate fare.

This is a wheat beer with lots of alcohol, 10.3%ABV. Tons of body, it pours almost thick, but with almost no head. Deceptively billed as a white, the color is a deep gold, and like most wheat beers it is fairly cloudy. Very bitter, the fruity flavors bear out citrus notes with spices on top. I'm impressed by this ale, I'll be buying it again after I try the others in the series. (The store had an imperial double bock and imperial stout, not sure if it's just those three.) Comes in a 4 pack, and pricey, almost 10 bucks. But that's 1/2 the price of Chimay when you consider you get a total of 48 ounces instead of 25. One last note, the bottle suggests aging. I bet this would be really great in a year. I won't be finding out. I'll have to trade away to DD so he can cellar them for a later review.

    I purchased the SA mix back in the summer which included the SA summer ale... I have to say that I like that one! I think there was also a boston ale (dark brew), which I also like very much! Yum, Yumm, Beer! the other variety wasn't bad, but who cares about taste after 2 or 3 good ones?

    If you all make your way to Northwest Ohio, feel free to join me. Either that or join us in Seal Harbor, Maine as we vacation with our family late in July.

    I really would like to get to a football game in Durham this next season.

    I had a Sam Adams White draft at Ruby Tuesday's last week. It was their beer of the day so I ordered it. It was a little bitter for my taste. I finished it, but when I went there the other day, I ordered a Bud Light!

    Ahhh, but it's good to see you experimenting.

After a little experimenting I concluded that all joking aside, the beer "cooler" was better to me than the float. The more the ice cream melted into the beer, the better I liked the entire concoction. I believe it would make a great summertime drink out on my deck.
    Ahh, another convert

    Save one of each for me and I'll trade you the Imperial Pilsner, Imperial Red Ale and an Imperial Stout. Seriously.

    Haven't been off-topic in a long time, but when beer's involved, hey, it's worth a gander. Ozzie will be surprised to know I'm a Bud Light Lime convert from Bud Light, not sure I'd want to dabble putting ice cream in it, but who knows. I'm working on one now before turning in, getting up at 5:45 and returning to work, only to get home, lubricate, in prep for crushing the Twerps tomorrow night. Thursday I'm off, the forecast is decent, so I'll try the new BLL cans on the golf course, to see if it serves as good a steering fluid as regular Bud Light Stay tuned, I'll answer Thursday night.

    Hmm, BLL posts are maybe left for the "Ycch, Beer" thread...

    Welcome to the beer gang, duketaylor - the OTB drinkers are a friendly bunch.

    I'm not surprised, that's what you ordered at the Millennium before the NC State game. IIRC, they didn't have it available. I've never tried it, but I do like lime in Mexican beers, like Tecate' or Corona, so why not!

    Funny, last night I was drinking a Bud Light Lime (BLL) while reviewing this thread to see if anyone had talked about this brand yet, but I pooped out early after a long day. I was surprised to see this morning that someone else was doing the same thing and posted about it! What a small world, GMTA! I had been seeing BLL and wondering about it and finally this past weekend I tasted one for the first time. I had heard others give it mixed reviews, but was pleasantly surprised that it had a similar taste to a corona (probably the light) with a lime, however, it wasn't as heavy as the real corona with a lime, but would do in a pinch to quench the thirst!

    GOBA? They will ride within a mile or two of my home again this summer. All riders should have a beer float break.

    No - just a family vacation. Started and ended in Toledo with overnight stops in Findlay, Springfield, Fostoria and a few others. Enjoyed the B-17 project in Urbana and the chocolate shop outside West Liberty. If you haven't seen the B-17 project, it is worth a visit. I think they are in the middle of moving to a bigger building at Grimes Field, so not sure how much you can see for the next few months - I believe their camera is offline at the moment.

    Two beer happenings to report. Friday, March 6 there is a beer tasting for charity event in Toledo. Several breweries and distributors will be "selling" short pours of their products. Goose Island and Bells are among the breweries. To prepare, I bought a bottle of Bell's Hopslam to drink this weekend. I am wondering how much of a honey taste it has. Probably has been reviewed here, but I am too lazy to search for it.
