Beer With Me
I once played 7 1/2 innings of sloshball (5 innings of which was spent at second base), but even that was not enough for me to get over the taste of beer. But I'm older now, and I figured there must be something to it if Foodgoat is so enamoured of the stuff. So I resolved to embark on a journey of beer discovery.
Fortunately, my first opportunity came the very next day. Unfortunately, it was in the form of Miller Lite.
Miller Lite, I found, HAS NO TASTE. It's more water than beer: not a bit of flavor, and only slightly more weight. Spring water with a slice of lemon has more substance and interest to it. Orange juice is more refreshing. Sparkling wine is more fun and more intoxicating.
Is it supposed to be like that? Do you drink it when you want water, but want a buzz from it? Or is it like that so it's easier to chug?
Why, WHY, does Miller Lite exist?
