    I usually drink Boulevard Wheat but while at Applebees the other day I though I'd try one and see for myself.

    Now I've never tried gasoline but if I had I would swear that that's what the new beer tastes like. Either that or turpentine

    Two best beers in the world:

    McEwan's Scotch Ale
    and
    New Glarius Belgian Cherry Red

    Of course a Leinie's Big Butt Double Bock is good fast drinking too.
    and for the real connosieur of malty flavored beers, Hardy's Ale.

    There were two products of theirs I would drink. Bud Ice and Bud Dry. But that's if nothing else was available.

    I got way hammered on that Platinum brand last week.
    Never again LOL.

    Oh- and the hangover was just plain nasty.

    It's nothing to write home about, that's for sure.
