Mmmmmmm....Many people do that on purpose, or pay for watered down LIGHT Beers and basically pay extra for less than what you bargained for.

You do not want a beer belly ??? Do not drink beer or work out every chance you have not to look like a chuby angel.

You want to drink beer for the taste, the aroma and the pleasure of it ? ...Ditch the LIGHT beers, it's a WASTE. Just go back to the beers we all knew before the FAD started and ENJOY a PLAIN OLD Brewski. !!!

Not I. Most beers offer up their best at temps well above where ice would keep it. On the other hand, terrible beers are drinkable if completely frozen (deadens the tastebuds). No beers are at their best when watered down,

I drink beer for effect not taste. I prefer ice cold Heineken Draught in a frosted mug please for the right effect, but it does taste good to me too. At this point if anyone mentions my beer belly, I just tell them it's a baby elephant in there and ask if they want to see his trunk. I know, classy guy. Not. Beer on the rocks? Surely you jest. Don't call me shirly.

One of the regulars at a bar we used to patronize would order her beer with a glass full of ice on the side and would add it to the beer as she went along.

We put ours in the freezer for a while first (but make sure to set a timer ).

I know people who drink their beer with ice. Not I. However, I am guilty of using those plastic frozen cubes to cool off my beer when we get it home from the store and it's not cold enough. I use them for white wine too. I prefer beer that's been chilled to the right temp, but those do in a pinch!

Cool, that works...Just like when you get a Beer Growler @ your local wattering hole...after the first serving is done, the bartender normally drops in there a sealed plastic bag with ice... Keeps the Brewsky Jar at the right Temp. But Never Watered Down ....

Back in my day I was known to float a plastic cup with ice in it in a pitcher of beer. If you are drinking outside the beer can get too warm before it gets drunk. This trick helped. Have ice in the beer itself? Yuck!

I'm not a fan of light beer either. I have yet to try one that didn't taste like sour water to me.

I guess no one here would be a fan of a shandy... a girly girl drink of beer mixed with lemonade. Very refreshing after mowing the lawn on a hot summer day.
