By which I mean I drank two half cups of beer over a period of 3 hours, well over a year after turning 21. :P
My class had an unofficial bar crawl, and I got convinced to go. I made it three bars in before we went to this place that had balconies and lots of stairs, narrow places, and people getting angry. Getting somewhat nervous, I decided to leave. But there were these crazy stairs, and then angry drunk people in an alley. I said "yeah" when they asked me a question that seemed to necessitate agreement. I don't remember what it was. Oh, and earlier in the night someone offered me what I thought was water, but it was really vodka-water, as I soon learned after taking a large gulp of it. Possibly the highlight of the night was when a girl from my class made me pinky swear that I was actually having fun and not just pretending to. Complete with kissing our own hands while our pinkies were locked.

I agree that it tastes like unsweetened iced tea, and I have said that to others and they have disagreed.
Ugh, I still hate the taste of beer. All I taste is the alcohol, doesn't matter what brand/dark/light. All tastes the same to me.
The bar crawl sounds fun though. It sounds like you had fun, up until things started getting weird, so I don't think you broke your pinky promise =P
You still go to Iowa right? I'm sure the bar scene is pretty good there, since it's a Big 10 school.

Are you drinking American light lagers? I can see where you're coming from with one of those. Get something nice and hoppy though? Hopps. --- Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both. -Mimir

First beer I tried, I believe, was Killian's, and I've basically stuck with it. I've tried maybe 5 others and none of them pleased me as much as Killian's, not even Guinness, which scores points with me (as does Killian's) for being Irish.

For the most part, yeah Will. But, I've tried, and when I say "try" I mean sip enough to set a sliver or a taste, several others. Just the smell of beer can make my stomach churn.
Ironically, in a way, my first beer was a Heniken that I was more or less forced to drank. I ended up gulping down most of it no problem. Had a bunch of other beers that night too with no problem. Now? Ugh... I don't even drink that much, and almost never until I turned 21. It's an odd situation for sure. --- Well, there is a new accent of n00b language.

I've always hated beer... not sure why... the hoppier the worse. On the other hand, I can drink most liquors with a smile, and I never slam a shot because it's wasted enjoyment of the taste.
I don't believe in getting drunk, but a bit below that and it can be good... finding the measure that can lower the unnecessary inhibitions without forsaking the necessary ones. --- SIGNATURE
On the other hand, I think the iced tea thing is the most bizarre thing I've heard today, but if there are two who proffer this ostensibly preposterous tale, perhaps it isn't quite that crazy. --- SIGNATURE

I still don't like beer, after all these years and lots of people trying to get me to like it.
Some caveats: I do enjoy a lambic and am okay with other fruit beers.
