I didn't know Fred ten years ago, but I suspect if he wrote a similar article today, he might be a little harsher. At 70 (then) or 80 (today), there just isn't any point in drink lite beer. Actually, at 55, I feel the same way. If you ever have a chance to try Hair of the Dog's namesake beer, Fred, you'll understand.
