I am not trying to insult you, and you're more than welcome to drink whatever you like, but I just can't place a similarity between Bud Ice and Newcastle. Would you mind elaborating on what you're not enjoying with it, as maybe you got a skunked sixxer, or it was frozen and thawed in a microwave, or otherwise subjected to unwarranted abuse before it came to be in your possession?
Of course I just had an SA Cranberry Lambic, and I'm still pondering the possibility of calling poison control, as this stuff might do damage to me if I have to taste it again on the way back up, yet I can't believe it's doing me anything beneficial while it stains my innards with bad yogurt vileness...
