Is it just ABV x Quantity that gets you drunk.

I'm not sure if it is coincidence or something else but this is the second time I have drank my latest batch of Blonde Ale.

Both times I have felt very drunk after 4 pint of it. It's around 6% most of my brews are around 5 and I can drink 4 to 5 of those and not feel anything more than a slight buzz.

Maybe I've got a cold again. That's what I put it down to last time.
I cleared up last time after 30 minutes.

I've had plenty yo eat today so it's not because I'm drinking on an empty stomach.

i'd say there are a ton of variables:

the mood you are in...
the people you are with...
how much you have had to eat...
what you had to eat...
ABV of brew...
QTY of brew...
other intoxicants you've injested...
etc...

I think it has to do with you being an effing lightweight, orfman

That, and all that Meth you did on your lunchbreak.

haha. Yeah, methylated spirits. Ah, jolly ol englund. I suppose you call it something a bit more charming across the pond. Here, it's meth, or methamphetamine. Still better than BMC, even if it does this to ya...

Also time you drank them. So if your drinking them in the same amount of time then you should get a larger buzz. If you take extra time than no.

Yah, meth (speed, when I was in college) is a problem up here. A new law was passed to restrict the makings. The results? More and better meth coming up from Mexico and all the local manufacturers going on welfare! There's a whole series of before/after pictures on that site.

I've noticed the ABV effect. My personal observation: I drink at about the same rate, regardless of the ABV (4-8% range). So, the alcohol is coming in faster at high ABVs and the old liver can't handle it.
