Nope, not yet.

Of the NBB offerings, a buddy of mine, after I had told him I had just got back from Kansas, had told me he liked the NBB 1554 a little better.  I may have to split FT and this 1554, which BA notes as a Belgian Dark Ale with an ABV of about 5.6.  Sounds tasty.  Next roadie...

I drank a few 1554's in TX a few years ago.  I thought it was pretty good.

Oh the hell with it ! It's most likely because I cant have it so it makes me want it all the more.

Reminds me of "Smokey and the Bandit".

When I was in the Navy at Virginia Beach (NAS Oceana), I was always asked to bring back some Coors when I went home on Leave.

I'm getting my taste buds ready for this:
"Drink Carib & piss Corona!"


There are some tasty Pilsner/Lager beers out there.  MillerCoorsBud actually does a good technical job of making a very light flavored and color beer with minimal flaws.  It's just too light flavored for an increasing number of beer drinkers.  Most Pilsner style beers will be in the range of 5.5% to maybe 6% so it's not only the alcohol level involved when comparing "full strength" beers.  3.2 by weight is a bit over 4% by volume.  Many wheat beers are "full strength" at about 4.5%.   3.2 is, well....3.2.

I'm not a huge fan of Carib.  BUT, the locale in which you are normally drinking it makes it taste a lot better!

Have you had Banks Beer when in the Caribbean?

All of them seem to taste better at a lower latitude at or near sea level.

We will see if it's still a good match for the taste buds.  Never even heard of Banks.  What islands is it available on?

Kalik is pretty good, I had that on Grand Bahama.  Presidente is another that's nice for a laid back afternoon at the beach.

Banks is brewed on Barbados.  They also brew the Guinness Foreign Extra and a few other beers and energy drinks.

OK, we have beer.  Conan, I'll let you know how it is.  Picked up the last six they had at Collins.

Hoss you will like the Santa Fe Nut Brown. I tried it after Conan suggested it to me.
I have since found another favorite that I am almost burning myself out on. It's that good.
Point Special Lager. It is fantastic.

The Nut Brown is incredibly good.  Almost scary good, as I could likely sit down and drink an entire six pack in one sitting.
