2 cents

Not as scientific a response as other, but from my experience drinking mass produced ice beers, for some reason seemed more likely to get a "beer headache". Didn't always notice as taste difference. i.e. Butt ice pretty much taste as bad as buttwiper. Although scientifically unsure how to say or exp...
