It also leads to urine clarity.

Yeah, but you gotta stop at some point...

Wow, that practically makes me a genius!

Hunh? Perhaps I should cut back then.

Apparently they're not above acquiescing to gross pandering

But no more than a pint. That pretty much excludes admins.

Perceived mental clarity by the imbiber for like half an hour that is.

The clarity caused by beer is a bit of a catch-22. You amount you need to drink cause you to forget what you knew, and while you possess the clarity, you're incapable of coherent speech and writing, making passing the knowledge on rather difficult.

/Luckily millions of people around the world are training to reliably attain that state and to be able to pass on the knowledge they gained.

That's pretty rich, coming from a people whose distinctive accent is the result of generations of alcoholism.

If a pint is good, the whole keg must be better!

Anyways, I'm trying out this Founder's "All-Day IPA" session ale in cans right now.  It's great tasting and perfect for that Sunday just got out of the pagan ceremony sacrificing rock hyraxes and now just want to read a book outdoors getting bit to death by mosquitoes experience.

Then 5 pints must result in Einstein levels of clarity.

I experienced this recently.  You get liquid carbs and sugars like with an energy drink.  My mind started to zoom out a little bit and some pieces fell into place.  Previously  to this experience I was wondering about the existence of any benefit at all, and why Aubrey De Grey promoted beer for clarity in one of his documentaries.

My mind is clear.......and I realize I am a drunkard

Not the first Austrian to claim that

I read that as 'mentat clarity' and was confused.  Especially since I've had more than a pint already this afternoon, so you'd think I'd be doubly clear in the head.......

Aubrey De Grey has been drinking too much.

My experience it has proven to be just the opposite.

Founders is great for day drinking. Just finished a keg of it in the kegerator

I must be mentally transparent then.
