Title: So you are out in the woods and spot this...
Post by: pinnah on January 25, 2012, 08:48:46 PM
You have been out for a few hours and pretty thirsty.
You are almost back to your vehicle and you spot this on the ground:

Seeing the pushed out bottom makes you think there is a chance...

Sure enough.  Unopened.

Whadda ya think?  ;D

Or find its rightful owner, throw it through his or her closed window and curse them for polluting the woods with a toxic chemical.

I would pick it up and head back to the car.

Then when I got home.... I would throw it in the trash.  ;)

No way, pushed out bottom would make me worry that it's unsafe.

If the can were properly intact, I might guzzle it if I were thirsty enough. Possibly while holding my nose. (Depends how flavorless it is, I suppose.  Never tried the stuff.)

I would not touch it. Judging by the color of the Rockies on the can, it's way to warm for my taste.  ;D

I can't see how wild variations in temp would affect the flavor very much when we're talking about KL. :P

Pick it up, crack it, dump it out, pack the can out and throw it in the recycling.

Beer snob?  I'd do the same with a canned craft beer.  I tend not to drink from containers I find in the woods.

Target practice. About the only thing that is good for. THEN I would properly dispose of the shot up can....

Keystone Light: Not Even Once.

Where were you when I needed you?  Father-in-law had a bunch of that on vacation one time.  I had "Once" and I would have been much better off had I seen your advice prior to that.

If you can find the can, you haven't shot it enough.

That sounds more like it...shoot it till it's gone.  :)

When my kids were young we would take leftover cans after parties and use them for target practice for my son's bow and his BB gun.  good family fun in the front yard, especially when it's 110F outside.

Maybe I should have said you are really thirsty and had been sucking on a juniper berry for the last hour. :D

More information:

- the bulging bottom is from freezing and expansion
- the sun side of the logo was definitely faded
- this is a "specially lined" can
- the production date said 2009
and remember, it does say Always Smooth on the can.

You can change your vote if you want. ;)

Was it drinking temp? Tell me it was cold and tasted great! ;D

 :-[, it was cold, and I was dang thirsty.

I guess a "prize" like that...in other terms "an unopened beer".... is not something I would generally pass up.

I wiped the lid clean, held it out away from the body, and with one eye squinted....cracked it.

The first sip was nice.  Cold, wet and bubbly.
The taste brought back my high school years, although I have never drank a Keystone.

About a third of the way through the high level of carbonation made me full, and my thirst was quenched anyway. 
I poured it out and brought it home for a photo to bother you fellas with.  ;D

Cheers.

oh man I used to drink that stuff in my college days because it was 25 cents a draft on Friday nights.  Id buy 12 at a time and see how fast I could get wasted....it didnt take long at 25 cents and the putrid taste made you force it down even quicker.

I'd drink it. It's free, right?
