Definitely less filling!

Lite Beer from Miller?

Who wants to drink thin beer cut with water and advertised as being worth drinking?

Get a beer with some body or drink water.

If miller lite is the 3wt, then Guinness has to be the 14wt - go heavy or go home!

Guinness draft is only 125 calories for 12oz. Hardly a heavy weight.
More like a 4wt with nice hardware.

Is fishing really this slow? Yes, yes it is. I'll skip the beer and go with a good single malt scotch. Warms you up faster and easier on the bladder.
