Beer Floats

The root beer float is a delicious ice cream treat/drink. In thinking about it, the question "How would a float made with beer instead of root beer taste?" will inevitably arise.

The answer is a horrible and disastrous creation. I tried making a vanilla ice cream + Miller Lite float this Saturday and it was fricking disgusting. The ice cream absorbs some beer, becoming a flavorless white mass that floats on the beer. For its part, the beer becomes creamier in taste due to dissolved ice cream. Perhaps my problem was that I was using a piss-water beer like Miller Lite. Nevertheless, the results of this little experiment were so disastrous that I would not waste a good beer (like Fat Tire or Warsteiner) on another beer float.
