Class 3 and 4 caramel coloring is made from ammonia, which is classified as a carcinogen. As if drinking a liver cancer juice wasn’t enough, a touch of cancer caramel enhances the Newcastle experience.

Now it wouldn’t be fair to just shit on 7 beers and not give any alternatives. Most people that drink beer don’t drink it because of its shining health benefits so there is no need to start the whole why alcohol is bad for you rant at this point.
