078/365 Ice Cold Beer Splash

I have seen some really good splash shots and thought I would try my hand at it. And of course, if there is a beverage involved, why not it be Ice Cold Beer? It hurt a little bit to watch the beer go flying and not into my mouth. When I was in college, I felt the need to save the cap for every beer I drank. This is just a tiny fraction of the collection that sits in a drawer in my shed. The beer used here is Michelob Amber Bock. My favorites are Sam Adams Boston Lager and New Castle. What is your favorite Ice Cold Beer? Do you have a splash shot, if so, drop a link.

-Sorry, no strobes for this. Just shooting into sun with a big gold reflector located camera left to bounce some light back at caps and beer mug.
