    belch a bad beer?

    I've looked up in a dictionary an interesting defenition for "especially a bad beer".

    "Pass the belch. Anything's good on a hot day." Did anyone hear this use of "belch" in conversation?

    Re: belch a bad beer?

    belch = malt liquor; -- vulgarly so called as causing eructation. [Obs.] --Dennis. [1913 Webster]

    Malt liquor is a North American term referring to a type of beer with high alcohol content.
