There have been a variety of reasons that have been ennunciated to support the idea of when to drink. I , for one have categorized malts according to the following table:
Breakfast Malts - mild - Lowland?
Lunchtime Malts - flavorable, but not overpowering
Afternoon Malts - "good sippin' whiskies
Evening Malts - Pretty much anything goes.

Then there's

Trauma Malts - generally heavy peated
Celebration Malts - the "good stuff"

Since the above table reflects an accompaniment to food, this makes drinking part of the meal( a symphony of flavors ) and hence possible thru'out the day without the feeling guilt!

Slainte!

I'm not a big Lowland fan. Personally, I prefer the sweeter tasting bourbons for breakfast.

I'm definitely more of a Bailey's man any time before, say, 10:30am. Then I could comfortably transition to beer until around 3 or 4pm. After that, everything goes.

Ice cold Jagermeister has a green light any time, day or night.
