Thank you everyone for helping me put this into perspective. I will admit, I had a pretty good buzz when I made the original post and probably wasn't thinking straight. SWMBO is a great lady and I do appreciate the gesture.

I definately do not want to be unappreciative that's for sure. It made her happy to try and make me happy and I don't want to take that away from her. That being said, it does taste really bad and hopefully I can pawn some of it off on the family members coming to dinner tonight. They drink beer but don't know enough to know how bad it really is, lol. I just won't give one to my mother as she is the only one in my family who appreciates good beer almost as much as I do. I've got something special tucked away just for me and her, lol...a few lovely Waterloo Tripels. God I love Belgian beer.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah to all

I'm trying like hell to like the Mich & Bud "special" offerings, but most fall painfully short of drinkable, let alone good. The Porter is good, the P.A. & Irish Red drinkable, the Amber bock rates as Belly Wash at best. Most have the telltale AB yeast flavor. I'd rather drink Natty Light and save a few bucks than have lousy "Super Premium" swill.

I got a huge kick out of that original post, and also from some of the responses. I loved the way you played out your act by the smile on her face ... it was like a pilot landing a hot airplane in a tricky crosswind. Ha ha ha, well done sir, nice save indeed!

Sorry about having to suffer the crappy beer, but take it from a guy who's still a bachelor at 49, it really wasn't a bad price, all things considered.

Just drink a couple good beers first, to numb your taste buds. Or a couple shots of vodka.

look on the bright side, now you'll have 12 more bottles to bottle with.

I disagree with almost everyone!! I would take a drink of the beer, spit it all over the curtains, then throw the bottle at near her head and tell her if she EVER buys that crap again, the next one won't miss her!! Then go out into the garage and drink a good beer.

Of course, if I did that, my wife would kill me in my sleep that very night.

All joking aside, when people who don't know much about beer try to buy us presents, they often fall far short. I use these opportunities to educate them. My wife has tried and failed several times, but now she brings home some good stuff. Usually what I do is tell her how much I really do appreciate it(and I do, it's the thought that counts), then I'll bring home something in the same style within a couple of days, and let her try them both. Usually her eyes light up when she tastes the better beer and she will say something along the lines of, "Wow, that is much better. Maybe we should put the stuff I bought into the pantry for when Bill(her sister's husband) or my dad come over." She won't even look at a beer now if it's made by Bud, Miller, or Coors. And I was listening on the cell phone once when she berated a guy at the paint store who had the audacity to suggest a BMC product to her and try to convince her that it was better than something that she actually wanted. I kind of felt sorry for the guy.

Were the bottles reusable at least?

I would have to agree that shock top is not that bad. I first tried it when I was in vegas on vacation, as some of the places we went to didn't have much else besides the standard BMC lagers.

Granted I have not had it since, and I would probably not buy it in stores as there is plenty of other better beer to buy. but still, its not bad.
