Have you only tried it at the same bar each time?

Not trying to pile in on you but dh 60 m is decent. But hey, this thread is what is the worst commercial beer you've ever had, so air your frustration with it

10 barrel IPA. I've had it 3 different times in both bottle and keg and every time it has been chock full of diacetyl. It's nasty.

... but if you think it tastes like Mickey's, either you have no taste buds, or more likely the bar is serving old/improperly stored beers (or serving you a DFH 90, watered down by 50%). It's like saying, "I don't like Guinness, it tastes too much like Bud Light Lime for me" - it's a statement that simply is factually incorrect.

EDIT: Reading one of your other posts, I do agree, the beer is sweet for an IPA, but when it's a good bottle/clean tap lines it's pretty well-balanced. It still sounds like you aren't getting a good sample.

Haven't read through this entire thread, but hands-down, far-and-away the worst beer I've had is Wild Blue. Now, I don't mind your typical Bud Light/Amber Bock type beers, and am always willing to try something new. Saw Wild Blue on sale when it first came out, thought "I should try that".

No, no you shouldn't. Imagine if A-B, Kool-Aid, and Triaminic got together and decided to make a beer. I took a sip, gagged... managed to choke down about 1/3 of the glass... poured the rest of it down the drain. I think I still have 5 of the 6-pack sitting in my kitchen, because there's nobody I hate so much as to give this crap to them, and I want my drain to keep working for me so I won't pour it down the sink.

Back in college I was lucky enough to have my parents take me on a cruise to the Carribbean. We took a side trip in Barbados to snorkel. After snorkeling the boat we were on opened the bar. I challenged my mom to a beer chug contest. This is when things start to get weird. First, I lost the beer chug (still hear about it to this day-20 years later). Second, the beer was from Barbados called Banks. It was the worst tasting swill I've ever had. The bartender told me the desalinized the water that the brewery used. Well, they managed to get the salt out, but left a terrible seaweed/fish taste in there. Makes me cringe just thinking about that beer again.

Uh no haha. Here is what i said directly from my post. "My girlfriend that has no prejudice to any beer or brewery said it reminded her of the last time she drank a 40 oz of Mickey's."

What i think about it.- Weird sweetness, overly malty, no hop flavor at all, no balance in flavor. I didn't think it was off flavored just bad in general. Maybe its that i have very sensitive taste buds? Always have been very picky!!

Is there an Untappd badge for reading this whole thread?! Why did I do that? I never tried Leinie or Sam Adams ever, but based on these responses I can see my beer instincts are better than I thought. Next time I see a build-your-own-sixer, I'll try to construct a "Sinister Six" based on this thread. Cherry Wheat, Sunset Wheat, Wild Blue...Wow, so much hatred.

My problem is that beers I don't like bore me more than outrage me. Even when I tried a couple of flavors of Four Loko a couple years ago, it was more confusing than disgusting. Also, my tastes keep changing, especially since I've started homebrewing. Maybe those Stella Artois I used to pound would taste awful now...Maybe not! Heck, I tried Genny Cream a few months ago and loved it. If I had to pick example since I started homebrewing and deliberately trying to mature my taste, it would be the pumpkin beer made in Williamsburg, VA. Soap soap soap.

One incident that stands out though is from when I was twelve and on a fishing vacation with my dad in hyperborean lands. He used to love Canadian beer since it used to be the best, cheapest source of non-BMC beer. He picked up a case of Molson at the duty free and let me have one since we were in the lawless wilderness of Peterborough, Ontario. At that point, my only experience was sips of my dad's macro beers and that one time they let me have an O'Doul's. I remember liking the Molson more than anything else I'd had, but even then something about it seemed...Off. I couldn't put my finger on it and still can't, but I still remember the taste all these years later.

There was also the time with the Boone's Farm. Sure, it was in the wine section, but I distinctly remember the small print on the bottle saying malt beverage! I was shopping for Superbowl snacks, and got a bottle of the blue flavor because it was so cheap and kitsch and awful looking. I drank it during the game, and it tasted like blue, Neuromancer-style. The problem was after. I don't remember how sick I was. I literally don't recall whether I was sick in bed for 5 days or a full calendar week. If we can call Boone's Farm a beer on a technicality, then Boone's Farm Blue Hawaiian. No. Contest.
