One time, as kids, we were wandering through the woods and stumbled on the "mother lode"... it was hardcore porn (no Internet in the eighties) and four cans of High Life. The cans were so old the paint on the can had started to fade, but the porn had been protected by a plastic bag so it was still good. The beer, sad to say, was completely consumed. I remember it tasting something like water on top, and mud towards the bottom of the can. That was all we could get, though, so we "enjoyed" it.

I like Heineken, but only in the 12-pack bottles. I don't generally enjoy beer from a can, and the six packs are always skunked. The 12-packs are light-protected b/c they are fully enclosed by cardboard. When we go golfing I buy the Heine's mini-keg-cans, though, b/c that's what they sell at the course.

Best Heineken I ever had: in Schip-something airport, Amsterdam, rushing to catch our flight to Turkey. Good times, good times.

The worst liquor I ever drank was made from fermented eggs. I bought two bottles as souvenirs on that same trip for my brothers. They were literally *afraid* to open the bottles.

A few years (and pounds) ago, I was part of my university's ski team and pretty much every weekend, we would get druck as crap before the race at seedy bars. Every team acted this way, so it was like steroids, in reverse. We would check in at the hotel, wax our skis and pick up either a few 1.18L bottles of Wildcat 10% or Colt .45, drink that, and hit the dancefloor. Nothing better than getting up at 6:00 AM in the morning, hungover and bloated, to wear spandex in 0F weather.

Coors Light. Went to a friends wedding. He had some red brick, but they put them in this gigantic cooler first. They then put budlight and Coors Light on top of those. I dove in and spent like 5 minutes pulling beer after beer out of it... I could never find the red bricks, so I gave up and just grabbed a Coors. It was hot out and I just wanted a cold beer, so I was like "what the heck, I'll give it a try". Needless to say, I went home not longer after and opened a homebrew to wash the fizzy yellow taste out of my mouth.

The worst beer I ever had was a Dogfish Head. Yes, it was horrible. It was one of their beers that had an extreme ABV and was like 10 or 15 bucks for a 12oz. I got it because I heard how strong it was. It was like drinking hard liquor.

I went to a brewpub Sat. night and ordered a New Castle, not that it's the worst beer in the world, but they were giving away beer glasses with the New Castle and I didn't have that style of glass. I asked SWMBO to order one, too... so we could have the matched pair.

After that I ordered a Dogfish Head strong Belgian ale, something with "Monk" in the name. I thought it was awesome, but I could only drink it in sips because the aroma was such a critical part of the flavor.

You bought a beer because you heard how strong it was and are complaining that it was too strong? haha

i was expecting it to be tollerable. I have had strong beers and was just fine with them. This one was like rubbing alcohol with hops.

I was writing for an online dance music "magazine" down in Mexicali, MX one night for a decently top-notch DJ of the time (about 2004 I think). A buddy decided to go with me to see what the fuss was about, and we both arrived at the venue around midnight, in the middle of a farmer's front lot (about 1 acre by 3/4 acre), prior to said DJ starting his set.

The promoter stumbles up to us both and shoves cups of god-knows-what-$hitty Mexican p!ss beer in our hands, yelling expletives in Spanish for all to hear. We both shrug it off, pound the noxious brew, and my friend has a nearly-immediate gut wrenching vomitous reaction to it. 10 minutes go by, and we're decently schnockered, so we head up to the bar setup and in the most horrible Spanglish I could muster, order 2 more.

The next 4 or 5 hours are about as mysterious as the whereabouts of Jimmy Hoffa and his beloved briefcase. All I know is it's almost 7 AM, the venue ends, people are leaving, and we're 2 white boys in the middle of Hillbillyland, Mexico with no car. We end up walking the nearly 9 miles north to the border, somehow pass off as respectable American citizens at the Border Patrol station, and crash out at a McDonald's nearby. We were thrown out about an hour or 2 later by the McD manager.

I should note that it was only thanks to an extremely courteous stagehand that I didn't start trekking off without my work laptop which was still sitting on stage.

I want to find out what that brew was.

Oly Gold Light. Like Olympia wasn't bad enough. I worked as a plumbers helper for a cantankerous old fart who started drinking it first thing in the morning and drank it all day...until he could get home and start mixing drinks. Over 5 years I think I tried it 3-4 times when we were out on a BFE job site and I ran out of EVERYTHING else to drink. I never got all the way through a can. I did turn him on to Guinness...that was pretty funny to watch...he could drink a case of OGL but 2 Guinness Big Boppers and he was pissed

I know this is totally off topic and pointless but you didn't say something like "I bought it because the description on the bottle sounded good" or "I bought it because I enjoy the style." You said you bought it because you heard how high the ABV was. That's a bad criteria to buy a beer and then complain about it. In college we bought a case of CAMO 16 oz cans. They tasted like ****, but we bought them because they were 9% ABV. We understood the mess we were getting into. Anyways, which DFH brew was it?
