Great beers you DON'T like?
Is there a beer that is consistently held at high regard that you just don't like?

Mine: Anchor Porter

I picked up a sixer of this and took it up to the counter. Another guy came up to the counter with hands full and saw the Anchor Porter and said "Oh, I'm getting that!"

The way the flavors last and transition on my palate are awesome, but there's something about it that just doesn't let me finish a whole bottle of it.

Allaghash white ale is mine. For some reason, that beer just doesn't taste right to me, even though I usually like wits and people seem to love this one. Something about the spice. That's the thing about spices in beer, they can be wonderful or they can absolutely ruin it. It's a very fine line.

Dale's Pale Ale. All I taste is soap. I've read that some people percieve certain hops as tasting soapy, so I guess I'm one of those people for whatever hop they use.

Anything DFH other Palo Santo Marron.

The rest are just too cloying to enjoy.

Hate to say this, but I tried a J.W. Lees Harvest Barleywine. Could hardly finish it because I found I so cloyingly sweet.

I agree about Anchor. I don't like the hops or the malt.

I probably wouldn't like most of the best IPAs but that's just because I don't like IPAs.

Sam Adams in general. Everyone raves about them here and I can't stand 99% of there beers.

All Magic Hat: dissapointment after dissapointment.

Most DFH; the 120 comes to mind as especially terrible.

Every New Belgium except 1554. I really like that one.

Yuengling. While it isn't top of the line, so many people talk it up on a consistent basis. I find this absurd. It's not good at all!
