So lately I have been trying just about every brand and style I can find locally. Most are decent, some are great, some are not for me.

What kind of beers have you found that you simply can not drink?
Like a lot of folks I do not care for BMC, but I have also found that I really do not care for the belgian witbiers I have had (blue moon, sam adams white ale...etc.) Something tells me there is a witbier out there I would enjoy, but I haven't found it yet.
What about your personal tastes?
Anything you can not bring yourself to drink?

I personally will try them all. I will not pay out of my pocket for a German wheat beer but I'll try one off a keg at a party.

Not a huge fan of Barley wines.

Other than that bring them on.

Of the BMC, I really can't stomach the Bud or Bud Light. Water is a better choice.

Oddly, I enjoy Killieans Red, but every time I drink it, I get a horrible headache within the hour.

I do not like any kind of bud. I also can't do wheat beers.

I dislike wheat beers and fruit beers. I like a stout now and then, but not too many in a row. I don't like sour beers. That's about it, I think!

Barely Wine
Wit beers
German Hefeweizens
Anything Sour or super yeasty

That leaves me with a bunch of delicious Ales to choose from. I love Stouts, Porters, IPAs, APAs, American Wheat, etc

Things with too high a percentage of wheat cause some sort of sourness/nausea in the back of my throat. I don't mind a small amount in the grainbill, like in some belgian tripels, but if there is too much then it's over for me..

So now Hefes or other wheats...

Haven't run across anything I can't drink, but things I wouldn't pay for: sours, big Belgians, any fruit beer except blueberry wheats and raspberry stouts, abbey ales. Other than RIS, I'm not a fan of big beers.
