RedHook Eisbock I have to add to this list. Just terrible. Myself and the drunks at the bar I was working could not finish free pints of it.

Probably why they were free? haha. I just thought of a rather amusing episode regarding this. About 2 months ago my wife & I strolled into the beer cooler at Giant Eagle,& came upon HB "original" in bottles from Munchen. Cool we thought! WROOONG! We got home,& that evening broke out 2 bottles & some beer glasses. Gak! Talk about skunk wizz. We even let our boys smell it so they'd know what we mean when referring to a beer as "skunked". I spent 9 bucks on that 6'r too. She then pipes in,looking at me,"note to self...don't buy imported beer in GREEN BOTTLES!" point taken fer sher...

Yeah, I was dumb enough to grab a 6 pack of Hofbrau Octoberfest after having some on tap. The other festbier I grabbed in green bottles (Paulaner?) was fine, but the Hofbrau seemed to have gone tanning and turned totally skunk.

Exact same experience with that brew. Although I bought a single bottle in a mix-and-match sixer so the loss was minimal. I've heard good reviews of that beer, so I'm gonna have to try it on tap before I make a judgment call.

Imper ale - Nero. It's italian, its filthy. It's supposed to be a stout but the head dissipates as if it were a Sprite and the whole damn thing smells and tastes like stout mixed with champagne. Horrible. Even worse, they wanted to charge $18/bottle for it. I picked it up for $5 out of a clearance bin and it wasn't even worth that. glad i learned a lesson

Have to agree with the hamms. Bought it because it was 8.29 a case. Didn't taste too bad (Before I knew better). Could not figure out for a few months what was causing my indigestion. Have not had any since.

Rhinelander is probably the worst tasting I have had...

sam adams cherry wheat = worse than mike's hard lemonade

I enjoy every other Sam Adams product for the most part, but cherry wheat is unspeakably bad.

That's why we dont speak of it. By speaking of it you have made it stronger. The evil grows.
