I had a bomber of something called The Physic from a liquor store in CO. The head looked like dish soap bubbles, and when you tried a sip, it actually tasted like soap. Guess they couldn't get a real head and tried to fake it with Dawn.

Wow....thinking about bad beer... I'm old so I remember many...but all time worst had to be a beer I drank in Pottstown PA. It came in a paper milk carton, quart size.... Wow ... I drank it forty some odd years ago.... I think it may have been called "Sunshine beer"..... And I still remember how bad it was.... They told me the brewery closed down when their horse died. But I drank it .... Only beer I could not drink was Watney's Stingo..... I like Malta and could not drink Stingo.... But "Sunshine" was before I began to make my own and had no standards, "Stingo" was after...

I kind of like the idea of getting served a beer in a paper carton... too bad it sucked.

Mine was a shiner, I think it was called red ruby or something like that - dumped the other 5 bottles, couldn't even force one more down.

Stone vertical epic 11 was up there for me. Base beer was great, but once that pepper taste hit my palate, I almost vomited. I tried to fight through but couldn't do it

I didn't think it was that bad. Previous incarnations were definitely better, but it wasn't like this was dump-worthy or anything. I'm thinking if I'd cellared it the pepper taste would mellow a bit.

Hub city amber ale. I had it twice. first time it was infected so it was like rotten yogurt and the second time (2 months later) it was.... you guessed it infected! come on guys get your stuff together. It was so bad that i even emailed the company just to give them a heads up.

Löwenbräu for sure. We called it the 8 packs 9th beer in high school. You'd get an 8 pack of Keiths, and 1 tallboy of Löwenbräu to drink when the 8 pack was gone. There was no way you could drink that before you had 8 other beer in you.

It had an okay taste on your first sip, and okay when you swallow, then the aftertaste hits, and it was like if you put some water in an ashtray, and then put some wet ash in your mouth. Pure ashtray.
