Raison D'Etra. God it took all I had to choke down all 6 of em. I would rather drink BL lime than that again.

The Noble Pils was surprisingly good. I really liked that one.


There are so many bad beers out there, macro and micro. Not sure if I could really pick the "worst", but I'll leave a couple here.

Macro: Natural Light. I think this is the only beer I have ever turned down upon someone offering one to me for free.

Micro: I think the brewery went under, but there was a truly terrible beer called Texas Tornado. I'm not sure what style of beer it was supposed to be, but it was cloudy and tasted infected.

I think there's a lot "craft" breweries don't really live up to the name. Too many quality issues that are either missed or ignored.

Your urine probably has more hop aroma than Steel Reserve.

I'd have to agree on OE 800 that we used to drink in college. Why did we drink it? It was stronger than anything else we could buy then so we gutted out the taste and drank them as fast as we could.
Now that I'm a beer snob, the worst recently that I've had was a Peaks Brewing (Port Angeles, WA) IPA a couple years ago. They've since made some changes and it is now drinkable.

Leinenkugel's Berry Weisse. If I wanted Koolaide added to my beer I'd do it myself. Seriously this stuff was just foul. A close second would be Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. What I don't get, is that I like plenty of other fruit beers (mainly sour though) but these two are just terrible.

This is an interesting topic. My two points I would judge by are: 1) is it fresh (or aged) and 2)is it something I would want to drink anyway. I can buy many different kinds of beer from around the world locally - but, I don't know how long they have beem around. If I see a 2008 fresh harvest beer on the shelf it has obviously been setting. I also don't like a lot of stuff in my beer like cherries, lime etc..
With that said I had some fresh 90 minute Dogfish Head IIPA that I could barely put half a glass down before I had to chuck it. Now 2 years later I can drink the whole bottle.
I was in a pub where they had Magic Hat #9 on tap. I had heard about it but none of the specifics. So when I took a swig I tasted a hint of Apricot. This to me was a refreshing summer beer - but, I probably would not have tried if I knew there was apricot in it.

Hooker Watermelon Ale. Love the brewery but this tastes like someone put a watermelon jollyrancher in a bottle of coors light. My wife's girlfriends love it though...

Back in college, my roommate brought home 3 cases of something called "Phat Boyz" that only came in 40 ounce bottles and it was a high gravity malt liquor at around 7.9% ABV. I think he got them for .79 cents a bottle. Horrible beer.

But it got you tanked. Very few beers that come in 40 oz bottles are meant to be savored.
