It's for sure an aquired taste. Have you had other beers of that style?

My bottle shop had leinenkugel summer shandy for 2.99 a 6pk. I understand now why it was so cheap. Maybe it's just me but I could not drink this beer. I ended up drinking one and giving the rest way.

Climax Brewing Company, their IPA was horrible, I tried my best to drink it since I did pay for it, but I just couldn't and poured it down the drain. I bought it in a package store in south New Jersey. They are in Roselle Park NJ. It's the only brew of theirs that I saw, but after that I would be reluctant to try any of their other styles. It came in a 64 fl oz. growler which I kept to get something out of the deal.

PS: The worst ever, and always will be is Coors Light!

I was pretty excited to try Sun King's cream ale, because we normally don't get their beers in colorado, but they're apparently here during gabf week. But jeez, this beer has a smell that I can't describe. B.O. just doesn't quite work, but it's quite stinky (not sulfury) and unpleasant. Unfortunately (for me), it tastes just how it smells. I think it must have some funky hops giving it the aroma/flavor. I don't know what I'm going to do with the other three cans, but I'm sure as hell not drinking them. I barely made it through half of one tonight. I read some reviews of it on beer advocate, and several people described the smell/taste as metallic. I guess that's sort of what the beer is like. Unfortunately, there's really nothing else there to focus on.
