True story.

My vote also goes to summer shandy. So bad.

I second this one. My god that is an awful beer. It literally tastes like it was dry hopped with fruity pepples.

I tried a flight of beers from the local brew pub in Anaconda, Montana a while back. Their theme was fruit, every beer had peaches or apricots or something in it. I didn't enjoy the flight at all, but as a former salesman I feel compelled to buy after taking up someone's time. So I bought a growler of one of their beers anyway. Needless to say that I didn't enjoy is anymore once I got it home.

Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy- tasted like Pledge furniture polish
Rivertown Pestilence- smelled like puke... tasted like puke
Rivertown War- way over smoked. Tasted like chewing on a cigar
Sam Adams Triple Bock- tasted like soy sauce
My worst, and couldn't finish beer, was Leinenkugel Berry Weiss. It tasted like Fruity Pebbles soaked in the mash. WAY too sweet and a fake berry flavor.

I'm not sure it counts as a "craft" brew but Pyramid Ales are definitely commercial nowadays. Anyway, I had a Pyramid IPA at a friends party and I've got to say it was pretty bad. I never buy Pyramid beer as I don't expect much from them, but last nights brew was definitely a C-.

I really like dogfish beers although the 90 minute ipa is a little over the top. I even drank the midas touch. But Tweason'ale has to be the most god awfull stuff they have ever made. It taste like someone drank a bottle of boones farm and the puked it right into my bottle. I mean seriously dont they taste it before sending it out?

DFH raisin D'etre (sp) absolutely terrible. Matter of fact I don't like much DFH. I know I am alone with that though.

I live in Milton and a lot of their stuff is a miss. Although I have my staples I always return to.

Dfh 60 minute is pretty good. I think a lot of beers have too much going on flavor wise. A lot of different flavors with no single one dominating and they end up clashing.

I had a 3 Floyd's beer @ the oakpark micro brew and food review. They said it was an India Brown Ale and it tasted like a hopped up tobler orange.
