Buffalo Bill's Orange Blossom Cream Ale
reminded me of the "orange drink" McDonald's sold in the 80's.
(do they still have that?)

Harpoon Winter Warmer. Had zero flavor. I had to dump four of the six pack I bought.

Had this once at a bar in a little town in Indiana after a wine festival... The wine was excellent, but this beer absolutely tasted awful (your description is spot on).

I thought at the time that it might have been because of all the wine, but now I see that it may genuinely just be bad. Haven't had the courage to try it since then, in any case.

I guess I am lucky to say that I haven't had to dump any commercial beer down the drain because it was undrinkable. Though I do have some stragglers of different beers here and there that I just don't want to drink.

I really have no taste for the delerium nocturnum and the dogfish head raison d^etra at the moment. I may drink them after I've had a few of other beers and don't have anything left.

One thing I'm noticing is a ton of preference, not as much on quality. Not a bad thing or a good thing, just an observation.

For me, my lowest grade at this point would have to go to Cricket Hill, as their commercial stuff tastes to me like my very first batch of homebrew, where among other things, I used very chlorinated tap water and failed miserably to get the temp down for pitching. Now, I haven't tried their stuff many times, and this could be a fluke, but I am not encouraged to try it again.

If there are any Cricket Hill employees here, I apologize for calling it out like that, but I guess if you're in business, you have to have thick skin.

Cismontane Brewing Company's "The Citizen", an attempt at a Cali Common. Clear fermentation problems in this one. This one wasn't preference, it was a downright flaw. Problem existed in two different bottles.

It could have been a batch issue, but it was terrible.

Hmm.. It's got a 91 on BeerAdvocate. I think you and your buddies are a bunch of sissies I'd have a delicious IPA and a pizza on you by now.
