    I've decided that Rogue is the Prometheus of beers.

    Generally worthy of the criticism leveled against it, but not nearly as bad as the criticism would have you believe.

    Always one of the first to be mentioned in any discussion about a bad/terrible beer (movie).

    I can assure you there is no chance to defeat argentine Quilmes Crystal, it is something like a weird blend of an ancient elephant piss with a soft touch of a diabetic skunk vagina floyd.

    Wild Blue. A posmodern form of torture, very well performed by a macro. Horrid fruit beer, the Plan 9 from Outer Space of beers.

    Find a Quebec BA and hunt down a couple bottles of El Lapino. You will never forget it!

    The worst beer in the world for a "tasting" is one you actually like to drink a lot of.

    I have brought both Mama Mia! Pizza Beer and Big Sky Kriek to tastings. Brown bagged them both to avoid giving them away too.

    Victory Wild Devil. Wild ale aged with dirty sweat socks and moldy skid marked underwear. Fucking nasty.

    Fire Island Sea Salt Ale. Ill give you a moment to figure out why a salty ale from the gay mecca of the world will raise an eyebrow or two. Youll have the win in no time!

    To seriously answer the question, La Folie. (Or anything super sour). For tasting purposes it will ruin every other beer after that because the sour will stick around for hours. I use La Folie as an example because I had it before a Big Bad Baptist at a tasting, and you would swear the BBB was infected.

    As far as a joking "worst beer" competition, I truly despised Green Flash Friendship Brew. BUT, I would drink it again if I was getting a Cantillion out of it.

    I would imagine anything hopped heavily with citra could ruin a tasting. After drinking a couple of pints of krbc citra clonehomebrew I moved to a myrcenary... that was the first time myrcenary has ever tasted like garlic, tomatoes, and stewed cabbage to me.

    Do not EVER mention that goddamn putrid devil beer again! Their brewery burnt down and I hope that vile, piss-producing latrine stays that way.

    The worst beer I ever had was JW Lee's Harvest in Lagavulin casks:
    http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/178/25061

    I love lagavulin, so purchased this beer because of that. Tastes like someone pissed on a burnt log and the filtered rain water through it. It had chunks floating.

    Ironically this beer has decent reviews, maybe I got a bad bottle.

    Magic Hat HiCu would be my vote. Ice-cold it was odd, but bareable, but once it warmed up a just few degrees it was sickening IMO. In almost a decade of drinking craft beer I've only had 2-3 drain pours and it was one of them. (and I'm not a Magic Hat hater either).

    I haven't had SA Triple Bock, but judging by the amusing reviews it's sounds very "promising."

    No yo
    No you didn't the stuff is absolutely vile, any resembelence to Lagavulin is purely accidental. I took two sips and drain poured it. Taking that 2nd sip took all I had in me, should have spit out the first . Should be illegal to sell
