    I love Bell's but their Oarsman was absolutely terrible! Like drinking sour thick lemon water

    Miller Lite doesn't have enough taste to be "nasty" or "disgusting".

    Trader Joe's Boatswain Double IPA - pretty sure this beer is a practical joke by the brewers. At least it was only $3. Drain poured after 2 sips, which was one sip too many.

    My BIL said the same thing. My reply, I wouldn't drink it if naked supermodels fed it to me straight from their mouth.
    That is one crappy beer. There is also something else, like ass kicker ale, or jackass ale. Also horrible.

    As many have already stated Voodoo and Creme Brulee from Southern Tier. Both I finished but it was a labor to get those beers down.

    Absolute worst has to be Bell's Oarsman Ale. What swill. Guiness Stout is ultra bitter. Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin and Saranac Pumpkin are the worst pumpkins. In fact most Saranac beers are pretty awful.

    Craftbrewlvr Initiate (127) Jan 3, 2011 Pennsylvania

    Agree totally. ST beers are some of the best beers out there. Over the top on flavor.

    Anything I've drained poured and given a 2.0 and under:
    Wells Banana Bread Beer
    Trafalgar Maple Bock
    Slavutych Pivo
    Bud Light
    Samuel Smith Organic Raspberry Fruit Beer
    Rosée D'hibiscus
    New Grist Sorghum Beer
    Hitachino Nest Real Ginger Brew
    Cannery Brewing Blackberry Porter

    Some are just bad beers overall while others just weren't my taste. I find I've very picky with fruit/spice beers. I either love it or hate it.

    Going to have to echo the sentiment of a few others on here, Pumpking from ST was just horrid. Too bad as well since I was really looking forward to this one. More for the people who enjoy it I suppose.

    Several beers on my list are beers other people love but I hate them.

    Troegs Mad Elf - it basically tasted like band-aids and pennies.

    Youngs Double Chocolate Stout - just has this artificial chemical kind of taste to it.

    JW Lees - tried several vintages and barrels and it always has an underlying potato taste to me.

    I too had a bad experience with Mad Elf last year. But... while it was very off putting, I think I'll try a bottle again this year. I'm just glad I didn't spring for that huge bottle of the stuff after I finally got a taste of it.

    Shipyards smashed pumpkin, I just didn't enjoy it at all. I recently had a beer from Saint Somewhere called Pays Du Soliel that wasn't for me either, but it might have been a bit flat or something

    I've only scratched the surface of craft, probably about 50 beers on my tick list, but the only one I had trouble finishing was Brooklyn Brown Ale. Sipped about a third then chugged the rest just to get it over with.

    In it's defense, the bottle shop had a lot of old beers on the shelf, so I'm not sure how old it was. They had about a case worth of Nugget Nectar on the shelf in October.

    Climax IPA. managed to bull through the whole sixer but was the least satisfying IPA I have ever had. Not one of Jersey's better brews.

    Really haven't had anything from White Birch I find worth buying again- just nothing that blew me away, and I'm all good with anything with the words "Shipyard" and "Pumpkin-anything" in it.

    I still miss Ballantines IPA-- I wonder what that spicy hop was? Ahead of it's time, or 50 years behind.

    Try NG Enigma, you might be pleasantly surprised. For a sour it's really good. Hope your DDay was a blast...

    Totally agree with this, Enigma is a gem. Funny too, cuz I was just going to come in here and post Oude Tart by The Bruery... sours are not my thing I guess, thought it tasted like sour shoe leather.
