    Weyerbacher's Imperial Pumpkin
    I had this on tap and they gave me a small tulip glass. Thought to myself after tasting it that they were being cheap. After a few minutes, the abv really kicked in but I really thought it was like vodka kicking in. Though I doubt they added vodka to it, that was my impression.

    Anchor Christmas 2010 - Possibly the worst beer I ever tasted. I don't get the hype. It was like drinking a Bitters N' Soda. Just aweful!

    Anchor Christmas 2011 - The change the recipe every year so I figure I'd give it a try. Different from 2010, but still happened to become probably the second worst beer I ever tasted. My taste buds can handle quite a bit, but wtf!?

    Ithaca's Apricot Wheat. Dehydrated apricot flavor does not mesh well within a beer. At least my friend's wife liked it, so the rest of my bottles didn't go to waste. Respect beer, after all!

    Shipyard's Applehead...
    So vile that I will never drink anything brewed by them again.

    Don't recall the name, but the Deschutes x Hair of the Dog Collab got drain poured about 4 sips into my 6 oz pour..

    Also I don't think I have ever bought a single Mikkeller for a second time... Fun label art, interesting concepts, but more often than not mediocre execution. Not nearly worth the prices they charge.

    Lastly, ever Goose Island I have had thus far. Granted I havent had Lolita, Juliet, King Henry or even BCBS, but those I have uncorked (Matilda, Pere Jacques, Pepe Nero to name a few) have been swilled begrudgingly, if not drain poured.

    I am very close to Shutting out Pumkin beers all together also.
    One tasting of Pumking every year wouldn't kill me though.
    All others, can stay on the shelves IMO.

    Yeah, just the name Seabass alone would keep me away.

    I'm a fan of Nosferatu, but then I like grapefruit juice. If you think Nosferatu's bad, then avoid Nugget Nectar that's an even bigger grapefruit.

    Most certainly agree! Horrific. Even more annoying given how great their regular IRS is.

    Sometimes I go into ghetto brews, my formative experiences with beer being in the malt liquor category. A few I even still like after having discovered the world of craft brew. But...

    Once I ended up getting a tallcan of Camo Black Ice. I am 110% confident that I will never never never NEVER even if you put a goddamn 44 magnum to my head, cocked the hammer, handed me a can of Black Ice & said "drink it or I pull the trigger" drink that shit EVER again! I'd rather be a dead man.

    Not for nuthin here but I stayed away from pumpkin beers all together this year
    I did try Long Trail only because it was new this year and I had Weyerbacher Imp b/c it is one of my favs other wise I just avoided them like the plague !
    Just a bad scene from last years tasting ... But really this whole pumpkin thing has gotten WAY outta hand !

    I agree Shogo. I always make sure to have plenty of Old Stock in the cellar. The perfect sipper once cold weather sets in. In my opinion, it is the standard that all American-brewed old ales should be judged by.

    I'll just say I had a bad experience with their blackout stout; every other brew from them that I've tried I simply haven't liked for whatever reason.

    GOLD MINER LAGER sold at Whole Foods for $3.99 / sixer [if I remember the price correctly].

    Certainly, Whole Foods would not carry any item that did not meet their lofty standards..?
    This stuff didn't just taste bad, or just a little bit "off", it tasted like an industrial accident had occurred that went unreported.
