    It's probably not listed because many of us are not dumb enough to try it.

    (Just a quick joke, I couldn't resist. No offense I hope)

    Yeah, I agree, Bud lite just taste plain BAD. Coor's Lite taste like "Bad" that's been watered down. Frankly, I always choose water over those 2 abominations.

    Pennsylvania Style Ice!!!! On the craft beer side, I will never drink Sierra Nevada Bigfoot or Victory Old Horizontal again.

    SA Infinium. Nothing to celebrate here. Buy some real champagne.

    Stella artois. Rather drink a Pabst than this smear.

    Shipyard. As a whole. But the Blueberry is especially offensive.

    First thing that comes to mind is Southern Tier Creme Brulee.

    It was good, but very cloying. Maybe I'd split a bottle with a couple of friends as a dessert beer, but, damn, it's hard to finish a bomber of that stuff alone.

    I like clamato juice in general, having grown up on the water, so it's a fun beer to get for morning fishing.
    but, yes, it's definitely an acquired (bad) taste and fun to get people to try who have never tasted it before.
    good for disc golf, too.

    I stick it out with most every beer, even the lightest of adjunct lagers.

    But I've stopped trying new Black IPAs because apparently I am a huge wuss. I tried Sublimely Self-Righteous and Yakima Glory but I just can't deal.

    Besides the obvious BCM stuff, Southern Tier's Creme Brulee Stout. Just so artificial tasting and sickly sweet. I got four ounces into it and dumped the bottle. I've drain poured a decent amount of beers but none that left an actively off-putting taste in mouth like that one.

    Not sure where you get your ST but they aren't pricey at all......6-8 bucks for a bomber and for their great quality is just about fine.

    I never thought an IPA could give me the same heartburn as a lambic but this lemon bomb did the trick.

    21st Amendment, Hell or High Water Melon..
    But I'm a never say never guy too...I had Phin and Matt's from ST and thought it was the worst ever...tried it again 2 years later b/c I thought there was no way it could be as bad and it was better...may have been bad lines at the pub.

    Agree with a lot of the beers I've read here, but the one I'm not seeing is Widmer Brothers Citra Blonde. That cat urine finish it has isn't for me.

    Funny, I've had a lot of these, and I think DFH is also getting the short end of the stick. There's some definite dislike for sweeter beers on this site, but I enjoy a lot of them. To each their own palates though! Mine would be a rauchbier (can't remember what brand) that I had last month. My friends also had some RR that we could have tried, but they really wanted the rauchbier and raved about it. All I could taste was liquid smoke with a hint of burnt meat. I tried to finish it to be polite, but even my six ounce pour was too much. Apparently it was one of the best in its style, which doesn't get me too excited to try any others. At least I didn't pay for it...

    My first drain pour was last night. I generally can muster through a beer but this I could not. Shiner Black Lager. I don't get it. It just tasted like a moldy lager.

    I agree with everyone that posted Dogfish Head Tweasonale. That is the worst beer I've ever had. Usually enjoy all the other Dogfish Head.

    Friendship Brew. Yeesh.

    Green Flash, I like you guys, and I'm a-ok with St. Feuillen, but if I wanted to drink cherry cough syrup mixed with band-aids again, I'd just raid my medicine cabinet and cut out the middle man.

    Maisel's Weisse Hefeweizen. Tasted so damn sour. Whenever I pass by it in the stores it puts me off from drinking a hefeweizen.
