    Crystal springs drum and laughing dog's alpha dog both infected. Bad luck with mountain time zone beers of late.

    Southern Tier Warlock - tasted like medicinal cough syrup. I thought it was supposed to taste like pumpkin pie?

    It makes me really question if when I open Pumking this weekend if it's going in the sink also.

    I haaaaaaaated Warlock and I love pumpkin beers. He'll , I've got half a closet full of them waiting for fall (it may be a while in Dallas). I thought Pumking was ok. Really similar very fake taste but it worked better. I drain poured Warlock but got through Pumpking. Warlock was the biggest disappointment of the year.

    New Planet Gluten Free Pale Ale. My wife is trying a gluten free elimination type diet so we tried this and it was honestly the worst beer ever. We tried a few other gluten free offerings that were not so bad (not good either) but this one was god-awful.

    Pretty sure this Rhinelander Thumper IPA is heading for the drain. Should've known that $3.99 for a bomber was too good to be true...

    Still haven't done a drain pour, but I couldn't finish The Bruery's Autumn Maple. Bartender was nice enough to take it off my tab, though!

    Gonna have to kindly but strongly disagree with you here. I was drinking Sofie on draft this summer like it was my sole purpose in life. Just a fantastic, delicate beer crafted for utter refreshment.

    I dumped a draft of White Oak...It tasted like 2 buck chuck!

    Any pumpkin beer really. And I LOVE Pumpkin in anything else. Yes the almighty Pumpking was barely tolerable.

    I had a bottle of this. After 1 sip, I knew the purchase was a mistake. I didn't dump it, but will never buy it again.

    Is it sour or what don't you like about it? Does anyone know if Jolly Pumpkin makes anything that's not sour?

    It is a sour, and I enjoy sours, but this one just isn't that good. The first taste is nice and tart but then it quickly fades into a sort of gross funk that just isn't pleasant.

    the 2 wrap beers they brought in at work the other night were Shipyard's Pumpkin Ale and that saison from Magic Hat - tried them both and drain-poured them both about halfway through - then I had to drive home with the awful lingering taste of that crappy 'saison' in my mouth -

    I bought a mysterious beer while traveling, based on an adventurous whim. Some homebrew contest winner.

    Infection City, USA. Got about four sips down before I couldn't take it anymore.

    That was a tough one to put down- attempted to share a bottle with a buddy- he backed out after a few sips. Appreciate its uniqueness for sure, but to drink an entire bottle...not so much.

    My son was having a special game night with his friends the other day. Being the good dad that I am I offered to test taste any beer I had not tried before. Among the many special bottles he brought home was Relic Whiting American Lager. We were pretty excited about this, being a new, fairly local brewery, and the single experience we had with them at a festival was good.
    I tasted first and had all I could do to hold a straight face and not influence other's opinions (as well as not spit the beer all over the kitchen). After two others tried it and one said basically "no one intended this beer to taste like this".
    This was a bomber with no dating. DATE YOUR DAMN BEERS BREWERS. Obviously was infected or something. First drain pour in quite a long time.

    I did not drain pour my Green Bullet, but I think it was 80% of the beer I expected from a brewery I have grown to like.

    The only beer I've ever poured out was Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat...I drank about 1/3 of it and could not get past the overwhelming robetussin cough syrup flavor. The remaining 5 beers sat in my fridge for months as I tried to con my friends into drinking it by questioning their manhood and using other underhanded tactics. They eventually got drank because there are no beer sales on Sundays here....but not by me.

    Any chance of renaming this thread "Who Can Claim to Have Drain Poured the Highest Rated Beer?"

    We get it. Just because a beer scores 90+, doesn't mean it is worthy of your next level palate. I understand taste is subjective, and we don't all like the same stuff, but drain pours should be limited to infected bottles and the most extreme atrocities of the beer world.

    "I drained a Heady the other day, the hops get really confused after a week or so, and the malt was pretty grumpy. Luckily, I had a fresh PBR chaser." We all understand you're above the hype, and you piss irony.

    This! (and sincere contributions related to infections or confessions of a newbie excused). These threads are like a virus. Seems there's always a "drain pour" or "over-hyped" or "most disappointing" thread. I get that tastes differ. And there's different levels of experience. Because you didn't dig it doesn't mean the beer sucks. I was so hoping someone would "drainpour" one of those $2,000 bottles of HOD Dave. At least it would show commitment (plus the $ went to charity). A theme of the site for God's sake is "Respect Beer".

    I had Pipeworks End of Days maybe a month ago which was truly awful. It not only had the effervescence of a can of Coke, it also had a strong cola-like taste to it. I took about 3 sips and couldn't consume more than that. A friend, who I shared the bottle with, felt the same way. I'm sure it was an off batch or bottle but it was one of the most awful beers I ever had.

    I'll admit I've poured sours before, not that it was their fault. I learned I just don't like sours, or at least not any I've tried. People keep telling me they grow on you, all I can say is we'll see.
