    They're not the worst beers obviously but the beers that I've tried and liked the least were 2 really popular ones. I couldn't stand Russian River Temptation, it tasted like a strong and cheap white wine , and the other was Gulden Draak, which I just thought was awful. Both are made very well, I just did not like the taste of either.

    The worst beer ever made in my opinion is Bud Light Lime. Just disgusting!

    A New Zealand brew (I shan't name it because I am a strong admirer of New Zealand culture, people, and the New Zealand All Blacks) I drank because it was the main offering at an informal get together set up by one of the more prominent professors in the political science department at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, who favored it, even though he was an immigrant from Germany -- I'm surprised I never hurled, given that it smelled and tasted like formaldehyde -- yuck!!!!

    Swiss Lowenbrau. Drank it on a fake id many years go and remember hating it. Who knows, maybe I'd like it now that I'm all grown up. But more recently, I'd have to say Miller 64, Bud Select or Michelob Ultra. All those "Diet" beers suck.

    Horny Goat Wiscon-Zin IIPA. Citra hopped IIPA with Zinfandel grape juice added prior to fermentation. It would have been very good without the horrible wine flavor

    Really? I've got one of these bad boys in my cellar right now, I love me some Dirty Bastard so I'm unsure how I could not like Backwoods. What didn't you like about it? Do you normally enjoy Dirty Bastard?

    Rogue voodoo, so very awful. I was in Newport at their bay front bar and tried it and gave it back to them. They were pissed and said I didn't understand the flavor, haha. Stupid marketing gimmick

    Founder's Curmudgeon. I'm not sure if it was the beer or the old ale style that I hated. Have not tried any other old ales, as Curmudgeon turned me off to the style. Tasted like I was drinking licorice or shitty liquor.

    I've reviewed both. I love Dirty Bastard and other Scotch ales. However, the bourbon taste is BB is overwhelming, so much so that I couldn't really taste the ale. It's almost like a watered-down bourbon.

    I have also had that Desperados french beer. Ive had beers like Agave Maria that were tequila barrel aged and they were pretty good, but this just tasted like a corona and tequila mixed together

    Harpoon winter warmer.

    I remember thinking "This tastes like Shipyard Pumpkinhead, but worse". The only time I remember buying a beer at a bar and not finishing it.

    BEAST aka Milwaukee's Best and (Chinese) Snowflake beer. Both millerSAB family beers that should have never been produced and the creators need to be found and shot.

    I was not sure what I would say to this question. But I agree with an earlier response - Cave Creek Chili Beer. This was a bad idea executed poorly. Could not finish it. Fortunately part of a mixed six-pack so I was only out a buck.

    I hated southern tier's warlock. Granted I'm not a "pumpkin" beer kind of guy, but that taste reminded me of how a kindergarten classroom's guinea pig cage smells. I just plain abhorred that beer. My, and my girlfriend's, first ever drain pours. I'm very hesitant to try pumking as a result as so many people are saying it tastes very similar. But, again, not a pumpkin beer guy in the least.

    The worst beer I have had, if you would have asked me before last week I would have said Miller High Life, but I have recently tried Shock Top's Honey Bourbon Wheat, I don't even know how this beer came into existence.

    You guys who complain about crap lagers and malt liquors-- smack your lips over some "gluten free" beer-like beverages and you'll have something to brag about. For me the worst in a very mangy litter was Glutenator from the otherwise reliable Epic Brewing.

    Hands down, 559 IPA from W Brewing. Tasted like burned plastic. Pretty much the consensus for anyone with the misfortune to try it.
