    My brother-in-law and I were choosing some singles and filling some growlers for a vacation week. Last year, he bought me a bottle of Primo without trying it himself. So he says "hey, what about this one?"

    Just walk away, and try not to trip while doing so.

    Odd Notion - American Sour Ale (Winter 2009) - Magic Hat Brewing Company

    I remember cracking this one back on Xmas day that year. I do believe this was first intentional "sour beer." This was BEYOND horrible. The aroma was reminiscent of rotten gym socks, and in true beer-geek form, I was like, "let's give it a go!" And then there was the taste- It was somewhere between vinegar and taco bell vomit. Instant drain pour.

    Thanks for the memory.. I just threw up in my mouth.

    Hands down Rogue Voodoo Maple Bacon...probably the only beer I felt I HAD to drain pour. I picked it up on sale for about 5 dollars so I didn't feel too bad.

    Sam Adams cranberry lambic . Two sips and off to the trash! Luckily it was part of their sampler pack so it was a little less painful.

    Wow some really good beers this list as well. HoHW? St Lam?

    Had a bells two hearted - must have been skunked I hope, one of the worst tastes ever. Pounded a glass of duet immediately after. Same time had a TNP from brewdog, not even a beer at that point but could not finish. 04 Vigarone was the sourest beer I have ever had, two of us cold not finish the bottle. Fantome is hit or miss - some perfect beers and some not so much.

    Mine is the 5th vote for SA Cranberry Lambic if anyone is keeping score. Same story, Got it in a sampler pack and could not choke down 6 oz. I saved the other bottle and gave it to a lady friend months later who was not much of a beer drinker and she spit it out after the first sip. Others then tried a sip and did the same thing. For those who think they had the worst beer, seek this one out and trade for it if you have to. You will not be disappointed.

    Biggs Stache, Surly Syx, Tiberian Inquisitor, Mamma Mia Pizza Beer, and Pink Killer.

    All of those get the "Buzz's Girlfriend" award for horrible beers.

    I think I just had it - Horny Goat Brownie Porter. I've gotten more pleasure from a peroxide rinse.

    Bud Light Platinum tried at Buffalo Wild Wings wings took a sip was like "YUCKKKKKKKKKKK" top shelf taste my ass! Also tried Keystone and bud light as my first beers at college they sucked! I wanted better beer so I wouldn't bitch about the taste so I switched to craft brews right away.

    Keep trying them because although I like that beer with some age, it is not a good example of a doppelbock.

    For me it was Serrano Pepper Ale from Saugatuck. Others rave about it, but my sample was 3 oz. too many...

    Dark Horse "Lambeak Wants Blood Orange." Absolutely repulsive. Tastes like ass and acetone. Had to hold my nose to choke it down.

    Saranac Caramel Porter is dreadful, and to think its a mainstay is rather puzzling. Dogfish Punkin, on second thought was the most vile of any type of beverage that I have tried. The word putrid comes to mind.

    Just got some Leinenkugel Hoppy Helles in a sampler this weekend. Awful. Going to use the rest of them to boil bratwurst.

    This is actually a three way tie, all three of these are the only three beers I've ever wanted to spit out.

    1. DFH Fort (I was told the year I had (2008) was the worst vintage)
    2. Surly Syx (So this is what rubbing alcohol tastes like)
    3. Sam Adams Triple Bock (MmmmMMmm soy sauce)

    Worst 3 include..

    Shipyard Pumpkinhead
    Bud Light Platinum
    Leinenkugels Lemon Berry Shandy

    I think the LLBS might be the worst. After I take a sip and a beer doesn't taste good, I give it at least 3 sips before I write it off completely. I poured LLBS down the drain after the first sip, I knew I just couldn't do another.

    I'm kind of surprised by all the BMC/AAL entries in this thread. I just don't see how they enough of a taste to be truly the "worst beer ever" unless you drank a 30 rack in one night at some point and start shaking every time you see it because of memories of the aftermath of that decision.

    For me the worst beer I ever had was a rauchbier I was totally unprepared for, Fire in the Ham. It is well rated here and put out by an amazing brewery (which I otherwise love) so I can see how some people might be into this but for me this did not work out. Way too smokey for me and had some other similar tastes going on that did not agree with my taste buds at all. Couldn't finish it and had a bad taste in my mouth for awhile afterwards. With apologies to the brewery but that is my honest opinion of this particular beer (I'd drink your 2nd Anniversary beer all day though if I could).

    #1 Rogue Maple Bacon Donut - Tasted like an ashtray
    #2 Abita Jockamo IPA- I believe that is Pawnee for " Battery Acid"
    #2B - Shiner Smokehaus Beer. OMG tasted like a burned shoe.lol
    #3 Wild Blue - Lesson learned last year.( 4 Hoptimum+ 2 New Belgium Rolle Bolle+ bomber of Stone IPA ( = The case of the drunken muchies.)
    4 Chalupas and 3 soft tacos later, I got into A sixer of Wild Blue. Drank two of them, and ended up regurgitating that nastiness. bad night....

    This weekend I had a Pacifico cerveza and could barely finish half of it. It was honestly the worst flavor I had ever drank.

    I loved Young's Oatmeal Stout and also miss having it around. The London Special was a tangy thing that modern hop lovers would appreciate.
