    Oddly I loved that beer even though every fiber of my being said 1. Don't buy that 2. Don't drink that 3. Who would make that. For some reason it all clicks with me and I really like it.

    Brought it to a party and I had to drink it myself. Guess I have odd taste.

    Recently has to be the 2014 Shipyard Prelude, tasted like cork taint and wet cardboard. I genuinely hate dumping beer down the drain, but after making it barely halfway through 4 bottles on 4 separate occasions I just chalked up the loss for the last two.

    Mikkeller Big Worse. I seriously hope it was a tainted bottle, but it was horrendous. I tried to choke down a couple sips, but ended up down the drain. From the BA, reviews, it looks like a lot of bad bottles out there.

    Worst to me is Bud Light of course was many years ago, but didn't like it from first sip... I tell people Bud Light is what comes out of me in the ceramic bowl after "filtering" a GOOD beer through my body and the nasty by-products is Bud Light... :slight_smile: Will never, ever drink that stuff...

    More recently... Pumpking Rum Barrel Aged beer... couldn't finish it... first time I had to do drain pour of craft beer...

    Some crap that had a pepper in it. It was over 15 years ago, so I can't remember the name, but it was the most awful thing I've ever had, not just beer.

    Not kidding! I love stouts and like pepper beers but this one just wasn't for me. I drank half of one and gave the other 5 cans away.

    A can of Miller Lite that warmer to more than ice-cold. Some beer is meant to be drank fast.

    The worst was Corona Light and Sleeman Clear...but I went in knowing what to expect. I think the worst one though that blindsided me was Wychwood Forest Fruits, or as I like to call in "The 10% real juice" juicebox of fruit beer

    I change my worst beer experience. You reminded me of the time I bought a Shock Top Apple after I ran a 5k. I thought it would be a nice treat. After the first sip I spit it out and drove myself to the pub to rectify that horrid mistake.

    WORST beer? Hard to say nowadays... however I did have a Pacifico a few months ago that left my mouth with the nastiest toilet water aftertaste and I couldn't get rid of it for two days.

    Had to drain pour a Blue Pants beer at a recent tasting. I tried my best to knock it back, but couldn't. After doing the drain pour I realized that the last beer I drain poured was also a nasty Blue Pants I had received as an extra in a trade. Poopy Pants might be a better name for that brewery.

    Probably not the worst I've had, but the first thing that comes to mind is the Miller High Life that I had a my Dad's on Christmas. I hadn't had one in years and really just wanted to check it in on Untappd. I was surprised how terrible it was. I used to drink MHL all the time, but man it was rough going down...

    Dogfish had come out with a cherry stout called Black and Red, don't know why I wanted to try it when I drained the Black and Blue I had.

    New Braunfels Wasser Weiss. Had this on tap last summer The Friendly Place in San Antonio. Slight tartness that was quickly overwhelmed by a strong chemical off-taste. Smelled like highly chlorinated powdered lemonade. Literally made me ill.

    At the time I tried this, there were no reviews for it on BA. Now there are a few recent reviews of a bottled version that say it's ok (although one review does note a detergent off taste). Maybe they've straightened it out, but the brew I had on tap was foul. Curious to hear if any BAs from Texas have tried it, and what they thought.

    Magic Hat no. 9 on tap at a restaurant. Over the top artificial fruit essence obscured whatever redeeming qualities may have been present in that beer. Sam Adams Cranberry Lambic and Cherry Wheat are contenders as well.

    Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat is still the only beer I just couldn't finish...the robetussin cough syrup flavor brought back wonderful childhood memories of being sick.

    Hopfenstark Boson De Higgs. A blend of Berlinner Weisse, Rauchbier, and Saison. Tasted like straight smoky vomit. Took one sip, drainpoured the rest.

    Icehouse Edge isn't much better. I drank it just so I could notch the malt liquor style on my stats. God-awful.

    I've never seen Edge around here, just regular Icehouse. Might have to seek it out, when I'm in one of my masochist phases.

    Yeah, I have to agree on Minhas. They really do make some crap. The Swiss amber is drinkable but that is about it. Lot's to be proud of in Wisco, but they don't make the list.

    Molsons Brador. Its been awhile since I gagged on it. We used to have a friend that would "smuggle" the "real" stuff over from Canada. I think it was slightly higher in alcohol. Very similar to. Colt 45 but sweeter. A real headache maker.

    Samuel Adams Cranberry Lambic. Had it years ago and I can still remember how horrible and "un-lambic" it was.
