I personally enjoy kale lol but not raw I saute it in olive oil and garlic. Which may be why I like it
The words "Martin House". That sour pickle beer was terrible. The hot pickle beer wasn't as gross, but it's a low bar to clear.
Agree, but my workaround is to pretend that the heat from the peppers is alcohol burn.
Try it - you'll be amazed.
Gotta be Enigma for me; that hop is an abomination lol.
I love Summit hops. Especially in combination with Citra and/or Amarillo.
Yipes. To me they taste like salty onions and smell like BO.
Worse than Michelob Ultra? Remembering what the original Mic tasted way back when, that moniker is a case of pissing in your own soup-or beer.
Hmmm. Is 'cat piss' another way to describe your taste experience? I've seen that descriptor applied to Summit and Mosiac (and I've experienced it) but I recall reading somewhere that that smell/taste characteristic depends on how fresh the hops are when the brewer uses them. (Or maybe it was how old the hops are when the hop grower gets tham processed/dried.)
I really hate it when a beer has onion elements to it. Is there a hop in general that might give off that taste, or is it just bad brewing?
At least in my case, the only hop that ever has a cat pee note is simcoe. That's only in really specific beers and it even seems to vary from batch to batch, though. Some beers that feature simcoe (like Pliny) never have that flavor.
With summit, it basically always has that same salty onions note. I still remember trying the original Gubna from OB (100% summit) and realizing we were about to pour 5 of them out. TRVE's original Nazareth and Renegade E3 were similarly all-summit and both tasted like they were designed to kill vampires. Feels like summit has fallen out of favor lately, though. All of the local places that used to use it seem to have either dropped it completely, or made it small part of a blend.
Blasphemy. How long did you think that response would take?
Bud Light Next 0.
0 body. I have not, nor will try it, but with 0 carbs, it can't be good.
Any beer with groceries in it is another pass, unless a fruit Lambic.
Session IPA's. Just call them a Pale Ale already!
Contains Dill Pickle Juice or Beets.
I was baiting @TheIPAHunter but he's too mellow for that. Love u brother
I’m not a big fan of coconut in beer period.
The worst sounding beer to me was Brown Note by Against the Grain, I couldn’t get past the can art to even try it. I’m gagging now thinking about it.
Yeah I was just playing along for fun.
I guess I can honestly say I've never had Summit hops because I've never experienced either of those (off-putting in beer) characters!
Over use of citra is this cat piss to me
Well, you know what? I think I am mixing up Summit with Simcoe. Onions and BO? I can't say that I've ever experienced that. Maybe I don't run across Summit hops very often.
It's actually a pretty good beer.
Brown note sounds pretty…crappy.
A lemongrass saison or wild ale seems like it would be really good. Make it around 4% even better. Could even add ginger.
Most of the beers I drink are pretty quiet, so it's hard to say.
Pickes, oysters, peanut butter, Dragon Fruit.
Nut Brown Ale from Alesmith
Never would i buy that shit..abv makes it worse
It didn't strike me until just now, but the mean age of BA members is showing in this thread since no one has mentioned a certain Young's label...
It *is* retired, but still...
Ah, that's some dirty trick you're playing, there, steveh - don't dick around, just tell us!
There used to be a "secret" live show trading group for Richard Thompson fans called Spotted Dick, after the British dessert. ("Secret" 'cause he didn't approve back in those lower tech days).
Although "Sponge Pudding" doesn't sound better, does it? Sounds slightly pornographic...
This era is a mean age for everyone!
(Oh, wait - wrong definition).
No, you got it right.
The can thing is whatever but more important what do the young nieces and nephews think of the beer?
I knew that googling “spotted dick” was a risky game, but it took me down an educational adventure of traditional English cuisine. I must say, the Brits have some quirky names for the culinary dishes, and I dig it!
I don’t like that the title was changed to “Worst Sounding Beers.” Imho, it makes it sound like I’m thinking of actual beers, and not one’s own idea of what would be the worst to them.
That one was pretty Mild compared to what we see today.
The older nieces/nephew (high school / college) avoid gluten, so not into beer. They like seltzer and spirits, but that generation doesn't party / overindulge like my generation.
For the younger ones via my youngest brother, I gave the oldest a sip of Pliny the Elder and he thought it was "spicy", but was glad to have tried it. The youngest with a sweet tooth liked his sip of a haze bomb from Beer Zombies, had to cut him off before he drank all of it. I am hopeful for their future, and perhaps the gluten free preference will pass once they move out of home (their Father/My Brother drinks beer, and also eats gluten away from home).
Isn't that physically (medically?) detrimental if you don't have (professionally diagnosed) gluten intolerance?
Graham cracker marshmallow pastry stout
Yes, I'll admit I've tried it so no one can say I won't know until I try it.
No IPA I've ever had in my life has been improved by the addition of fruit.
Grapefruit, peach, blood orange, hell Lazy Dog has a Melvin contract brewed hazy IPA with huckleberry, none of it.
Not a single one has made me go "You know what, this beer is great and would be merely mediocre without [insert fruit here]."
Pastry stouts should come with some type of warning for sugar comas.
