I will always be able to appreciate two things in my life.... a pretty face and a good beer. Having said that I have in my day drank some of the worse swill ever invented by man. I prefer the imports myself... Sam Adams is great though for a mass produced domestic.... but I like the Bass/Corona/Harp/Warstiener/Sleemans type of mix.... there are of course others.. but I dont want to distarct from the topic.

I really enjoy a lot of the micro brews too....

Of the low end beers I actually find that I like Schlitz and Pabst the best, Rolling Rock isnt too bad.. kind of watery but.... at least I dont get a headache when I smell the bottle. I prefer Miller over Budweiser when it comes to the more popular domestics .... but like I said I prefer the imorts overall or the better domestics.. but the absolute worst beer I have ever tasted is actually a tie between Rheingold and Meister Brau... GAAAK!!!

When I was a kid Rheingold had this catchy tune.... "My beer is Rheingold the dry beer.... think of Rheingold whenever you buy beer.... It's not bitter it's not sweet .. It's the dry flavored treat..... Wont you try extra dry Rheingold beer!!!" They went out of busuiness for a spell but they came back a few years ago... so one night my buddy and I were in a bodega (I was still in the Bronx then... ) and I said "Hey man look!! Rheingold!! Lets give it a shot..." Man that stuff was so bad I couldnt finish it.... I used to go with the 50 cents a can domestic when money was tight.... npow I prefer to just drink juice when it gets that bad..... LMAO.

What about you? Whats the worst pi$$ water beer you ever drank?

Also a local brewery in Devizes knocks out some wee called 6X and it is like drinking farts.

Budweiser, Coors, anything by Labatt or Molson. They all taste about as good as dog pee.

I drink Belgian, beer from the land of beer. I LOOOOVE Hoegaarden Witbier. The german beers we get here are pretty good too.

Oddly enough, I dont like Beck's or Stella Artois all that much.

I used to think Meister Brau was the worst, but the absolute worst is Cranberry Lambac from Sam Adams.

They put it in their Holiday pack every year and I have NO idea WHY. WHY, dear GOD, WHY?!? Imagine beer mixed with a no-name "cheery flavored" cough syrup that is 5 years past its expiration date.

It is such a horrible abomination, such an abortion of a brewing perversion that the man you created it should be locked in trunk with the guy who keeps putting it into distribution and the two of them should be dropped into the ocean chained to large boulder.

If I did not know better, I would say Al Queda brewed the stuff in an attempt to destroy all of western civilization.

As far as we are talking Big Big Breweries (Miller, Coors, Bud etc...) I agree.
When I went to the US I was surprised by the number of local small brewerie that make excellent beers.
The only american beer that I can find easily here (beside piss-Bud), is Samuel Adams Boston Lager which is very nice.
I have worked at the local beer festival for eight years now, I 'm always at the New World Bar (Québec and US), and we have some excellent American beers: Anchor Brewery (San Francisco), Samuel Adams, New Belgium etc...

Brazilian SKOL is quite a good beer.
Brahma is the worst, competing with Antarctica.
When I can came across the imported Heineken I feel happy.
The Italian Peroni I can recall was "bleah"...
Now I remember of the SAPPORO, a Japanese beer that was really tasteful. Big silver colored cans of unusual shape.
The best beer I ever drank was Zlatorog, this is a beer brewed in Slovenia, and exported world wide under the translated name of "Goldhorn". Really the best one IMHO. If I recall correctly, it won for many years the prize of "best beer in the World". Shame it is not imported here in Brazil where I'm living now.

Rootbeer!

I was several years ago on Hawaii. We (my brother, his family and me) where eating a Pizza and wanted to drink a good beer, so we orderd rootbeer. Let me tell you that the taste was a bit of suprice for us. In the german Wikipedia someone wrote: The Rootbeer has a tast similar to 'Odol mouthwash'. Well, I dont remeber if it has exectly the same tast but it a nice comparison.

Lone Star from the US is bad. It tastes like processed crotch.

And West End Draught from my home-town in SA. It's so horrible. Expletives fail me.

These days I've become rather fond of Korean sou-jou (wifey's influence) kind of a cold sake. Bloody marvelous, once you develop a taste for it.

Ind Coope sold some fairly dodgy sauce, like Double Diamond and tinned Long Life. But today we have our own version of Stella in the U.K. This liquid chemistry set is gwibble and is not as it should be. It is also well known as Wife Beater for good reason. Though most of the people who drink it aren't old enough to get married.

Oh good lord, Sou-Jou. I got in sooo much trouble while under the influence of it while in Korea. Let me put it this way. A Corporal in the United States Marine Corps is NOT supposed to greet a Lieutenant Colonel by Calling him his "Fat little buddy Mike" and then rendering a French Foreign legion style kiss to the cheek.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

But the worst Beer I ever had was Red Horse in the Phillipines. "Now with even more Formaldyhyde!" San Miguel was the prefered drink.

Worst offenders;

Carling's Black Label- USA (you know its bad when its $4 for a case!)

But the all time winner for nastiest swill ever bottled;

Polynesian Maid- USA (I think) Its made with sugar cane, and has an "interesting" green tint. Absolutely the most VILE bottle of snake pi$$ you would ever have the misfortune to try.

Root beer in the US and Canada is not a beer but a soft drink more like coke or fanta. At least the root beer I know. As I kid I liked A&W root beer but now meh.

Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to visit many countries (and their beers), but from my own limited experience, it would have to be Holy Moses Ale, from a small brewer in the USA side of the great lakes region. It does indeed have a picture of Moses parting the Red Sea, and yes, the first thing out of my mouth (after the beer itself) was "holy Moses this stuff is &*^%".

They used to sell this stuff around here called "Beer". That was all it said on the case. "Beer". It came in plain white half cases (12 bottles) which could be had for $2.50 (1980 price). We called it "generic beer" for want of a better name. Anyway, it gave you a nasty headache and it was very weak, 2% if I remember right. You had to drink an entire six pack to get a buzz. When we were rich (meaning payday) we would buy Old Milwaukie or Schlitz Malt Liquor.

The worst beer I tasted I made my self. My father makes quite nice beer (my wife likes it). My own first (and last) attempt turned out decidedly bad. First I used double the recommended dosage of sugar. Then I forgot the whole thing for a year. Upon spring cleaning (the next spring, mind you!), I was broke and found it was marginally drinkable. So I bottled it and drank it instead of siphoning it down the drain.

It tasted more like grain whine than beer if you can imagine such a thing, and was dead flat with a metallic after taste. A one-and-a-half litre bottle would be enough for me, even in my student day, and the hangovers were of legendary proportions.

Good old Gordon is helping the microbreweries out nicely with his tax breaks - long may it last.

And, if you want to go to a country with decent beer, I'd skip Germany and go to the Czech Republic instead. The beer is far better AND cheaper.

Edit: I've had some of that cream stout - purchased a few bottles whilst in the Lakes last Christmas. Was it any good? It was strong and tasty so I got a few more bottles before I went home...7.5/10, I'd say.

Agree with Hall & Woodhouse (Badger), US Budweiser and Fosters all being absolute ****e. Can't agree with 6X or Palmers though, I rather like them.

To avoid ever discovering a beer worse than those I already know, my golden rule is to never drink beer that comes in a tin/can. Bottles can be ok, but tinnies? Yeeeurgh!!!

Maybe it went a bit off sometime during its trip to the States, but the bottle of St. Peter's Cream Stout I had was just nauseating. In any case, chocolate does not belong in beer.

And, of course, there's this "malt liquor":

In stout, a hint of chocolate adds to the warmth and compliments the "burnt" heavy roasting well. Stout is also generally a winter beer that you only maybe drink a pint of (not a "session beer", I mean) so you want it complex, thick and heavy.

It was a Norwegian beer I bought in Davis, California, in 1972. The oddly-shaped, truncated bottle was sea green, and the contents tasted like sea brine. At that time I could drink a case of Bay Area swill which went for about 87 cents a six-pack without batting an eye; my palate had achieved the much-heralded current ideal of "diversity." But, this product of Norway drew the line in the sand. I couldn't manage more than a few swigs.

P.S. Next worst---the legendary Olde English 800. The California high schoolers' beer male proving ground. It had nothing to do with England---it was a "malt liquor," which, in California parlance of the time, indicated a ridiculously high alcohol content pseudo-beer designed to give career alcoholics a buzz without spending money hard-earned by pan handling. High school males proved their virility by quaffing as many of these as they could (getting beyond one required super-human stamina). As I recall, the cans were all 16 oz. In college I took up a bet to drink a six-pack in one hour while playing poker. There was a reasonable amount of money involved and I needed the money. I won the bet---I was drunk beyond spewing. To add insult to injury, I won a huge pot by a naked bluff---the other players figured I was too ripped to bluff. Idiocy of youth, herf herf.

I have a theory, that all the big breweries over here would go out of business within 15 years if the government lifted or lessoned the moronic drinking age restrictions. I believe Bud Light (shudder) is only popular because it is the most easily accessable "forbidden" alcohol for high school kids. It has appeal because it's illegal for teenagers to have, but it's oh so easy to get. After they've had enough Bud Light (shudder), they forget that it tastes like cat piss, and tend to buy Bud Light because it's what they've always drunk.

Wait, I don't believe I've never seen it before. It's all so clear to me now. It's a conspiracy involving all the "hey, Mister"s of the United States. Kid asks "hey, Mister" to buy beer, "hey, Mister" buys Bud Light (shudder) because he doesn't care if it tastes like piss -- he doesn't have to drink it, kid finds out that Bud Light (shudder) tastes like cat piss, kid reasons that "all the cool kids are doing it" and thus drinks his Bud Light (shudder) anyway, kid builds up a Bud Light Tolerance (shudder), kid ends up actually liking and buying Bud Light (shudder) as an adult.


I'm sure I broke some kind of international treaty by mentioning "Bud Light" (shudder) so many times in one post.

If you're ever in NZ don't try the cheapo Rheineck Beer. It's weak and watery. Actually,I find most of the main NZ breweries to be pretty bland. Emerson's make some nice stuff though, if you can find it.
Kind of surprised so few have mentioned any of the Belgian Trappist beers as their faves. I'd nominate Aachel as one of mine. Westvleteren is fairly interesting,too. Not the kind of beers you can drink a lot of though. For that kind of thing I go more for Suntory Malts or Kirin Ichiban Shibori despite the disagreement of others here. I admit it took me along time to get used to it.
Actually, if you want truly wretched try some of the "Happoshus" that are storming the beer market in Japan. They're about half teh price of actual beer, you see. They're typically 5% alcohol, beer-FLAVOURED sparkling drinks. All the breweries make them here and they are watery, yellow and metallic all at once.

Dutch Grolsch 'malt' is undoubtedly the worst beer ever. The alcohol replacement is the blame I think because normal Grolsch is allright to drink.

Talking about Dutch beers, Buckler is about the saddest brand of beer in the world. It is also a malt beer but you never ever come accross it in supermarkets or in bars nowadays. This is because a Dutch comedian (Youp van 't Hek) totally destroyed the reputation of this beer.

I've had a couple that made me make the yucky beer face and exclaim, "Holy carp! This stuff is bad!" But I don't remember the names. I'll agree that a lot depends on the age of the brew.

Growing up in Milwaukee, I have fond memories of riding in the back of the folk's Buick down I-43 past the Pabst brewery and being able to smell the yeast a mile away. Or of how my Dad took an old fridge and cut a hole in the side for a tap and kept a quater-barrel of (usually) Pabst nice and cold. I could tap a beer with just the right head by the time I was 8.

The beers I like more than most:
PBR, it's not bad, really, and nostalgic.
Corona, with lime on a hot day.
Sol, which, if drank in sufficient quantities, appears to ease the effects of altitude sickness. (An experiment I ran on myself in Toluca a few years back.)
And most any Leinie's, but this one most of all-

I can't even drink that cr@p on a 100 degree day after a softball game. I'd sooner drink water, as that has more flavor.

Pete Coors apologizes in drunk driving case

The former Senate hopeful was stopped May 28 near his Golden home after a trooper said he ran a stop sign.

By Felisa Cardona
Denver Post Staff Writer

Beer magnate and former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Pete Coors was arrested on a drunken-driving charge and is due to appear in court next week.

A Colorado State Patrol trooper pulled Coors over after he saw him run a stop sign around the corner from his home in Golden at 11:25 p.m. on May 28, according to Coors spokeswoman Kabira Hatland and the citations.

Coors stopped his 2004 green Jaguar in his driveway, and the trooper smelled alcohol, said State Patrol spokesman Trooper Gilbert Mares. Coors failed a field sobriety test, was placed in handcuffs and taken to the Golden Police Department jail, Mares said.

A Breathalyzer test showed he registered a 0.088, which is slightly above the 0.08 blood-alcohol limit in Colorado, Hatland said.

Coors was released from the jail nearly three hours after his arrest, Mares said. Coors was not officially booked, which usually includes fingerprinting and a mug shot, but was held until a sober driver picked him up, Mares said.

"These are common practices that they do," he added. "He was not combative, he was cooperative, and our metro jails like to save their bed space for more serious offenders."

Coors said he was headed home from a wedding reception in Denver.

"I should have planned ahead for a ride," Coors said Thursday in a written statement. "For years, I've advocated the responsible use of our company's products. That's still my message, and our company's message. I am sorry that I didn't follow it myself."

Coors, 59, also was cited for running the stop sign.

OK. I used to drink a lot of beer from diverse places so here are my bottom 5 in no particular order:

1. Primo Beer. The beer of Hawaii
2. Mon Lei Beer. Rice beer from Taiwan
3. Seybrew. The beer of the Seychelles
4. Rolling Rock. I bought an eight-pack once in 1975 and wondered why there were 8 bottles. After drinking one, I realized I had 7 bottles to pour down the drain instead of 5.
5. Madrid San Miguel. I've had San Miguel from all 3 breweries, Madrid, Hong Kong & Manila. Hong Kong was the best, Madrid was pretty bad.

Dishonorable mention: Schlitz Export. Regular Schlitz with formaldehyde. Yum-Yum, better than cheese...NOT.

Dishonorable mention: Samichlaus Brown. Swiss beer with 28% alcohol content. the taste & consistency of runny poo that gives a hella buzz.

Now for the ones I liked:

France: Kronenbourg
Italy: Moretti
German: Dinkelacker & Spaten
Japanese: Asahi & Sapporo(Sapporo is the better of the two)
Singapore: Tiger Beer
Hong Kong: San Miguel
Kenya: Tusker Lager
Ireland: Harp Lager
England: Newcastle Ale
Canada: Molson Ale
UShttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gifnly major brewer of note: Pabst Blue Ribbon. Red-necks, White Socks & Blue-Ribbon Beer. Killian's Red Ale by Coors is pretty good.
Henry Weinhard's Ale. From the Irish part of the country, Oregon.
Red Tail & Blue Heron ale from Mendocino Brewing
Fat Tire Beer from Fort Collins, Co.
the original micro-brewery: Anchor Steam Beer, San Francisco, Ca.

Well, this goes to show what I have always known, there are distinct cultures when it comes to beer and different parts of the world have different taste buds. Raised in America and somehow managed to attain 57 years of age, I drink Labatt's Blue, Sam Adams, Foster's and Coors Original. Oh yeah, don't forget Yuengling, which I don't remember being posted.

I have tried several of those Euro brews and I find them too strong and bitter for my taste. Same goes for the plethora of American micro breweries. They taste like witches' piss and I believe are overpriced and a complete waste of money.

Of course, I also drink Gin and Ginger Ale (with ice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif), which I'm sure most Brits would spit onto the floor.

The worst beer I had was a pint of ******ss from an automatic pump in "TA Lackies" nightclub in Ardoyne Belfast!!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

The best beer I've ever had was a pint of ******ss in the "Ploughmans" pub in Hillsborough. Best ******ss in Ireland, it depends on the way it's poured, old style suction pumps are the best. The longer it takes to pour and rest the better. The best whiskey in the world is an Irish Whiskey called "Redbreast" it's a single pot still, the only brand left that is distilled this way.

'Everest'beer made in Nepal is surprisingly good. Its a bit fizzy though and I don't think its available outside of Nepal. They make good Rum too. Odd eh.

Of course, I also drink Gin and Ginger Ale (with ice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif), which I'm sure most Brits would spit onto the floor.

Well Breeze I'm a Brit and I promise I wouldn't spit it onto the floor,and having American relatives,I have been educated in the importance of ice in a drink, and I mean a proper amount, as opposed to the one or two tiny cubes you may get over here.Nothing worse than a warm rum and coke eh? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

What's with all the Pabst Blue Ribbon hate?

It's certainly not GOOD, in any sense of the word, but it's not bad at all. It just tastes like... watery beer. It's beyond cheap over here, too.

Agreed. Cheap watery beer is good for things like riding the lawn tractor, building a deck or a shed, fishing in the hot sun, playing softball, etc.

WORST: Coors Light, Bud Light, Miller Lite...

Singha(Thai) in the 1960's...the Formaldehyde therein(yes, Formaldehyde)gave you a wicked headache!!! Now, I know...it's a MYTH that there is formaldehyde in Singha, but the headaches were REAL! I never get headaches from a reasonable amount of 'regular' beer, but Singha never faileed to deliver a near-migraine one! Every time!

(I've had imported Singha in US Thai restaurants...no problem. Same-same imported Vietnamese "Nuoc Mam sauce...NOT the same as the real thing in the villages!...Nuoc Mam is not a beer, its a food condiment..rotted fish juice, actually)

BEST: Andech's Bergbock Helles. Not exported from Germany. Not even widely distributed withIN germany! Fantastic beer!
