I heard it was Billy Beer
nothing can be worse than Bud Lite
Bud Lite is not that bad.
Williamsburg Tavern Ale might be the worst beer I tasted. Oskar Blues Old Chub Scottish Ale is really bad too. I almost did not finish the 6-pack. I cheated by using one of the cans in a roast beef, which turned out OK. White Hawk Ale is also a strong contender. Bud Lite cannot compete because its flavor is weak and can easily be ignored. However, I cannot ignore the flavor of Old Chub beer. I tried eating food with it, but the food was never strong enough to mask this beers hideous flavor.
I am no fan of any Scotch Ale...
... needless to say I don't care for Scotch either. Somehow I've never found the taste of burning peat very appetizing (call me crazy).
Worst domestic beer? Billy Beer was bad... during the generic brand craze when all the labels were black and white with the name of the product pasted on it there was "BEER". It was pretty bad too.
Schaffers? Natty Light? National Bohemian?
O'Doul's NA beer. Taste like water from canned mushrooms, but not as good.
Best all around beer is Killian's Red. No "lite" beer is any good, but Coors
light is the most tolerable. Do they still make Black Label? Last I saw it
was in the early 80's and even the drunks didn't want to buy it, even on
special. Best "cheap" beer was Schaeffer's, if they still make it.
Black Label Beer
James, Is made in Canada and available. Used to be brewed in Natick, MA.
Great beer for long gas spells. You could light them (the gas) on fire.
"Socity of the Blue Flames"
True! I kid you not!
After seeing the film, "Blue Velvet"......
...I decided to try Pabst Blue Ribbon. Ugh.
I also think "Corona Light" and "Coors Light" are redundant.

Frank Booth: What kind of beer do you like to drink, neighbor?
Jeffrey Beaumont: Heineken.
Frank Booth: Heineken? F*** that s***! Pabst Blue Ribbon!
one of my favorite movies plus that was a favorite 'last dance, with your best girl' tune when in high school.
PBR. huge selling local beer in the day.
trivia: sponsored boxing in the 50's when I was growing up.
1st american brewery to produce 1,000,000 barrels in 1895
Pabst Blue Ribbon ?
?is on a comeback. Why!?
Also Narragansett Beer from RI. "Have a Gansett neighbor!"
I do happen to like a Gansett 16 oz.
Pretty good tasting beer. I remember 20 years ago that a 16oz. Gansett and a shot of Old Thompson whiskey cost .90 cents in the old Blue Moon Cafe on Summer St. (across from South Station and the Federal Reserve building) in downtown Boston.
Now it would cost close to $10 or $12 in downtown Boston.
I can still get a shot and Bud bottle beer for $3.75 at a local American Legion or VFW in MA.
Seems most of those costs are taxes.
What the heck is wrong with brewing your own??
Any one brew their own?
I love to taste home brew. Knock your socks off also!
Your down in Texas, right?
A long time ago, driving through Texas in 1994 after mountain biking in the south-west, I stopped for the night and had a beer called "Tecate". It was in the bottle and was pretty good. Since that time I have only seen it in the can and it is one of the rankest beers I can think of.
Question: is my recollection off and was it the 100 degree temperature in late June that made it taste so good or was I spot on and it just has changed makers or the Can stuff is to be avoided?
Tecate is not a bad beer at all
It's very big in Tex-Mex restaurants (in the Northeast too!).
Corona is bottled piss though.
Maybe it's the water.
Since a teenager visiting the Mexican border, was advised not to drink the water. We said ok, just drink beer. The water used in Tecate may be coming from the US by underground pipe as Tecate is made on the Mexican border about 40 miles from San Diego. Corona is made quite a ways into Mexico and is now 52% owned by Budweiser & Co.
We get the bottled Tecate and Corona here and just about every youngster (even in Las Vegas) ask for a slice of lime in the neck. That habit started a long time ago in Mexico and was done to keep flies from drinking their share rather than a making the beer go down better.
My fav beer is Foster (Oz), but usually drink bottled Bud.
Schaffers and Black Label were the usual way back when we were short (before credit cards) as it was usually on sale less than a dollar a six pack, even cheaper than our local Lone Star and Pearl, which ran about 90 cents a six pack with returnable bottles.
Must be the can used for Tecate...
... or maybe here in the North East we are getting the out of date stuff. Either way, it isn't as good as I remember it being in the bottle.
Best local beer?
The case price is cheap and up until a year or so ago you could still get it in returnable bottles.
I also like a beer from across the OTHER border
Labatt's Blue is pretty good. The only American beer I really care for at all is Sam Adams.
One of the best from up north
... IMO is Molson's Canadian with the red label. The Golden and Ice are dreck.
Another good one back in the day was O'Keefe Ale and I must admit a fondness for ice cold (ice crystals floating in it) Moose Head on a hot day. Yeah, it smells like moose pee but that is what it is destined for anyway!
First time I was ever in a canadian package store was back in 79. It took me a minute to figure out why they had a window showcasing different packages of the same beer. It wasn't until I saw a case roll out on the... conveyer? What ever it is called... the thing with tiny metal wheels they slide cases of beer on from the back to the counter up front. Anyway, that is when I understood what the window was for.
JR, ever remember?
?PICKWICK ALE, brewed in Roxbury/Boston, MA?
It was called the "Poor Man's Whiskey"
If you mixed the Ale and beer together it was called a "MUSKIE."
John, I still drink muskies. They taste great. Go into an Irish Pub and order them. Also a "BLACK & TAN."
Mix a draught Guinness Stout and an ale together.
Good tasting suds.
Now, you are making me thirsty for a muskie.
Ahh, the heck with that! I am sampling an Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale. Only brewed in Nova Scotia since 1820. You know what??Good brew! Very hard to find and purchase. Not exported. Tastes like a cream ale to me. Good stuff! Smells good also.
Now what I want is a good ham sandwich to go along with it.
best name: BLATZ ...... worst: warm
Not being a connoisseur of beers...
The worse-tasting I've experienced is Coranoa and Killian's Red.(Never saw it sold in Ireland.)
But any brews made by Samuel Adams are enjoyable. As is Harp.
I'm a huge Guinness Stout fan.
But even it has its limits. Poor taste comes from:
1. The bottled kind which is pasteurized. The cans of "draft" are pretty good.
2. When poorly drawn.
3. Some stout (not Guinnness) I had in a micro-brewery. That stuff was carbonated!!!

See, it comes down to taste. I've tried all the Samuel Adams varieties and they
all have one thing in common I don't care much for. To me they have a "salty" taste.
If I want something salty, I prefer to eat it then have the beer wash it down. Maybe it's
the extra hops they put in there which gives it the "bite" or "salty" taste
that I'm not too crazy about. It's decent beer. Guiness is a beer I think of
as "a meal in a beer". I'm not crazy about the widget, but it's definitely a filling
beer equally suited to kill hunger for awhile too. But, that's just my
take on them.
You're right. It is a matter of personal taste.
I reckon that is why there are so many on the market.
I like a strong taste, which I guess is why I like stout. (But not Boch or Bock!) Yes, Guinness is heavy. That's why it is sipped.
I don't care for the carbonation in beer, and the burps that go with it, nor it's diuretic effect.(Both absent in Guiinness,)
Let's see... how long has it been since I've had one. August 2006.
I had one Sam Adams in May 2006.
So, you see, I am not an expert.

Regardless the excuse........
people drink to get a buzz. Tast probably has the very least to do with it.
Angeline and beers?
?Carrona is bad I agree. Wonder why the flies like it? I hate it!
Guiness Stout used to be a home remedy for anything that was ailing young children in Ireland for years. Kind of like an elixir or tonic. Fix you right up. Still does.
The widget is ok when you cannot have access to draught beer or ale.
My preference is always a good draught ale.
Killians is at best OK.
I was in at a brew house in Slippery Rock, PA last Nov. They had an ale called:"FIREHOUSE RED"
An ale that was fabulous to sip and drink with food that was awesome also. The brew house donated 10% of all sales to the local firehouse. The brewhouse building used to be a firehouse years ago. The new firehouse is close by. Really neat! They also made a stout that was great! Strong alcohol content.
Prefer ale rather than beer. Better and richer taste.
Light? Do not drink beer!
reply to: What is the worst beer ever made?
The kind that makes people act stupid.
Nearly all of them have that potential
Some just lighten the wallet more while absolving you of your wisdom.
Most beers with more than 7-8% alcohol...
And especially the Polish and Russian ones. They taste like a beer with a couple of shots of Vodka in it! YUCK! There are exceptions though. Like a Belgian beer called Leffe Triple which has 8.5% alcohol and is very good.

Terry, That brew house in Slippery Rock, PA had one ale that was 11.3%.
They had a standing policy for only two pints per serving.
It was a fabulous brew.
Had that with a half-pound bison burger served rare. Now, that is my kind of brew house.
They also filled up growlers for all the college student throughout the day for $9. (Slippery Rock College.)
Oh, I forgot to mention the worst ale I have ever had?Ballentine Pale India Ale. Always tasted like skunk kiss. (Nice typo.) Nasty stuff and my friend and I always managed to swill this crud down while our wives were getting croaked on Pink Pussycat wine at $3.99 a quart.
George and I went skiing the next morning early at Wildcat Mountain in NH, while our wives were recouping from a hang-over.
Moral of the story. Stay away from cheap wine. Go for a disgusting India Pale Ale. You wife will never understand what is really good to drink and to prevent a hang-over! HA! :
So there may be another exception...
If it doesn't have that strong alcohol taste (the taste of shots) I believe it is very good. Thanks for the sugestion, Kevin. Let's see if I can find it this weekend and give you some feed-back.
The Brooklyn Brewery is my favorite.
The The Brooklyn Brewery makes: Pilsner, Black Chocolate Stout (10% ), Lager, Pale Ale, Barley wine (Often hard to find), India Pale Ale (A little bitter for my taste), Porter, Pumpkin Ale ( ), and many others. The Pumpkin Ale is seasonal and I have not had the Pilsner.
The Brooklyn Brewery is my favorite.
Cyborganizer, Sounds like a great place.
I have had that Pumpkin Ale someplace else. cannot remember where right now.
The most outrageous bar that I went to was in the old historic part of Scottsdale, AZ. Some very small local micro brewers as well as their own were served. 86 separate draft lines. Very, very impressive! Next week there would be a couple of dozen new micro brewers set up and offered.
Why can't I find a place like that in MA!
If we sampled only a third of them on a given day?? can you imagine? When I first went in to the bar I had five small samples free. Four ounce samples. The owner asked me if I would like to sample more.
I could have stayed there all day. I bought two pints of a cream ale. Than everything went south. My wife returned and dragged me out of there.
Want to go beer and ale sampling? Leave the wife home!!
Just bring a seeing eye dog with you or a name and address tag around your neck. Reads: Take me home. Reward in it for you! :
