10 Worse beers of all-time - How many have you imbibed?



http://www.ct.com/entertainment/photos/wtxx-the-10-worst-beers-of-alltime-20120509,0,3264083.photogallery

We all have different tastes when it comes to beer. I might not like the taste of Heineken, but I realize there are others who appreciate it. However, there are a handful of beers that are universally reviled. They exist solely as a cost-saving measure, and contain no desirable taste whatsoever. Here they are, the 10 worst beers ever. Even the people who drink these beers don't think they're good. Trust me... I've had them all. -By Tom Z

<<<<snip>>>>

10 Miller High Life
( May 9, 2012 )
"The champagne of beers" doesn't exactly live up to its name, unless of course the champagne we're talking about is Andre.


#9 Busch
( May 9, 2012 )
I actually find Busch Light to be pretty decent, especially when compared to other beers at the same price point. Unfortunately I can't say the same about regular Busch. An old commercial for this beer showed a fisherman pulling a can out of a stream and drinking it, which is appropriate since it tastes like trout-infested water.

<<<<<more>>>>>



I've had 7 of them. I remember my sophmore year we lived on Beast Lite. But LynneSin Trivia - the first beer I ever bought (at the ripe old age of 18) was Genny Cream Ale. I almost swore off beer that night!!!

1. Only two of them

The Original Miller High Life - First beer I ever had when I was 8 or 9. I was fascinated with the girl on the label. My aunt drank it. I'll still use it for cooking.

Schlitz - Maybe once or twice, but I don't remember when.

The others on the list - gnat's piss.

And my abhorrence of any beer that uses "Lite" as a descriptive.

I'm not Cayce Pollard, but possibly related to her.

I went to a function and everyone was standing around drinking miller lite from the aluminum provider. I asked what it was answer, I said thank you and left the function. I hear from behind me "wow he has standards"

8. Thankfully, only two.

Unfortunately, one of those was Genny Cream Ale (I, too, was 18 at the time). I wouldn't drink American beer for about a year after that.

or the Steel Reserve


but I wanna forget all those others....Life is too short to drink bad beer.





Free beer, however, is different. (The small, family owned meat market I went to this weekend has a self serve tap of Natty light running for shoppers. That 3.5 lbs of hamburger I got didn't hurt my sensibilities at the checkout counter as much as it might have without the free beer...)

14. The author of that piece obviously doesn't drink a lot of beer.

Claiming Milwaukee's Best to be bad beer is like claiming Nickelback to be bad rock-n-roll. Of course it is. But it was never trying to be anything more. Nobody is expecting anything fabulous when you can get 24 cans for under 10 bucks.

In the last few years I have had some truly horrible craft brews that made me wish a PBR was around to rinse the awful taste from my mouth. Just because it has a hand drawn label, is made in small batches, and costs a lot more doesn't necessarly make it any better.

Also, why are people who denigrate mass produced beer so well versed in the taste of various types of animal piss?

22. Where's Old Milwaukee? 2 AM college beer runs ALWAYS turned up OM at $3/6-pack.

.
.
.
Even shitfaced, it got a sip and an "Oh, yeah!" and a handoff to someone else as I headed for the
door. I'm not the least bit of a beer snob. Drank amazing German beers in-country for 4 years and
came back and was "satisfied" by Miller Lite.
.
BEST two American beers I have had were a blueberry pilsner from a microbrewery in Moab, UT (you
couldn't taste the blueberries) and Miller High Life Light (NOT Lite) in bottles. Each so clean and fresh
that they were not merely TASTY, but easily helped me transcend wherever I was physically, mentally
and emotionally at the time.
.
I've experimented with a LOT of things, but I think early on I equated beer with a life partner -- why
play the field and grimace often when you already have what (or whom) is perfect for YOU.

33. Miller High Life Light is okay.

Back when I was spending 10 hour days in a South Carolina swamp in the summer, it was rather refreshing at the end of the day, as hot, dehydrated as I was. As far as light beers go, I prefer Yuengling Light for a few bucks more.

26. I live in the land of Genny Cream Ale

It was the first beer I ever had a sip of (I was 6 at the time, I believe--stole my dad's because it smelled good, but of course decided it tasted TERRIBLE). And yet I went on to live a completely normal life, which included four years of severe beer drinking, otherwise known as college.

27. I must take issue with Genny Cream being number 1

I haven't had it in years, but I used to have it pretty regularly and it was a pretty good beer, particularly for the price point. Whenever we needed cheap beer in quantity, our first choice was Lost Lakes Pilsner, and our second was Genesee Cream.

I've had seven of them, too, but most not often. Other than GCA, probably had Icehouse the most, back in college. Definitely not great stuff--haven't suffered it in years

32. The first beer I ever drank is #1.

My dad has home movies of the party my grandma threw for my first birthday. There are segments of it where I am sitting on my grandma's lap sharing her Miller High Life. Of the rest of the list, I have only had four others. Maybe five. I can't recall whether or not I ever had a Schlitz. It's possible I had it back in my high school or college days.

the unbearable smells my body produced the next day were enough to keep me from every drinking it again.

high life is the only other one i've had, i'll pick up a six pack every once in a while. it's good for porch drinking on a hot day.
