    A Barons pale ale, it wasn't even a full beer, but a 3oz sample.

    My observation about beer is that a beer may taste good one time but on another occasion it will not tickle your fancy. I also think that saying one coast or section of the contry has better beers than another is like saying vanilla is better than chocolate.

    As to the subject matter, I cold not finish a bottle of a beer called RattleSnake. No offense to Chaz, but a beer he gave me when I was on that hockey trip was a dumper. It was a pilsner I think, I can't name it as I am not home and do not have the bottle to check. I third the SA Cherry Wheat as well.

    Was it one of the Cottonwood brews from North Carolina? I didn't much like those either.

    I seem to recall having a Cottonwood beer once that was infected. Haven't had one since then.

    There was a pale ale from Wisconsin (I think Milwaukee) that was horrific. Another pale ale that I couldn't finish was from Anderson Valley but I absolutely love their IPA

    High-octane IPA... I rarely enjoy it anymore, at least not more than one. I ask myself if I shouldn't be enjoying a *tamer* beer. Sacrilege?

    SWMBO and I were so excited to get Alaskan Brewing Co. beer distributed in Colorado. Got bombers of everything available and couldn't take more than three sips of the smoked porter.

    Well, I have one cellering. I figure my pallete will change over time, so I look forward to trying it after exposing my tastebuds to other varieties of smoked beverages. Hopefully, by a year or so, I'll be looking for a vertical tasting of 3-4 years of smoked porters.

    I have had a few beers I had to pour(All mine):

    1> First try at Hard Apple Cider - complete batch pour
    2> My first try at an Amber Ale - Fermented too hot and I hated it
    3> A bottle of KH Mild - Too much molasess flavor, I fixed this by letting them cold condition for a few days.
    a post by Mad Scientist:
    FWIW, SWMBO and I were working the house the other night, when she asked my if I knew how to soften hardened caulk, I told her "a cop tapping on the window should do it...."

    Bottled: Berry Wiezen (keeping one)

    I have 5-6 years of Alaskan Smoked Porter in my basement.

    OBTW, their Barleywine (which I believe was bottled for the first time last winter) is absolutely FANTASTIC. by far, the BEST American BW I have EVER had!

    Reminds me of one I had forgotten. Duck-Rabbit Porter. Very strange name for a brewery, but more importantly, the beer had an infection that created such a heavy diacetyl flavor and aroma I could not stomach more than a sip or two.
