    At least my amber had some darker malts and hops to cover it up some. Kölsch style beers do not tolerate ANY mistakes.

    Shark Bite

    Port Brewing - Shark Bite

    I'm pretty sure it was just a bad batch because it was good at the tasting bar.

    The bottles weren't filled all the way, it was so bitter, it tasted like somebody crushed a Vivarin pill in each bottle.
    Secondary: Sage Wit
    Bottle Conditioning: Grapefruit Witbier, Double IPA
    Supply waning: Pale Ale

    The other night the A1A Ale House in St. Augustine was serving a honey wit that was best used for fulshing a bowl. I sent it back and I believe it caused some hard feelings.

    I found all their beers to be very mediocre, with a very rare "pretty good" beer, and occasionally a beer I did not finish.

    OBTW, they are owned by Gordon-Biersch.

    i´ll divide my response into 2 categories:

    1. in the u.s.: blue moon, sam adams boston lager, prohibition porter (cant remember the breweries name, but its based around baltimore.)

    2. outside the u.s. : pilsator, sternburg, oettinger pils, schloss pils, breznak (czech lager).

    VB ... Vile Bile it is. Burnt vegetable tasting drain cleaner, which is what the remains of both of them I tried did. (yes, I tried another one at a different venue in a different state to give it a chance)

    I was trying to think of a beer that I couldn't finish, and had been having trouble doing so, until I remembered a beer that I had many, many years ago. It was called "Buffalo Butt," and it was produced by a now defunct Ft. Worth (I am pretty sure) brewer. I can understand, after having that beer, why they are now defunct. It was vile.

    Last bottle that comes to mind as a drain pour - My buddy and I split a bomber of New Holland Pilgrim's Dole Wheatwine. Try as we did, we couldn't finish more than half of our glasses. I really enjoy Smuttynose Wheatwine though

    Avery's Samael's Ale. I found it to be way too sweet and a sticky mess. I believe I poured 3/4 of it away as I was not going to force it down. Did not suit my palate at all.

    Dragon Stout is the definitive classic of its style, tropical stout. If you were expecting a dry stout, I can understand why you would not like it, but it is really a great stout when you are expecting it.

    I only remember sinking one beer. I got
    a six of Pale Ale from Dunedin Brewing
    while vacationing in Fla. One of the six
    was bad. Not sure if it was infected or
    what, but I poured most of it down the
    drain. The rest were fine.

    Left a can of Old Style Light sitting on
    the bar after a couple of sips not long
    ago. I don't think that counts though
    as I knew it was going to be crap before
    the beer tender set it up.
    And for those of you who really don't like beer, there's AB, Coors and MillerSAB products.

    Billy Beer, could be Billy Bob Beer. I just happen to remember that my father still has this from the 80's. I've never had it and never will. Just a collectors item.

    The one that sticks out is Abt 12 60th anniversary. It tasted like raisin wine.
