    Since this is your first post, you probably need to look around here a little and learn more about the world of beer. There's a whole bunch'a good flavor out there that you're missing by settling with Red Stripe.

    You know, I just recalled that on our recent camping trip I tried a bottle and could only bring myself to get through a couple swallows before I gave up: Dundee Pale Bock Lager. Just wasn't worth the time.

    I can't think of any beer that I just couldn't stand to finish. There are plenty that have been disappointments or just not anything that I'd entertain trying again.

    Hoegaarden among the disappointments. I get a recipe kit from my lhbs that I enjoy more than Hoegaarden. Save for the last time I brewed it and it fermented too hot.

    Nearly anything from New Belgium goes on the list to not try again.
    As a matter of fact, I do have a good reason for smelling like a brewery.

    You'd be surprised, your palate can really evolve as you try new & different beers -- if you let it.

    And that will definitely alter your perception of each beer. Try the Harvest on a clean palate and you may be surprised at how different it tastes.

    thanks for the advice. my taste buds will get used to and even learn to enjoy certain brews. if i drink stronger crafted beer and then switch to light beer, miller light for example, going back to crafted does taste weird sometimes. i will try my dif. brews i recently purchased from my local beer kingdom they call Beers of the World before drinking anything as to get a unbiased unaltered taste experience.

    Only a couple

    Taking out all the lightstruck and oxi'd beers I've had to waste there are precious few that I have had to dump.

    While we've had the discussion before I'll tempt fate again to say that I couldn't stomach a Rouch bier (you know the one) that I bought on a whim.

    Based on how some other people I know rave about it, plus the fact that you couldn't finish it makes me really intrigued. I picked up a bottle today, I can't wait to try it.

    Was this a prepackaged box of beers from different breweries? If so, be careful. Many stores purchase these generic packages and fill them with aging beer or even beer that is well past its freshness window. If that retailer allows you to mix your own six packs, go for it. Much better way to try new brews.

    It is all pumpkin and no spices which would seem like a good thing...All I got was a waxy candy corn or popcorn butter smell and it was hard to get past that. My wife and son did not like it either. I had a bomber that I got at Whole Foods I think. I managed to get through about a half a pint.

    I might be in your boat then. I like DFH's and Weyerbacher's because the spices.
