I haven't had to drink Bud (regular) in a long time. Yuk.

It's the only bottle in the fridge over at the in-laws.

Ah well.

So what's the worst beer you've had before? And how many did you have of it anyway?

My Dad used to give me a sip out of his can as a kid. It was this orange Kool-Aid looking stuff. Didn't even look like beer. Tasted terrible.

Hey Justin... I'm drinking Shiner Bock. Later at the bar I'll probably have Alaskan Amber.

I wonder where and when this started. I used to get Blue Moon's all the time at the bar, and never had an orange in it. Then one day about a year ago the 'tender asks if I want a slice. I did, and don't have one without it now. I wonder how long it took my podunk, backwoods town to join the rest of civilization.

I'll be honest, I hated beer when I started drinking... So I started with tequilla and Boone's Farm Strawberry (basically the same as Zima).

Over time (and numerous Keystone Lights) I burned in my pallet and started to appreciate beer. That was about 15 years ago.

Now, the closest I get to Zima or BF is a snake bite (Sam Adam's and Cider)... mmmm.

once in a while the people at the restaraunt I used to work at get together and have a "White Trash Bash" (yes, everybody, not just me, hates white trash at the restaraunt....well the kitchen crew doesn't, just the servers) as they call it and we start off the night with 40's of Mickeys or Colt 45s and go out to white trash bars and the guys wear sleeveless shirts and nascar apparel and the girls wear trashy clothes I guess (but the cute ones still looked good in them).

What's this "green bottle" bullshit? Two of my favorite beers come in green bottles - Pilsner Urquell (long time fav.) and Beck's (recent love). Also, somebody mentioned Hefe-Weizen, that beer is tasty, so if you don't like beer because it tastes "gross", Hefe-Weizen might change your opinion, that or Spaten Optimator.

I'd like to get ahold of the asshat that developed green and clear beer bottles. The problem with them is they allow light to enter the bottle and "skunk" beer. Ever wonder why all the beers that are in green and clear beer bottles taste skunky? Because they're light struck.....Corona, Grolsh, Heineken, etc. Most hops are light sensitive and can become skunky in a matter of seconds when exposed to light. Miller, however, uses a modified hop in their beers that doesn't allow the skunky flavor. That's why Miller High Life can be bottled in clear bottles and not taste skunky.
Pilsner Urquell is one of the finest beers ever brewed, but you have to drink it out of a keg.
Here's an experiment for you, buy a 12 pack of corona (the 12 pks are enclosed in a box and don't allow light to enter) and compare the taste to a six pack that's been sitting in a store for awhile. Buy some Heineken in the keg cans and compare it to the six pack bottles. You'll find they taste quite a bit different.

Check out my last post. Sorry, it came out wrong.

Anyway, alot of the breweries over there use green bottles, but it isn't a problem because they're served before they ever get exposed to much light.

In reality, it's a combination of 3 things that ruins green-bottled beer for us here in the US:

1. the bottles themselves

2. the fact that the stuff has to be shipped over here (which means they're no longer fresh, and often light-struck 10 times over before they ever reach the retailer

3. Our necessity to DISPLAY everything to make it catchy and sellable. If our beer retailers would sell beer out of caves instead of neon stores fronts, we'd have alot less problem.

Althought this MAY be true, but the light reference is SUNlight, not storefed electric light. Not only that- There must be a hundred thousand beer producers across the globe using clear and/or green bottles- most of them do a little something called - PRODUCT TESTING. I can assure you, if what you say is true- none of them would be using clear and/or green bottles for their products.

Miller, however, uses a modified hop in their beers that doesn't allow the skunky flavor. That's why Miller High Life can be bottled in clear bottles and not taste skunky.

Miller tastes "skunky" to me. Although I'm not sure what "skunky" is supposed to taste like, but in your case- it doesn't sound good. Trust me, I've tried and tasted a zillion beers- I know what tastes like shit, and I'll still drink it.

Yes it is, and no you don't.

Here's an experiment for you, buy a 12 pack of corona (the 12 pks are enclosed in a box and don't allow light to enter) and compare the taste to a six pack that's been sitting in a store for awhile. Buy some Heineken in the keg cans and compare it to the six pack bottles. You'll find they taste quite a bit different.

I don't need experiments. I've heard the same hogwash that beer tastes better in bottles than they do in cans. I don't care either way, but I do drink my beer out of bottles all the time- never in cans. It has nothing to do with tastes, but rather the fact that I like the feel of holding a cold, crisp bottle in my hand.

Beer comes in an insurmountable list of flavors and brewing processes. The truest beer in the world has been and will always be Guinness. I've known peeps who have transplanted from Ireland to the states, and they've all said the same thing- Guinness here is not as good as the Guinness there- because of the brewing process.

But, as for your "green" and "clear" bottle hypothesis- I don't buy it. And quite honestly, don't really care. One of my favorite beers- Stella Artois comes in a green bottle and it is hands down better than any Miller product I've ever tasted. And if you think Heineken sucks- well, I don't know what to say, but I feel sorry for anyone that can't drink beer out of a green bottle.

I don't drink Bud- not for the taste- which I actually think is good. But, I don't drink Bud because of the AFTERtaste. I don't like aftertaste with my beer, particularly if I'm going to be drinking so many in a short time.

This is generally not a problem. Unfortunately, SAB (South African Brewers) brews most of these beers in Canada or the US. SAB just recently purchased Pilsner Urquell and is brewing it in Canada, for distribution in the US. They have been brewing for Heineken/Amstell for quite some time, under contract. No telling how many other companies they brew for, because they won't tell.
Sam Adams does this regionally here in the US. They hire small regional brewers to brew their beer.

So what's the worst beer you've had before? And how many did you have of it anyway?
I have to agree with you on the Budweiser. Horrible stuff. I think it's the rice they use in brewing, just gives it a nasty ass taste imo. I can drink Bud Light but strongly prefer Miller Lite.

best beer... Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat, Miller High Life/Light

worst beer...Hamm's, Guiness, Budweiser

Althought this MAY be true, but the light reference is SUNlight, not storefed electric light. Not only that- There must be a hundred thousand beer producers across the globe using clear and/or green bottles- most of them do a little something called - PRODUCT TESTING. I can assure you, if what you say is true- none of them would be using clear and/or green bottles for their products.

Actually, it is both sunlight and store light. And it is a problem.

Yes it is, and no you don't.

Have you ever had a PU over there and one over here? If you had, you'd never drink it out of anything other than a keg in the US again.

But, as for your "green" and "clear" bottle hypothesis- I don't buy it. And quite honestly, don't really care. One of my favorite beers- Stella Artois comes in a green bottle and it is hands down better than any Miller product I've ever tasted. And if you think Heineken sucks- well, I don't know what to say, but I feel sorry for anyone that can't drink beer out of a green bottle.

You're favorite beer is probably shipped/handled differently. The green bottle isn't the problem, exposure to light is.

Wrong. Store lighting DOES cause skunked beer.

Yes it is, and no you don't.
You don't have to buy it in kegs, if you're able to get a six pack directly out of the case. If it's sitting on a shelf, I'll pass.

Don't buy it, I could care less. But it's been proven by chemists (http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2001-10/uonc-ucf101701.php). BTW, I don't like Miller and I don't think Heineken sucks. I can drink beer out of a green bottle, if it's a freshly opened case.

That's why you only drink Guiness from CANS.
Huh? Guiness comes in COVERED, almst black bottles.

My beer of choice, if I am drinking to get shitty is Labatt's Blue Light.

If I'm having a beer to have a beer, I prefer a darker beer. Guinness, Murphy's (which i find to be more tasty than Guiness), Killians Irish Red, Bass Ale, Smithwick's. Shit, I guess I'm partial to mostly Irish beers.

It was a problem for Pilsner Urquell, but it sounds like they found a solution. Personally, I don't much like Heine or Amstell.
I just hope SAB leaves PU alone. When AB buys out microbreweries, they dumb down the recipies, i.e., Redhook. Redhook used to taste quite different than it does now.

Hmmm, interesting. I'm still a little skeptical, but as much as I love a good beer- I don't put that much emphasis on it.

Ironically, now that I think about it- most of my favorite beers come in brown bottles. Stella Artois is of the exception.

As for Corona- bleh. Women drink Coronas as evidenced by my trip back home to KC for the Fourth of July. We bought a bunch of beer, wine, and alcohol for our week at the Lake of the Ozarks and the women in the family wanted Coronas. My brother-in-law wanted some cheap domesticated beer. And I ended up buying a case of Boulevard Wheat Beer- not only because I love the taste of Boulevard Wheat, but I can't get it here in Colorado- dammit! You guys have no idea how blessed you are in KC to have such a damn good home-brewed beer there....I may have Fat Tire here, but I'll take Boulevard Wheat any day.

I don't really care for Corona either. I was just using Corona and Heineken as examples of what light exposure will do to beer in clear and green bottles.
Light will also skunk beer in brown bottles, but it takes a lot more exposure. I don't think I've ever had a skunky beer in a brown bottle.
I bought a kegerator for two reasons. One, I can get microbrews and imports much cheaper by the keg. I can get Sierra Nevada in a 1/2 BBL for $110. That breaks down to $4/six pack. Two, light can't penetrate a keg.
The only problem with kegs is variety and different keg taps. I had to buy a special "slider" tap, just so I could order some different European beers.

I know what the worst beer a mooching friend ever had. I pulled a display bottle of Corona and Rolling Rock that has been sitting there in light for about 5 years from the bar at the restaraunt I worked at and bought 2 fresh 12 packs of each. He came over and wanted to mooch some beer as always and I put those 2 display bottles in the 2 fresh 12 packs and put them up front so they should be the one's to grab first out of the case. He grabed the Rolling Rock and drank about 1/2 of it and realized and mentioned the beer tasted disgusting...I started cracking up and he realized what I had done!

He hasn't mooched as many beers since then

I have always wondered been a bit sceptical about that theory. Newcastle and Samuel Smiths come to mind since they are in clear bottles. I havent had a bad one of either and have even picked up some Samuel Smiths in the store with a coating of dust on it from being their so long.

Though its noticeable with something like Heiniken which is much better when its fresh. However the same can be said about many beers.

about a few years ago an underaged girl asked me to go buy her a 6 pack of Zima and so I went and the guy at the check out counter laughed at me
That didn't have anything to do with the zima.

Guiness is best from a nitrogen-charged keg. I have no idea where you can get that in KC anymore.

Oxygen will f**k up your beer just like light. Nitrogen doesn't have that issue and will, IMO, give finer bubbles in the head.

I'll drink any beer that's free.

But all domestic beers a la Bud/Coors/Miller etc taste like hamster urine...I'm sure there are differences in taste, but who the hell would drink one slow enough to notice?

That's shits for chugging and cursing its shitty taste under your breath, until your drunk at which point you might as well drink the cheapest shit available.

The fact that Boulevard beer is available in Kansas means you have no excuse- ever - for paying for that domestic swill.

Besides, there are too many good beers in the world to waste time with bad ones.

I had always heard that guiness was always nitrogen because its so thick. No idea if thats true though.
