World’s Top 10 Most Disgusting Beers

Good beer is increasingly easy to find in America, and that is good news. However, there are still plenty of gag-reflex-triggering beers on the shelves, and it is time these offenders of good taste were called out.

Here are my picks for the 10 worst beers in the world.

10. Coors Aspen Edge If giving up carbs means giving up any semblance of body or flavor, as is the case with this “beer,” it is probably better to carry a few extra pounds.

9. Milwaukee’s Best I understand this is a sentimental favorite of many, as it takes them back to the old days. Well, human sacrifice harkens to a simpler time, too. If you want to kill your taste buds, try battery acid — it probably tastes better.

8. Sleeman Clear Lager Another low-carb entry, though here the delicate and nuanced notes of lighter fluid and Dumpster drippings on a blistering August day achieves heretofore unknown lows.

7. Cave Creek Chili Beer This is the perfect beer for people who hate themselves and desire punishment. This unholy union of a whole chili pepper and a fiendishly nasty pale lager will get medieval on your tongue.

6. Winter Park Beer While Orlando Brewing makes many fine ales and lagers, they also make this vitamin-infused blasphemy. Generally, when people say things like, “Fruit doesn’t belong in beer,” I think of the many excellent fruit Lambics and disagree. But, vitamins? Vitamin flavor doesn’t belong in beer! Heck, it doesn’t even belong in vitamins — it’s just that the vitamin companies haven’t found a way to make vitamins palatable. And neither have the brewers of this beer.

5. Bootie U95 I thought with a name like Bootie, the makers of this brew were attempting to position it as a dance club beer. Turns out, it simply describes the aroma. Tallahassee Ratebeer.com member Aurelius sums up the Bootie this way: “The name sounds like some sort of nuclear isotope in a barium enema, and it delivers all the flavor the name suggests.”

I know this makes me a bad person, but I *never* liked Ranier or Olympia beer.

    Ya know what Swamps? I am so sick and tired of these kind of people I could really “throttle” someone. (good word there huh?) Taste is what makes your mouth happy, not what makes the snobs happy. Kinda like Sarah D. liking Busch beer and having to take shit about it because some people like to drink beer that costs more and tastes like tree bark. Drink what you like, and to hell with what the experts think.

    (btw, I miss Sarah D.)

    I miss her, too, but I don’t think she could take the political discussions any more. Kinda like me in that respect.

    Heh. My lil’ bro and I had this very same discussion. He drinks what makes his wallet happy and can’t see the point in paying way more for what he considers a marginal difference in taste simply for snob appeal.

    I’m completely lost as to the nuances in bouquet and flavor of various wines. It all tastes like alcohol-flavored vinegar to me, and then red wine gives me a headache.

    The fridge in the garage always has a 6-pack in it of something (usually inexpensive, like Budweiser) for things like beer cheese soup or beer and onion gravy, and I also have various wines and Jack Daniels on hand for marinating and cooking rather than drinking. SwampMan and I are for all practical purposes nondrinkers, but we do like the flavor it adds to foods.
