A couple years ago, I was at a friend’s bachelor party, he was curious to see if there was any difference between taste in the cheap domestic beers in stores. He wanted us all to bring a pack of different ones so we could do a blind taste test and rank them. There was a pretty good diversity represented, from Coors to Bud Light, Keystone, Busch, Pacifico… and then I show up with Steel Reserve 211. I had never tried it before, but I had heard of its reputation for sure, and I knew I had a winner, or loser as the case may have been, in my hands. It was pretty well universally ranked as the worst on everybody’s list, including mine.

But even with that swill, it’s still not the worst tasting beer that I’ve ever had.

I had two beers when I went out with a friend last night to a covered patio at a local bar and grill and had a splitting headache when I woke up this morning.  :facepalm: :facepalm:

Fortunately, an aspirin knocked it right out, but it was a reminder of what a lightweight I am now.  :lol :lol

My wife picked up some Peroni a few days ago.

Disgusting.
Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?

Only had it in Epcot.   Seemed like law.

In my college days, I would hang out in Washington Square Park with a bunch of Colt45 tall boys. That stuff tasted like dirt and got me all kinds of f@cdup.

More recently, after my beer league hockey games, we’d drink Natural Light, which is also pretty putrid.

Add me to the small group who can't stand beer.  Just the smell makes me want to vomit.  Give me straight scotch anyday without a problem but for some reason, I hate beer. 
Everyone else, except Wolfking is wrong.

I usually only drink beer in social gatherings and in those cases I only pick stuff I enjoy or if I pick something new it's usually by someones request. However occasionally I just get whatever the bartender recommends and that can lead to some questionable things.

I've rarely drink alcohol on my own however sometimes I make myself a GT. My favourite beer during summer is probably a cold Hoegaarden.

Mickey's was pretty good.  We also got this stuff:



We experimented with that, but if we were going that route, we tended to lean toward The Bull, Schlitz Malt Liquor.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Disgusting.
So, I was born in The Dominican Republic, and the main beer there is a beer called Presidente. If you mention beer in DR, you are talking about Presidente. I had a few during my teens, but I was never a beer person so never liked them.

Anyways fast forward from my DR days to a few years ago, when I tried my first Peroni, and I swear the taste is identical to Presidente, just a different label. It was weird, but I started looking into the history of both beers only to discover that Presidente was invented in the 1930's only a few years after Italians were migrating to DR (Me thinks they copied). Just thought that was interesting  :) off I go

Oh I've had Presidente.  A bit like Heineken.  Never was fond of either.

My dad used to say that all beer is horse piss.

It's just that some horses are sicker than the others..... :hat

I kinda like Presidente. As far as Heineken is concerned, I prefer Heine Lite over their regular beer. But MAN does that stuff make me have to piss. Speaking of, that’s sort of a problem at my age with drinking beer in general. At home I’ll drink freely, but if I’m at a concert or outing, I need to regulate my intake just cuz of the piss factor.  :sadpanda:

Also, I used to frequent a downtown Manhattan dive bar called Kino’s where all the barmaids were dressed in 2-piece bikinis. Whenever you ordered a Heineken, the barmaid would pull the cold bottle from the fridge, slap her ass with it and declare “One Heine comin’ right up!”
