A while back, in an airport bar, ordered some specific beer, took one swig and realized the bartender had made a mistake.

It was the dreaded and awful Budweiser.

Knew it immediately.

Blech, blech, a thousand times blech.

Of course I got another beer.

But how this is a popular beer I have no idea.

And have done blind beer tastings and can always pick out the Bud.

Yech.

Probably the High Gravity Lager from Steel Reserve. It was sweet, along the lines of fresh sweet corn, and it had a much higher alcohol content than regular lagers, along the lines of a malt liquor.

Bud is cheap thats why it is so popular.I think it might be a step up from Shaefers I think I spelled that wrong which gives me a horrible head ache after one can.I know GB we are off topic but I say a bad beer is a strange beer.
And I think while we are at it we should expose the bad ones so we can save a couple of bucks by not investing in sewer beer.

LOL!

Can't say I'm surprised! I think, especially when it comes to beer, strange usually equals bad to peoples taste buds.

Perhaps I've gotten to far into a "judging" mindset, but usually the only time I consider a beer "bad" is when something has literally gone bad in it (spoiled, stale, soured, infected, etc). I try to appreciate each beer I have based on what it is and what it's supposed to be - even the big commercial brewery offerings (Although Bud does make me sick, not sure why, but even one bottle will do it. Just Bud, not even Bud light).

So if I get a sour beer, and it's supposed to be sour, I'll go with it. I may not like it and may consider it strange, but not necessarily bad.

We now return to weird beers...

Anyone else ever had a spelt ale?


John

I've had spelt. Didn't like the tartness.

I've had jalapeño beer before. It was, um, different.

i don't know if i've ever had a "strange" beer. there were good ones, bad ones, and everything in between.

i haven't seen them in a while, but i used to suck down "ed's cave creek chili beer". i loved them, especially with a plate of nachos.

nacho nacho maaaaaaaan.

i wanna be, a nacho man.

I'm pretty used to the fruit flavored lambics. But there are three strange beers I can think of, maybe more.

Stille Nacht by De Dolle - Tasted like a high alcohol content marmalade. One glass and I was leaping off couches.

Corsendonk Pater - Absolutely no lingering taste at all. You'd take a sip, enjoy the complex and delicate blend of flavors and then FOOMF, gone.

Midas Touch by Dogfish Head - Supposed to be a replica of a recipe found from an old mug excavated in King Midas' putative tomb. It's very flat and very honey like. Just like the old stuff, I suppose. Probably closer to mead.

Panil Barriquee - An Italian Flemish Sour Ale. Usually Flemish Sour Ales are weird but good, like exquisite (and in my opinion superior) champagnes. The Panil, however, was like drinking super sour candies without their sugar content.

Had a really fine IPA called Arrogant Bastard Ale. THe bottle insulted me enough to buy it and drink it...and it was good enough to do it again!
