So, I picked up a bottle of Delerium Tremens a few weeks ago, and didn't rate it at all.In fact it tasted like Aids on a salty cracker.
Call me uncultured or whatever the fuck, but it's probably the most disappointed I've been after drinking a highly recommended beer, especially a pale ale.
shareforth experiences with this beer, and any other examples of liquid hate Over-rated beers?
In all honesty, the most overrated beer in the universe is Rogue's Chipotle Ale. Highly reviewed, but tastes like the fucking bottom of an ashtray that someone shit on after eating 2 pounds of ludefisk.
Fuck that shit.
If by PBR you are referring to Pabst Blue Ribbon then it is not over rated. No matter how scathing a review you were to write it would no over rate a can of that turtle piss.
PBR is not as bad as it could be, Budweiser and bud light all taste like someone drank about a 12 pack and piss watery beer right into the can.
Most overated, Guiness, fucking nasty shit.
Have you ever smelled turtle piss? And by turtle I mean snapper.
Heineken IS skunk piss, that is exactly what it smells like. Who the fuck drinks that shit?
And no I have never smelt...smelt?...smelled... turtle piss. I'll give it a shot next time I'm around a turtle.
Dont be silly, drink it in the UK or Ireland, its the propper stuff here. However, as with everything, people have different tastes, but I would be more likely to listen to some one being negative than positive. I would always still make my own mind up however.
Draught like actually from a keg, not The draught canned version, is not so bad, so yeah maybe.
I like Guinness, but everyone says it tastes much better in Ireland. It's not that popular here.
Heineken is also popular here, and is in the top 10 worst beers ever. It tastes like enema juice. I did some computer work for this rich dude that's a board member at the company I work at, and he gave me a CASE of Heineken as a token of appreciation (I couldn't charge him because it was during work hours). I left it in an alley and assumed that some homeless guys would eventually find it and fight over it.
Would that be new or used enema juice? Because I can well imagine there is quite bit of difference in the taste between the two.
Well, I guess it could be worse then.
As for one I was disappointed in, Fin Du Monde (End of The World), a Quebec brew that was very trendy for a while, but fuck me, the French simply cannot brew beer. At 9% it sounded like fun, and I bought a 6, I drank one, then kept the rest as 'shut the hell up' beers.
"need a beer, need a hit? here, have a shitty beer, some salvia, and shut the hell up"
Im more of a pale ale drinker, but trying to find a nice cheep one is hard.
I used to drink tui, but only out the swappers and kegs, the stuff made in aulckland was shit once you had tried the real stuff.
Most Trappist beers I find them not my thing mainly I find the too sweet and disappointing.
Apparently I have to, as I am over 40, and these are me Carsberg years. Fuck no, that shit is swill.
For me the most overrated would have to be budweiser. That shit tastes foul
Anything Delirium puts out is overrated. Don't get me wrong. It's decent, but not worth $6.50/8ish oz.
Also, with the exception of Sommersault, everything New Belgium puts out. Primarily looking at you, Fat Tire.
I honestly will drink MHL over Fat Tire, and it's by no means a matter of price.
Same goes for Blue Moon.
Yeah, like you said a bit better, I don't mind a strong beery taste, but they are both way over the top. The same brewery puts out one that is quite good, I forget the name, but it is Quebecquois for 'angels bathwater'. It is cloudy, probably a wheat beer, and has an almost cidery taste.
"rye, tequila, cider, wine, moonshine, fuck, I'm out of beer!"
