Well, in that case I don't recommend pumpkin beers, or IC Light. especially not the latter. I also don't recommend Steel Reserve.

 I'll certainly stay away from those beers. Can you share any recipes from your brewery?

Anyone who knows me knows that I am very free to hand out any recipe. Send me a PM and I will be happy to oblige. But I'm not going to post my recipes in this titled thread.  ;)

Sorry, I would never ask you to post a recipe in a "Worst Beer" thread. My bad.

Victory Helios. Maybe I just don't like Belgian farmhouse ales, but I gave it a shot because I like pretty much everything else that Victory makes.

This one tasted like it came straight from the horse. If it's this, Bud Light, or using a cheese grater on my head I'm going to ask how sharp the cheese grater is.

You can't say it.  ;)  BTW: +1 on the pumpkin beer. Keep those spices for pumpkin pie. I love that stuff!! ;D

Word
Up!

Pumpkin pie = WIN

You know what cinnamon is good in?
Apple Pie!

You're sounding like you've had one too many pumpkin beers :)

I suppose you are correct as ONE Pumpkin beer is one too many  :P

I will admit, when I had a Heineken in Amstrdam, it wasn't half bad.  But, I guess I am thinking of the green bottle skunk bomb that we get here in America, I can see the cans being better but I probably won't ty it.  Maybe Corona should have been my answer, because even in Mexico that stuff is terrible.

This topic dredges up memories of college parties, kegs, and getting the most beer for our meager bucks.  And I only graduated 4 years ago.

Natural "Natty" Ice and Natty Light top the list.  I think a case ran us about $9.  When we wanted a "better" beer, we would get.... Keystone Light or Keystone Ice.  $11/case.  There was one day one of my roommates bought a case of Schlitz... $6/case.  The list goes on and includes names such as Milwakee's Best, and Lionshead.  With the exception of Keystone, I got sick from everyone of those beers, and it wasn't just the low tolerance.  I won't even go into the 40s we would on occasion.

Thank god I discovered better beers and someone bought Yuengling one night.    I still don't mind the occasional bud or miller, though, but mention Natty and I cringe. 

Oh and I forgot one!  MGD 64.  Tastes like piss water.

I have to admit that pumkin beers are hard to get excited about.  Maybe I haven't had any good examples yet but they leave much to be desired IMHO.  or maybe my IMNSHO.  ;)

Pumpkin soup, thats what beers with Jack-o-lanterns, Pumpkins, Goblins, Gouls and trick or treaters on the lable belong in.

Memorable thin watery beer was a Dunkel I ordered at Old Chicago here.  It was almost
5 bux a glass... :o...

and memories of Buckhorn Beer keep floating to the top like cream on milk....LEFT IN THE SUN.

a pale ale I made with hops I found growing along the creek.  

it was my house pale ale 'recipe' if you will with these forsaken hops sub'd in.

My dad put it best when he described it as licking the floor of a dirty tire shop.

A couple "award winning" homebrews from a relative. That made me realize I'm not too bad of a brewer.

As for pumpkin beer - try it as a chaser with Jamesons. Not too bad.

Since we are bashing pumpkin beers, we may be in luck this fall.  My daughter wanted to make pumpkin chip cookies last night.  I scoured the city.  There is no pumpkin to be had.  The shortage from the last two years of rainy weather in illinois is killing the supply.  Maybe Libby's won't be able to spare enough for the breweries.  I prefer my pumpkin in pie.  How else can I justify all the Cool Whip I am going to eat this fall 8)

Any shop beer from my local HBS.

They boil the grains, and put the glass fermenters right up against the WEST facing windows.  No temp control, even when they use lager yeasts.

The funny thing is, they donate beer like this to our annual club competition.  You can tell their kegs; they have all these plastic cups full of beer with maybe a sip or two taken out before the cup was put down.
