How about least favorite style of beer?

The only ones I can think of that I don't really enjoy are 1A, 1B, and 1C!

Hefeweizen or pretty much any wheat based beer.

I don't care for really sour beers, like Rodenbach Grand Cru. Acidity is good, I just don't want them to taste like salad dressing. Fruit beer is another turn off to me. I hate when beer tastes like fruit. I also don't care for "Lite" beer.

Fruit beers and English browns are waste of malt, imho.

whoa - never heard anyone say they don't like English Brown - never heard anyone say its their fave either - most people are kinda agnostic to that style.  interesting.

I can appreciate sours, I just would never brew one.

I don't like the weaker Scottish ales (/60 and /70), don't like the 1A, B, and C either, (tho D and E are faves) but I can't stand FRUIT BEERS.

Not a bourbon drinker, so anything that has been in a bouron barrel.

Just - don't - like.

I hate when beer tastes like fruit.

Damn, how did I forget that one?  I'm with ya, Keith!  And pretty much most styles of English beer, too.

FTR record I am marking up my enemy list. Hefeweizen haters, non-bourbon drinkers ... maybe this thread was a bad idea.  :P

Kidding, of course. ;) (I love Hefeweizens and, especially, bourbon - but I love you guys too.)

I don't know, some days nothing sounds good.   :o  Thin beers I'll drink but I don't like them nearly as much.  I had a couple of blueberry wheat beers by Leinenkugle(sp?) this fall and it tore my intestines up for a couple of days... so I shudder now whenever I think about a wheat beer.   >:( :D  I wasn't impressed with the fruit in it either.  But with that said, sometimes I like the esters provided by yeast.  ;D

Yeah, I couldn't make it. I didn't even get to enter a beer in the comp.  :(
Hope you guys had fun. Everyone I talked to had a blast. Hopefully next year!
