Coors light is terrible, as is most light beer. Coors banquet beer is pretty good. I found a really old Olympia can under a house the other day. I find old cans every so often while crawling around houses. I have a small collection brewing.

Clicking around on the interwebz and I stumbled across an old advertisement for Olympia Beer. That whipped up some nostalgia because the first beer I ever drank was a room temperature Oympia beer...and it was awful! I wondered to myself how people could even like beer if it tasted like that. I think I was about 12 at the time. I struggled to drink the whole thing, and never was able to finish it. Now, Olympia beer wasn't actually too bad if you got a cold one (I would find out later), but the advertisement got me to thinking about awful beers.
Of course, this is all just opinion, but I think the most terrible beer I ever drank has got to be Stroh's beer, hands-down. That stuff was just plain putrid. One sip and a guaranteed GAG! I think a close second would have to be Miller beer (not Lite, but the regular strength stuff). If I drink one of those I get an instant pounding headache.
Now, ordinarily I probably should throw Buckhorn beer into this 'awful beer' category, but Buckhorn holds a spot in my heart because it was so cheap that I could actually afford to buy beer in college. Plus, you could get Buckhorn at 7-11 (bonus!). Granted, it was on the bottom shelf of the cooler, but hey...it was cheap!
Schlitz Malt Liquor was pretty terrible too, possibly even worse than Olde English 800, but at least you could get blasted on Olde English 800 before you barfed your guts out. Schlitz Malt Liquor was pretty much an insta-puke beer.
Heh, I can remember when Corona beer was on the bottom shelf at 7-11 right next to the Buckhorn beer. Then all the yuppies got a hold of it and made it popular. As beer goes, Corona still sucks, but they have a clever marketing scheme (suckers! LOL!)
I'm sure I'm missing some, but what are the worst beers you've ever had??
