What's the WORST beer you've ever had....hands down?

In my case, it was Billy Beer, followed closely by "Cost Cutter" that Kroger used to market

Billy Beer? You actually drank some of that stuff? Eewwww. And here I thought you were a man of taste . Oh, I'll bet you drank it on a dare!

Nope, I was a teenager and it was all I could get

The ironic part was that "Cost Cutter" was better

Boh (Bohemian beer). It was the worst tasting beer I've ever had. Although I drank it during some of my most memorable times in my youth.

This beer was made for the Saskatchewan market since 1926, and only recently released to the rest of Canada. Check out some of the comments from this rating site:

' guess it has to grow on you, but I'm not much of a beer drinker, so I admit, I lack credibility for this discussion.
