I tend to lump beer into three categories: Fine (Edit:Of superior quality), OK, and Terrible

Terrible has three subsets, and they are not all cheap gas station beers. There is terrible - burns my stomach (Sam Adams/Yuengling). There is terrible - way overpriced (Heineken/Some African Malt Liquor I Don't Remember). Then there is terrible - Dag Nasty.

My all-time Dag Nastiest beer used to Stella Artois, but it turned out I just got a bad can of it off a street vendor in Budapest. It has quickly been moved to the fine category for beers to have with dinner.

My new all-time Dag Nastiest is Old Peculier. It was like drinking a beer from some sweaty guy's ass crack. I haven't been brave enough to try it again it was so bad. So I have no way of knowing if I got a bad bottle (see Stella above). But that is my vote.

I like Old Peculier, and would kill for a good south african beer
(castle or windhoek lager).

Terrible? most american beers.

Sam Adams is probably the worst beer I've ever had. In all fairness to Sam Adams it was early on in my beer drinking days and my tastes have changed. I haven't been willing to try it again tho. Guinness is the best. It's really the only beer I look forward to drinking. If not Guinness, I don't care, but it's usually PBR or some area micro brew.

Edit: Kokanee was my favorite beer in college.

I stopped reading there and didn't read any replies. If you think the best beer is "fine" or "ok", then what's the point of starting a beer thread?

I didn't mean fine as "How's your day? Fine", I meant fine as in "of superior quality." (For me, Chimay Rouge)

OK (and I do mean just OK), is the stuff you drink when it's the only one available (For me, Bud bottles).

They are Dutch and horrible!

Guinness has less alcohol than pretty much every Canadian beer, only 4.0%. See for yourself...

There are "bad" tasting beers because of strong, offensive taste. That can be the result of storage and shipping problems. Every English beer I had in London was far better than they taste in Houston.

But, what truly offends me are the beers with no taste or flavor at all. Miller Lite is certainly a pathetic excuse for beer. I'm sure that if the USA had any sort of standard for what can be called a "beer", Miller Lite would fail to qualify.
