Haffenreffer AKA "Headwrecker". God, that stuff tasted awful. We drank it back in the day because it was way stronger than regular american beers and a more efficient buzz, but that's not the worst I ever had.

My Old Man used to drink Carling Black Label in the GIQ bottles. So, one hot summer night when I was around 14 I stole a bottle from our screened porch where he stored them and that beer was probably 90 degrees. I go out into the woods with two of my cousins for our very first tastes of beer and it was so revolting that I ended up shooting foam rockets out of each nostril. I didn't drink another beer for about 3 years after that, but I discovered then that cold beer was quite an improvement and that not all beer tasted the same.

Recently, I was in a joint that had a bucket of beers on the bar and lo and behold there was a Black Label in the mix. I hadn't seen one for decades, but I had to buy one and have a toast to my Dad and the hard-won lessons of youth.

Yep. Still tasted gross.
