I'll start off;
Bud Ice

Red Stripe

Blue Moon Caramel Apple Spiced Ale

Natural Ice

Michelob

Shock Top Honey Crisp Apple

Heineken

Milwaukee's Best

Yuengling Black & Tan

Sweetwater 420

Bud Ice Light

Coors, Miller, Bud, etc. I can enjoy the taste, especially of High Life, on a blistering hot day, but for some reason these beers make me headachy so I usually got for a Gansett or Yeungling instead.
I'm with ya on Blue Moon and Shock Top too, yick.

Anything from:

Budweiser

Miller

Coors (except Blue Moon, which is ok and a gateway beer to craft brews)
Basically, anything from Big Beer.

Johnny Appleseed Hard Cider, its brewed Anheuser-Busch. I was given one, tasted like apple flavored Budwiser. I can taste it now as I write about it, just plain nasty.

Only two have I ever thrown away:
Schlitz Malt Liquor

Michelob Honey Wheat
If all I have is Meister Brau, or Schaefer Light I can drink it. Budweiser's my least favorite of the advertised beers. Old Milwaukee used to be advertised like Miller Lite and Coors Lite. It sat on the same shelf and cost the same. As soon as they quit advertising it, it went to the bottom shelf and was regarded as another Colt 45 or Olde English.
People will buy frigging Zima if it's advertised during a SuperBowl.

Bud lite

Bud Lite Straberryrita
I drink beer for enjoyment, not to get drunk, and seldom have more than one. As such Bud Lite is just horrifically foul!!
As for the strawberryrita, I've had medicine that tastes better than that horrific mess!!

Anything labeled "Lite","Light" or "Ultra".

MGD. I was given a free sixer as a perk from a hotel manager. I couldn't finish one.
I find it amusing that Iron City, which made the bottom of my top ten, falls on multiple people's worst lists. As with everything else, different strokes for different folks! Or different suds for different buds? Sorry, that was a bit of a stretch.

Schlitz, Schlitz, Schlitz - that stuff was so nasty it made Coors seem tasty.

For me, it's less about specific awful beers than specific types that I'm not fond of - specifically, mass-produced American-style lagers (Coors, A-B Budweiser, MGD, PBR) and some of the more extreme IPAs - I don't mind a certain level of hoppy bitterness (the late, lamented Ballard Bitter from Red Hook comes to mind...), but the current craze for hopping the crap out of beers needs to just stop.
That said, the only beer I've nearly spit out was an attempt by Rainier Brewing to cash in on the craft brewing craze with something called "Pigs Eye Pilsner". Tasted more like fermented varnish to me. Fortunately, it was only a one or two ounce sampler pour... :D No wonder they went under.

India Pale Ales.....all of them! I have tried maybe fifteen or twenty different IPA's and hated every damn one. I have some buddies that are beer aficionados and they are constantly trying to get me to like those hoppy ass beers....no offense to those of you who like them but to me they taste god-awful!

Agree about the India Pale Ales....tried many times, just can't get into them. Not a fan of Bud, Miller, Coors and their light beers either

I used to hate IPAs and would only drink the maltiest brews.
Something clicked a year or so ago and hops stopped tasting like earwax and more floral. Not sure what happened. But I don't mind.

A lot of brewers are also starting to emphasize the flavor and aroma of late hopping and dry hopping as opposed to the bitterness of early boil additions. Many IPA's, while still bitter, are really pushing the culinary aspect of hops and no longer concentrating on merely sucking the alpha acids out.
