Default Beer you just don't like/can't drink

My son asked me yesterday what my favourite beer or type of beer was.
After a bit of thought and coming to the conclusion that picking a favourite beer or even a favourite type of beer would be difficult, I said that it would be easier to name the beers that I really can't abide.
I really can't drink either Becks or Kronenbourg 1664 as I find the taste of them truly horrible. I realise that this is purely subjective but I'm interested to hear what beers or types of beers that folks just don't like.

Over to you folks

Wheat beers.
Anything with vanilla in it - if I want an icecream I'll eat an icecream.
Beer with fruit in it. Disgusting.
Ale, ale, glorious ale,
Served up in pewter it tells it's own tale.
Some folks likes radishes,
Some curl-eye kale,
But give I boiled parsnips
And a girt dish o taters
And a pint of good ale.

Excluding ones that are just faulty. Don't think there are any I can't drink, although some beers that are heavily flavoured with coffee or smoke (ranchbier or grodziskie) I have a low threshold for and a half is enough.

Tuborg. One of the only beers I know that gives you a hangover while you're drinking it.
When you are dead, you don't know you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid

Anything that is sold as "extra cold"

Lager, well the flavourless excuse for lager that is made here.

Budweiser, Fosters etc
I drink nothing, rather than that sort of rubbish.

I tried a very expensive raspberry beer in Belgium once. It was so bad the missus liked it. Yuk.

The only beer I've ever poured down the sink was that banana bread stuff they sell in Tesco 🤢
