Nothing wrong with a bit of skunked beer. In fact, I kinda like it.

Bottom line:

Couple things I will get out of the way....

1. I am not a beer snob. I love domestic light beers, and I love microbrews, dark thick beers.....I pretty much like all beer.
2. I dont know much about beer.

Here is my question - I have always heard people talk about skunked beers, like if its cold, then goes back to room temp, and then gets cold it wont taste as good, or will give you a hangover.

I ask this question, as over the last weekend, I was playing golf in the backyard with some buddies, emptied out a bunch of beers into a plastic tub filled with ice. There are probably a dozen beers in that tub, in which the ice has obviously melted at this point. They have been sitting in the tub in the backyard in the shade.

Will these beers be okay to drink if I chill them back down?

(they are miller lite, people with cultured palates please refrain from making comments dissing domestic lite beers)

I have for most of my life drank beer that has been cold and then returned to room temperature back and forth many times over.  I have had beer stored in my basement for more than a year (left over from sisters wedding) that was brought up and chilled and consumed.
So as far as safety and taste, I can see no reason why your beer will not be as good as it was the day you bought it.

I also like all beers from light to almost gravy heavy.  I prefer light beers and i prefer the cheap stuff the best.  In fact I am going to a bar later this afternoon that has Busch for 75 cents a can.  This is what I will drink.
Its good and cheap.  Two things I can really appreciate.

Busch is my go to beer

Pre-skunked. Good to go. :lol: j/k

I actually like Busch, but then again, I don't mind skunked beer.

NO! No. Nonononononono. No.

Unless you like to barf. The taste will be heinous and not worth it.

Don't go there.

You snob! (I agree though) That's why I only use them to cook. Work just fine for that, skunkiness doesn't carry into the food

As said earlier in the post, light effects beer.  Clear bottles are the worst.  You will get the skunkiest taste from a clear bottle. Green bottles don't block enough light either.  That is why beers like Heineken, Becks, or Pilsner Urquil have a skunky aftertaste.

Tempuratures also effect beer.  If you chill a beer and then warm it up, and chill it again, it's going to have an advers effect.

The best way to avoid these problems is to drink Milwaukee's Best or Natural Light.  Those beers already taste like shit, and its very difficult to get them to taste worse than they already do.  ;)

Depends on the beer-betcha Mic Ultra deosn't skunk, 'cause it's skank(y).

Beer Advocate has an ongoing thread on really bad beers (in the taster's opinion) called "Drain Pours."

Never had a bad beer in my life and many were warmed and chilled over and over again.  In fact when I buy cold beer at the store, sometimes I am to lazy to put it up right away.  So, it gets put in the fridge when I want to put in.  Could be an hour, could be two days later.  Never once had any beer change its taste or appearance.  It has always been perfectly fine.
I drink beer every day, so I do have some experience with this.

I once knew/worked with a guy that had me drive to "Timbucktoo" and back, because he could not drink what was in the store.  We were working out of town.  Everyone was cool with whatever was available.  Not this f***ing beer snob.  I must have driven 25 miles until he settled for something and still complained because it was not what he really liked.  We let him go shortly thereafter.  Not because of the beer, but because he was an asshole.


Long live Natural Light and Busch.  Its as good as any other and half the price. It also has a crisp, light non-skunk taste and smell.
Now if you insist, and you are buying, I will drink whatever you like.

Nothing personal, but your taste buds are dead.

Every can tastes a bit different... some have subtle hints ranging from apple, grape, plum, peanut, duck liver, old cottage cheese, citrus, polymers, asparagus, yeast, or graphite.

Graphite? Like the stuff they use to make pencils with?

Yep. If you've ever chewed through a pencil... that taste is in this beer.

Maybe, but my wallet is relatively healthy and I am satisfied with the beers I like. Oh and I prefer a can any day over a bottle.  So, no silly light gets in mine.
This is a prime example of a beer snob.  If I don't like what they like, there is something wrong with me?

I've only ever chewed through a pencil once - stopped before I got near the graphite.
