* Apparently the beer served in slum taverns in the city of Haven in the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' novels fits this description -- at least according to Alberich, who becomes a master at not really drinking the stuff when he's undercover. Skif, a child of the slums, doesn't seem to have a problem with it (though he agrees with Alberich that the ''wine'' served in those taverns is "goat piss").

** On the same note, both the US and the UK have low-end fortified wine, aka "bum wine" in the US. Infamous for its low price, large bottle size, sky-high ABV, and revolting taste (some varieties are disgustingly sweet, others don't bother putting on a nice face and just rely on the fact that you'll be too drunk to notice how disgusting it is after a couple swigs), it is the drink of choice for homeless (or seriously impoverished) alcoholics and the absolute poorest of college students. Famous varieties in the US include MD 20/20 (contrary to opinion, it does not stand for "Mad Dog", but rather "Mogen David"[[note]]"Shield of David" in Yiddish-influenced Hebrew. The wine ''used'' to be Kosher wine; while Kosher wine in America has a reputation for cloying sweetness and not much flavor, it was never noted for being bum wine. The main market for the sickly-sweet Kosher wine has always been Jews getting it for certain ritual purposes and to have around to drink in general during Passover, as between the ban on ''chametz'' (which knocks out beer and most spirits distilled from grain) and the Ashkenazi stringency of ''kitiniyot'' (which, provided that they are Ashkenazi--and AllJewsAreAshkenazi, right?--prevents Jewish drinkers from turning to all the other spirits distilled from grain, as well as rice wines like sake) leaves a Jewish drinker with the options of Kosher wine, vodka ''if it's distilled from potatoes'', rum, and the more exotic pure fruit wines and brandies. MD gave up all pretense of being Kosher wine a long time ago.[[/note]]), Cisco (known for its brutal hangovers, also the most popular among college students), Wild Irish Rose (commonly believed to have been the inspiration for the Neil Diamond hit "Cracklin' Rosie"), Night Train Express (immortalized by ''The Blues Brothers'' and Guns N' Roses), and Thunderbird (infamous for being disgusting even by bum wine standards and for the catchy jingle that used to accompany radio ads for it), while the UK has Buckfast Tonic Wine (notorious for both its popularity among [[LowerClassLout neds]] and the many, many attempts that have been made to curb the sale of it). They are less prevalent than they used to be, however, as numerous cities have either outlawed or severely restricted their sale.

* Spain is not known for its beer (although good Spanish beers do exist, such as Legado de Yuste (Legacy of Yuste) or El Burro de Sancho(Sancho's Donkey), but if you ever travel to Spain, avoid Cruzcampo and Mahou like the plague. To give you an idea of how awful they are, most bars serve it at almost freezing temperature in order to nullify the taste. Nevertheless, you ''will'' feel their awful, bitter aftertaste for a while.
