Ugliest design or in ugly condition? Sounds like fun!

I'll take a picture when I get home, unless someone wants to help me out. The green and orange Garden State can from Hammonton (yes I know there were two). As an added attraction, the beer inside was every bit as ugly as the can was on the outside.

Columbia Ale, for it's over simplistic design and poor color selection.

Photo credit goes to Beer Cans Plus.

Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

A few to nominate. The L &M is just an ugly pairing of colors. The two others are just so plain they are ugly

I don't know if cans from USBC II are elegible, and I don't want to nominate too many, but these two are the "cream of the crop" from the tab cans--although truth be told, there are A LOT of cans from Vl. 2 that could be considered.
The Urho cans is the absolute worst can. A hideous pairing of color and design. It is almost revolting to gaze upon--kind of a Medusa of beer cans.

The fighting Irish cans looks like a monkey in an Irish costume. Like a 7 year old made the design. Maybe the graphic designer didn't like Norte Dame....?

It's tough to find 30's cans for this list and I actually sort of like this can. But I think it deserves a nomination here, especially when contrasted with the early black, yellow and silver design. What were they thinking?
