this is also true for commercially brewed beers. gotta say there were times when i wasnt a big fan of guiness or IPAs however i pretty much just do a dark and an AIPA these days. had a couple of blokes round last night, one couldnt stand the AIPA but loved the dark ale, the other bloke loved both.I think it has a lot to do with personal taste and what one is used to.
I have tried many home brews that the person brewing it says it is the best, only to find it virtually undrinkable.
iam not a massive fan of these outback jack, great northern full on dextrose styles but if theres nothing else they sure beat coca cola or VB.
but a poorly fermented batch that got too hot and tastes like bananas or an infected batch with vinegar taint iam sure all but the saddest alcos would frown upon.
