    Tough question, like the taste of both but kind of lean towards IBU 's of 50 and under of most styles

    I answered malt, but by no means am I saying I don't enjoy a good hoppy beer. I do have an issue with some of the overly hopped IPAs brewed here in the US though, especially when they use a ton of Northwest "C" hops; they tend to exacerbate my acid reflux.
