    Yeah, we get it. Some people like simple beer and don't want anything else.

    "It tastes like a Christmas tree in a glass!"
    "It tastes just like Yoohoo (or Chocolate Milk)!"
    "It tastes like the time I tried to eat grandma's top dresser drawer potpourri when I was 2!"
    "It tastes like Fruity Pebbles!"
    "It tastes just like weed!"

    My friends' mom (who hasn't drank alcohol in at least 25 years) had a sip of Lagunitas Hop Stoopid and said, with a grimace, "That's like drinking a pine tree."

    -"I like that craft beer, son, but it makes me have to s$!#." My dad enjoys craft beer, but it always causes him to swiftly sit on the toilet the next day. Also, the first time I had Raging Bitch IPA, I likened it to robot pee.

    My brother-in-law says that ruination tastes like a wet diaper. They all drink high life and the only beer I can get everyone to enjoy to date was breakfast stout.

    Easy to see from these posts that craft isn't going to become mainstream drinking. Good thing as there wouldn't be enough to go round! If people prefer beers brewed with cattle feed grade barley and rice/corn let them get on with it and leave the brewing quality grain to those who appreciate it.

    My wife's analysis of every IPA on the planet: "tastes like perfume"

    My response: "This would be a hell of a lot cheaper than you drinking perfume!"

    I have a friend who drank some BMC, but was more of a rum & coke guy than anything. I was always introducing him to new stuff, some he liked and some he didn't, but he was always willing to try. Recently I gave him a Rodenbach and he loved it. He constantly remarks how he never thought he'd enjoy sour beers, but he's glad I got him into it.

    Two nights ago I bought a Guinness in a bar for a friend who isn't a beer drinker and had never had one... He said:
    "This is ok, but not nearly as good as those other rich and chocolatey beers you had me try... Do they have any of those?"
    ... I was a proud beer nerd that night!

    A family friend was over a while back and I was drinking Supplication. Knowing he wouldn't like it I told him to take a sip. Now, whenever he comes over he asks, "Do you still drink that skunky beer?" and asks if I have any Heinies for him.

    Actually I also get the fish aroma sometimes from a beer. Not fishy like the seafood section at the grocery store, but fishy like when someone catches one on a boat. I think it's a weird bacterial flaw either in the bottle or the serving glass.
