We could tell you, but that wouldn't be very elitist of us.

My biggest problem with other people & my homebrews is simple, the tendency around here to expect very big, heavily hopped ales. I'm convinced some people can't taste anything that is under 6% and doesn't use Cascades.

What I find amusing about the latter, my Milds & Browns are always floaters at meetings.

When tasting other people's HB, I try to set my own likes & dislikes aside and evaluate it by the intended style. I can honestly say, "This is an excellent example of the style, (even if it's a hefe or trippel)" But, sometimes a sample can leave you gasping for breath. "Too much spruce, you think?"

I have two major reactions to my homebrew; One is from craft beer aware friends, and the other from lager water drinkers.

Those who enjoy craft beer for the most part enjoy my beer. But the more important factor is the detail they can describe. It was a little too sweet for me, fruity, malty, bitter. They understand there is more to beer than just, "yeah it's beer".

From BMC drinkers i usually get a, "yeah that's not bad" and i periodically look to see if they have even taken more than 2 sips hah. For the most part I hear, "This is good" and they continue to drink or, "it's ok" and they hold the beer like a hood ornament on a car hood.

But I think the best response is, "Hey this is good, and I don't like beer" and asking for a second pint. That can make ya grin.
