I have to say, so far the 80 shilling I've made is my least favorite style. What do you guys dislike?

BMC and any yellow beer with there exceptions: hefe, kolsh, and lambic.

My rule of thumb: The more difficult it is to see through, the better.

Some people might think I'm crazy, but I'm not a big fan of Belgian Wits. I don't really like "banana esters" in my beer... if I wanted to taste bananas, I would eat a banana!

I wondered the same thing. My scottish ale is an 80. I love it.

I'm going to take a wild guess that its too peaty for his taste.

The taste is too abrasive for me. It's just not enjoyable.

I'm becoming less and less a fan of flavored beers generally.

P-Funk, I love ya man, but your Choco-Vanilla combo does nothing for me

I think a lot of this may stem from my mocha stout, which I just can't drink. Too much coffee, too much chocolate, not enough beer.

Mind if I have a boo at the recipe you used? It's supposed to be a fairly mild mannered beer.
