Homebrew to me seems more potent than commercial beer, which for me is usually Guinness. Whether that's 4.2% vs the average 5.5% of my brew, or some other effect, I'm not sure. I have a friend who swears he nearly blacks out after 4 of my brews, and is fine after much more normal brew. He swears it's because homebrew is more natural, so the body knows what to do with the alcohol more quickly.

I have no idea...

If you've spent your "drinking life" consuming bud light at 4.2% abv.....or any commercial macro beer in a similar range the homebrew we make which tends to average around, what, 6% is going to keep you in the teeth a bit. You'll get used to it.
