when I brew a style I usually go buy a couple bottles of the same style to drink while brewing and compare to mine later. I pour a commercial and a Homebrew and then ask some seasoned friends to compare and pick which glass they like best. A simple blind taste test. You get pretty straight forward answers. I've had enough of my HB picked that I feel that my results are comparable to commercial brews and I'm still improving.
I have an beer store close by that carries over 500 worldwide beers of all styles which makes it really easy to be able to compare commercials to my HB.
I think that as beer enthusiasts we are our own biggest critics. My friends don't hold their beer in their mouths feeling/tasting/smelling it for microflaws like I do.

That's less about seeking flaws than it is the same moronic psychology that forces a rage over a stupid laughing toy doll. That is worth about 10% of what people pay.

Those folks that say they don't like beer... My simple response to them is that they haven't yet found the right beer. My fellow homebrewing buddies make beer, and decent beer at that, but I'm not convinced they understand why. What I have learned from brewing is why I like what I like, and subsequently what other people may like according to what they typically drink, BMC or whatever else.
