British researchers find a formula to figure out how much "enjoyment" a beer will give you.

" It’s E = – (0.62T2 + 39.2W2 + 62.4P2) + (21.8T + 184.4W + 395.4P + 94.5M - 90.25V) + 50(S + F + 6.4). E is enjoyment, T temperature, W how many days off before returning to work, P how many drinking buddies, M mood, V volume of the background music, and S and F — snacks and food."

I think we should call them up and tell them they are missing a variable, if it's a home brew or not.
