What is the absolutely stupidest thing anyone has said to you concerning how your beer tastes?

I gave some to my chiropractor, somehow expecting a somewhat intelligent comment, since he appears to be a somewhat intelligent person.

He said, "Wow, that stuff had quite a kick!"

My SWMBO, (love her to death), always takes her first taste of something new, and says, "Kind of heavy!"

Funny - I've had both of those comments too. I don't know if they're "stupid" comments, just people trying to describe what they're tasting without the correct words to describe what they like or don't like.

I get "dark" quite a bit too. Most of my beers aren't dark at all, but I guess anything that isn't piss-yellow and fizzy is "dark".

Them, "I thought it would taste different"

Me, "Different than what?"

Them, "I don't know, just different..."

Me, "Go home"

Them: "I don't like beer but I like your beer."
Me: "Thanks!"
In my head: "WTF? Then you like beer, genius."

My roommate, whenever we crack open a cream ale (PM'd with some flaked corn as adjunct) THAT HE BREWED, says "you can really taste the cream", like it had dairy or something. It's awesome.

About a superhopped IPA:
"Wow, you really used a lot of holiday spices!"

About a MALTY Scottish ale:
"This is REALLY hoppy! Good thing...I love hops!"

About anything darker than BMC (from the same guy more than once):
"This is supposed to be like Guinness, huh?"

About ALL of my beer (from a BMC-sworn friend);
"This is good beer...for someone else."
