got that one one too - I laughed, but in defense of them, if they know nothing about science/biology/fermentation/(common sense-LOL!!) it's quite a benign statement. I think the guy actually asked me where I bought the alcohol, not what kind - comical nonetheless.

My brother came over when I was brewing today and I let him try a bit of wort before I started the boil. He looks up, pauses for a few seconds like he was really focusing on the taste then says "taste a bit yeasty to me...." his face turned beet red when I explained there was no yeast in it yet.

My first beer (admittedly not how I wanted it to turn out, but the following comment was still inaccurate), someone told me "it tastes like soy sauce."

I fail to find saltiness in beer.

To be fair, I've known several people that mix vodka, apple juice, and cinnamon, and then heat it up on a stove and call it home-made apple cider. They probably think that home-made beer would be similar.

Try it with captain morgan, apple cider, cinnamon, and a little bit of butter... very tasty!

Ha ha ha.! I love how this beer doesnt display ipa on it.This was kinda my entry level ipa gateway epiphony. I didnt like it at first then after a few more nights and trying it it was in my fridge weekly.I miss it now as i have a love for so many other ipa's.Gonna have to get back to this one- i just tried widmers seasonal citra blonde and it reminded me of two hearted a little,except session light and a tastey one also. Id have to admit until i read the bottom of the six pack carrier i wasnt going to buy it until i seen how the citra hops gave it the grapefruit and orange.Always nice for a hop to provide this than to be infused.

Buddy of mine, when tasting my Surly Bitter Brewer clone AFTER I explained a little about the British Bitter style --- "yada yada but with American hops" I included only that the ABV was close to Miller Lite in an attempt to appeal to most people's idea of beer, and keep in mind this guy drinks Torpedo regularly....

says...... "so this is like a hoppy Miller Lite"... No.... no it isn't.

I wonder what Thats all about? I had a friend tell me an imperial red ale was salty recently. I was so confused.

I've had a few commercial beers that have had a salty aftertaste.
