I know Im going to catch some hell for asking this but here goes...
Why does everyone insist on smelling a beer before tasting it ?
To me, I dont want any preconceived notions about what it may or may not taste. You ever see a trailer for a movie and you think its going to be awesome. Then you go see it and realize its only so so ?
The aroma is a big factor, dont get me wrong, and adds to the total expereince of a new beer. But I don't drink beer for the smell ya know ?
