Like many people, I don’t like bitter tastes. Don’t like detergent, paracetamol, hops, battery acid, etc. Malt, on the other hand, is delicious; its sweet, rich, aromatic and when brewed into barley wine is fantastic - just too strong.
So what is it with brewers that they insist beer must be bitter? If not hops, then they have to put something else in to “bitter” it.
My old Dad, when he was alive, brewed excellent beer and tried zero hop ales a few times, they were outstanding. Everyone who tried them agreed and wanted more. Neighbours would always ask when he was going to brew another batch.
Brewers: Please, please, get it into your heads that there are many who would love an ale that hadn’t been spoiled with nasty bitter tastes.
Consider this: Which sells more, dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
