just so i’m clear, are you saying there isn’t a midpoint between ‘tastes like beer’ and ‘hay and wet bread’?

i knew this would bring the beer penoids out


#1602

is the bread always wet?


#1603

What would that midpoint be? “Fruity”? “Bitter”? Is “floral” a acceptable, or is that too far?

Beer is a complex drink and there are a myriad of flavour compounds and respective associations that go along with that. That’s why people in this thread enjoy drinking different beers. Even if you’re not specifically picking them out or able to name them, they make it what it is. Seems silly to criticise someone for picking out hay as a flavour descriptor, it’s not like they wrote “it’s like a long-ago childhood spent playing hide and seek in a hay loft”.


#1604

heading up to York tonight for the first time in years. any new places to check out other than old favourites like Pivos?


#1605

what does hay taste like?


#1606

What does garlic taste like?


#1607

Straw.


#1608

do you personally eat an equal amount of garlic and hay?


#1609

No.

But my point was that hay tastes of hay. It’s not about comparing it to something else. I have smelled hay. I have eaten foods cooked in hay. I have drunk beer made with hay. And I can detect a hay-like flavour in other beers.


#1610

classic straw man arguement


#1611

do you reckon that description means anything at all to most people though? i mean i know it’s posted on a website to be read by other penoids but still, not sure how anyone can read this stuff and not find it embarrassing.


#1612

Maybe it wouldn’t ring a bell for a lot of people, but like you say, it’s not like it’s on a promo label on a Tesco shelf.

I don’t think being into the penoidy end of beer appreciation is any more embarrassing than any other subject of interest, but that’s just me.
