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".
