The more I read the posts on this forum, the more I wonder if I'm in the minority. So, I have to ask. Does anyone else out there like just normal, plain old traditional English-type Ales? I see lots of discussions on high alcohol barley wines but I just don't have a taste for them. I see lots of talk about American style IPAs with all of their fruity, citrusy C hops which I am fine with and do enjoy on occasion but I certainly can't spend a whole night drinking these. There's just too much there. Maybe the hard core lupulin addicts out there can do it but not me.
So, is there anyone out there that just likes a plain old 4 or 4.5% English Bitter or Pale Ale?
I put this in the Pub because it's meant just as a discussion, not as a criticism of any style or anyones taste. Something you'd chat about over a beer in a pub somewhere in the world. Am I alone? Are there others out there that don't want 11% beer or hops, hops and more hops or am I just becoming a boring old man?
