Does this mean you will stop knocking something you haven't tried? Nobody is asking you to endorse it either.
I don't think I've ever "knocked" it, if I understand your meaning. I have expressed great skepticism and asked for proof. I will likely continue that until I see proof that inspires me to try it. And even then, how will I know I've achieved anything since as far as I know there is no definition if "IT".
I think that if you don't understand what IT is at this point, then you never will. Fresh lingering grain, like sticking your face in a fresh sack of grain and chewing on a couple of the kernels; standing in a wheat or barley field in the summer with a light breeze blowing in your face...
Besides that, you seem so reluctant to "know" what "IT" is. It's just a pure, rich malt flavor; flavor that malt was intended to impart. Ever had a fresh Bitburger or Ayinger? IT is there and in your face. If you can't taste that, then you never will. Might be like some people get soap from cilantro and other don't.
Not trying to be a jerk, just that you've mentioned multiple times now over the course of this whole thing about there not being a definition. Throw that mentality out the window and drink the beer! You will know.
