I know where he's coming from. I always try and order local beer on tap from a bar, but there have been times that I've quickly switched to bottles or even BMC.

So, are you saying my beer is crap, and you know that for sure?

Where did that come from. I don't know you or anything about your beer.

I don't know, seems like you are making assumptions ... or trolling again.

I make a general statement about drinking some bad beer and you assume that I'm referring to you?

that was a general statement, eh? It wasn't pointed at all? Wow. I guess I just misinterpreted it.  ::)

Not a problem at all. I know how things can be misinterpreted on the web. Cheers.

I invited him to my brewery, if he shows up that should be enough to convince/encourage/convert him. Assuming he likes my beer.  ;) I also shouldn't accuse the guy of drinking Bud Light. He was buying a double wide of Sutter Home at the time. ::)

Salty. Probably the guy didn't know how to articulate "bitter" or any other number of flavors. But I know about the negative comment bugging ya. One can have 99 people tell them what a badass job they're doing and then latch onto the single poor response. :-\

I feel this same way about playing music live.  I have super high expectations for myself, so when I screw up, I can't help but think that every musician in the crowd notices.  And it's only them that notice too, usually.  Played a show on Saturday, crowd was way into it, but I played shaky in the first song, only a couple people maybe noticed at all, but still I can't get over it...fixated on the small, negatives...

So... does it taste salty to you?

I agree with major that a hoppy beer with high sulfate content can have a bit of a mineral-like taste.  Maybe this is what that guy is perceiving as salt.

No it does not taste salty to me.

On the other side I do not have the most refined pallet ether.
I have been brewing with same water for more then 3 years with similar salt adjustments.
This is first "salty" feedback.

If that's the case, Leos, I wouldn't worry about it.  It's one negative comment out of multitudes of positive comments.  Take it with a grain of salt.............Ho Ho Hoooooo!!!

I was just about to ask...
Did he order it the way my father-in-law orders his beers...
With 3 olives & a dash of salt???
 ;D

Seriously, though...
With that good of a track record, I wouldn't let it bug ya.
