Discussing the relaunch of Let There Be Beer*today*reminded us of just how often we hear the statement above*uttered by people who dislike beer.

We ought*to bear in mind every time we*catch ourselves*complaining that mainstream beers are*bland or that, say, Sharp’s Doom Bar is too*sickly sweet, that,*for some, those beers are probably*still too bitter.
We’re quite cured of the desire to*‘convert people’ these days, but if*a beer sceptic*asked us for a suggestion, we might point them to a gentle-but-quirky, barely-bitter-at-all German or Belgian wheat beer.
“I just find it too bitter.”
