I'm not fond of hoppy beers, but don't have the taste buds to be able to distinguish their origin. On the other hand, I don't care for flavorless beers of which Bud Select comes to mind. I like a malty flavor with a bit of hops. I've been to a few microbreweries, but almost all of the beers that I have had in them have not been to my taste. I enjoy tasting something different from time to time and once in a while I find something that I like. I tried some Shandies last summer, but thought that they covered up the beer flavor with citrus. I think that they are for people who don't like beer.
