He said he didn't like it and it should be more like Coors Original. I don't think I will bother with trying to convince them. Salt!?!? Really!?!?


Who cares? More for us!

It gets frustrating when people ask what that nice/strange/unusual, fruit like but not sweet flavor and aroma is coming from to which the answer is "hops, they get thrown in for bitterness, flavor and aroma" and the number of times the reply to that is "Why would you do that?"

I say just fine...more beer for us. :drink

Seriously, not everyone has to like good beer or any beer at all. You gave it an honest shot, so there's no need to keep trying.

I am definitely calling it quits trying to convert him. I think he is a lost call. It just makes me sad people not wanting to enjoy the good things in life. Oh well. Like you said,"More for us"!
