That's because I mostly don't drink beer.  If I wanted to toss sour, 
astringic liquid down my throat, I'd do it properly and suck on a 
lemon.  There's a few exceptions, like double chocolate stout, and 
banana bread beer, and waggle dance, but mostly it just tastes like what 
you get if you pour warm water and a dash of fairy liquid into a 
recently used and, not yet washed, roasting tin, then swill it around, 
sieve, pour and serve.
