I am going to participate in this delightful beer discussion "by proxy," as it were. Yes, I will explain that.
My older son Jeff (the computer programmer one) has had beer tasting and rating as a hobby for some time now. In fact, on his personal website he has even set up a section ("Beers Rated") where he lists and rates the beers he has sampled, along with personal commentary, available by following his links, on what he likes about
each of them.
Of course I "helped" him in the tasting-and-rating process (nice work if you can get it) (grin), so his ratings will pretty much reflect my own thoughts, hence his "proxy" opinions on those beers will be pretty much my own.
I believe, if I understand the forum rules correctly, that it's okay for me to provide this link to his website. Jeff said it's okay with him for me to do so. So if you're interested, see what you think of Jeff's beer opinions, which will be, indirectly, my own :https://jsfhome.tripod.com
(and page down to "Beers Rated").
(BTW, if anyone's interested, and I can't imagine why anyone would be, that photo of Jeff at the top of his first website page looks exactly
like I did at that age, even to including the beardwork. Sometimes dads and sons look remarkably alike, and that's us. So age-progress that photo of Jeff by about
30 years, and that's me today. Again, only if you're interested!).
(Whoa! You may have to copy-and-paste, along with dropping the "http://" part, then search, his website address, as it doesn't seem to want to link)
