I think I agree here. I find most American brews and especially Micro brews to be overly hoppie and masking the malts and other flavors that make a true import good. There are a few micro brews out there that arent adding enough sugar to make hard candy and hops to make bitter beer but not very many.

As for the big assed cigar movement I dont get the 70 or 80 rg even many of the 60's lose flavor in comparison to similar tobacco blends in smaller cigars. Maybe the manufacturers are trying to compensate for something. It isnt good flavor though.

I agree that there are a number of beers or there that are out of balance. But yey, not everyone can make the next Pliny the Elder or Dreadnaught.
