Thoughts on New Beers: Is Taste Being Infantilized?

Have “craft” breweries gone too far with new “sweet” flavoured beers appearing every day? Is this a great debate of principle or just a question of taste? Purists, who swear only by the “Reinheitsgebot,” the famous decree on “beer purity,” will state that all these Haribo strawberry, pound cake, lemon drop, pecan nut, cheesy crisp, Chelsea bun, or chocolate croissant flavoured drinks bear absolutely no relation to what we used to call “beer.” However, as we said above, at the end of the day, it’s all just a matter of taste.
