I like that kind of beer. Zwettler Original is a lot like that. That's probably my go-to lager when I'm back home.

A beer that doesn't give me a mild sense of dread just before take a sip

What makes one beer great-tasting for me often isn't the same thing as another beer. Stouts and Gose beer both taste great, but not for the same reasons.
But I think quaffability is my favorite quality for beer. I like beer I can drink a liter of. Wouldn't want to do that with most Imperial IPAs or Quads. I'm also a fan of maltiness, so I like a lot of dunkel lagers/weizens.

Something light and refreshing, with perhaps a toasted quality to it.

I have transcended to liquid hop extract, anything less and you're a baby who only drinks sweet things.

Depends on the style but for the most part: a quality malt backbone for other ingredients to stand up to, certain qualities of fruit or other plants (pine, herbs, flowers), yeast esters that provide unique qualities, and low-medium to medium carbonation; I don't want to feel like I'm drinking liquid pop rocks.

As long as it's different, a beer is perfect.
I'm tired of mass produced watery lagers... they're made to not "offend" anybody, they're meant to be drunk by anyone in order to get drunk.

A good hoppy IPA, or a very toasty porter, or a yeasty hefe, or a nice combo is all I need. As long as there is variety. I don't eat pizza for every meal, why should I drink the same tasting beer every time?

I never liked an overly hoppy beer. It should have a malty aroma, a slight caramel flavor with a mild bittersweet and a crisp finish.

Not really

Beer is too versatile of a beverage for me to give a simple answer. My true difference between a good and great beer though would be the overall product's quality or the overall balance. If you buy a hoppy pale ale and you get some awesome toastiness+bitterness+citrusy and piney hop flavors going on then you are probably drinking a great fucking beer. If you have a saison that has some funk, spice, and citrus without having the 100% typical saison flavor/aroma then you're probably drinking a pretty great saison. If you've got a stout/porter with a legit aroma of high quality coffee and/or high quality chocolate then you have a great beer in your hands. Beer can just be too different of a beverage. It doesn't have to be to the style. It doesn't have to be loaded with adjuncts. It doesn't have to follow some bavarian purity law. If you make the recipe and execute it the right way then that should more often than not be a great beer. I'm going to make a brief comparison here though to give the best example of what I consider good vs. great. A local brewery does a phenomenal BA pumpkin barleywine. It has the classic pumpkin ale notes, the classic english barleywine notes, and combines the two while aging in brandy and rye barrels. To me it's hands down the best pumpkin beer and the best BA Barleywine I've ever had. They made a great recipe and executed it perfectly. They're known for their sours however. Most of their sours don't have enough of the flavors that are advertised and are all too much house character (sourdough, extremely acidic, fairly fruity). I'd say these are just good and are almost incapable of blowing you away while still being solid purchases most of the time.

How can anyone drink beer??? It tastes like absolute shit. All alcohol does, but beer is unforgivable because it has such a low Alcohol content.
