I look forward to trying the KC Rye, as I was one who found the Ri1 lacking. But, I'd be careful to not make broad statements in regards to the board as a whole in regards to Beam, or any other topic, for that matter.
Fair enough. And while I know there is almost nothing that is absolute, and perhaps it is because I tend to drift more towards Beam that I see more of it, but it doesn't seem to be an observation that is far from the mark.
But, point taken, I will try to use a less broad stroke in the future.
