I think the phrase "well-balanced" is quite clear. Yes, I do like cask ale, bitters or milds are fine either way. I don't mind a bit of bitterness or maltiness in a beer. It's when they try to smack you over the head with it (either way) that I find it a terrible, undrinkable beer. I was a guest at the Old Brewery in London a few years ago when I was offered an IPA made with American hops. I fearfully accepted it. To my shock, it was well-balanced and quite drinkable, unlike the American versions I'd tried.
