Do you prefer beef or lamb?

I'm reading through this old Chowhound post and people are saying that lamb tastes like farts and tastes disgusting. Does anyone else experience this? I'm always surprised when people describe what they're tasting, sometimes it's completely different from what I experience.

I think lamb is delicious. I had some the other day and it was heavily seasoned with rosemary, black pepper and garlic, then cooked in a tomato sauce. I think the "gameyness" really helped the dish and brought out the flavors of the spices. Actually, I liked it so much, I may swear off ground beef forever, except for burgers, of course.

On the other hand, I no longer like ground beef, it doesn't have enough flavor for me. I almost exclusively cook with short rib, chuck or brisket because it has more flavor (I'm talking about beef used in dishes). If I had a choice, I think I'd always pick the lamb.

What say you?
