Balsamic Asparagus

Husband really enjoyed this and said that he thought this was his favorite aspect of the meal.  For me however this was my first time to make/eat asparagus and it tastes a little earthy for me.  My mother in law said it was good and my father in law went back for seconds so I guess their votes count more than mine.  I personally think that asparagus has an acquired taste, so it may take a few times to grow on me.

2 cups water
1 bunch (pound) fresh asparagus, trimmed
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large pan, bring water to a boil. 
Add asparagus, and boil uncovered for 4-5 minutes or until tender. 
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, butter, garlic, salt and pepper. 
Drain asaragus and drizzle with balsamic mixture.
