Colonel, welcome to APUG!
To get an idea of how the bokeh of different lenses looks, check out flickr. Put in a specific camera and lens, and there is likely a collection of photographs from that combination there. Doing a general search for "(camera) (lens) bokeh" may well be productive.
There is no singular subjective judgment of bokeh. Some people like "swirly" bokeh, which gives others a headache. Some people just don't like bokeh which to their eye is too "smooth".
