My Not So Professional Beer Reviews

One of the main reasons I started a blog was because I wanted to keep a record of what beers I tried and which ones I liked.  So, I’m going to attempt to review each of the beers I drink.

Reviews are so subjective.  What makes one person an expert?  I’m certainly no expert, but I know what I like. So I’ll attempt to describe each beer in a way that is hopefully more descriptive than “beer good” or “beer bad”.  Since you can’t have a review without stars or thumbs, I’ll employ a simple rating system:
  • 1 star:  I can’t bear to finish it.
  • 2 star:  Drinkable--but not sure I really want to.
  • 3 star:  Good. I’d drink it again if someone gave it to me.
  • 4 star:  Really Good! I want this again.
  • 5 star:  Liquid Perfection! 
Just to be clear, this is all being done in the name of research.   Let the research commence…


8/30 update:  Changed scale to a 5 star scale (from 4 star).  Replaced No Stars with 1 Star, and bumped up all the levels.  Modified all existing reviews to reflect the change.

You'll have to use this rating at beer festivals... like Green Dragon's tomorrow, Octoberfest, Holiday Ale Festival, etc...

Thanks Freebird. I actually came up with this scale with beerfests in mind. In my opinion, it all boils own to "do I want to drink this beer again" and "am I willing to spend my own money on it".
