Out of many, some.

Here, you will find links to all of the featured reviews we have done. These are different than ratings in that they go in depth into a beer's individual qualities. These are broken down into four main parts: Aroma (smell), Look (color, clarity, foam, cloudiness, pour, etc.), feel (heavy, smooth, light, crisp, refreshing, carbonation levels, etc.), and of course, Taste (flavors, subtleties, hints, pronouncements, aftertastes, bitterness, sweetness, etc.). Each and every beer has their own spectrum of attributes that separates it from every other beer ever created. The beers we chose to write reviews for aren't chosen by a complex system or algorithm. Sometimes, certain beers are quite memorable. Other times, the beer may be popular. And on occasion, we'll just want to write about a particular beer for no real reason at all.

And no, we're not going to do a review on a cheap or boring beer because that wastes your time... but more importantly, it wastes even more of our time. So go explore; click on a link, and get closer to finding your new favorite beer.

For the purposes of this website, a Featured (or Full) review is an in depth look at a beer's full character profile. These reviews are written based on tasting and review notes, which are taken directly from the beer while it is being analyzed (enjoyed, really). These notes are then processed into a character profile which includes various aspects concerning four main categories of quality: Look, Aroma, Feel, and Taste. When reading these reviews, you'll often come across certain words like choppy, malty, lingering, full bodied, aromatic, and so on. These and other descriptive adjectives are used to convey an objective and unbiased view inside the true quality of a particular beer. Beers are chosen for full review based on a wide set of criteria including overall reaction (perception of quality), satisfaction, lack of satisfaction (poor quality), belonging to a rare style, being produced for a limited time and/or by a unique/high quality brewery, or showing an elevated level of quirkiness... among other things. When a review is being written or notes are recorded, it is the duty of the reviewer to approach each and every beer with a standard level of unbiased fairness. A brewery, brand, or style should not, and does not establish any preconceived notions or predjudices which dictate how one thinks a beer will satisfy their senses. Reviews follow a standard formula from selecting a beer to be reviewed (and enjoyed, of course), all the way to the publishing of a final written online review, which usually includes background information about a brewery, beer knowledge, some history, or just a witty story which the beer reminds us of. All beer reviews are written entirely in our own words and are not influenced by the reviews or words of other beer enthusiasts or critics. In this way, we can assure you that what you read on this website is an honest, original, and objective perspective about a beer that may be on your prospective "to try" list.
