Beer Here!


As another new feature here on Panorama of the Mountains, I’ve gathered together all my beer reviews in one easy list drank and rated over the years.  The list is posted below and will also be a page at the top of this blog called Beer List.   I will update that list as I sample new beers. 

I’ve also added in some ratings for beers I tried 10-11 years ago including some beers I had on tap in pubs in Ireland and Scotland.  I have a book with even more beer ratings from my early to mid twenties that I’ll add to this list if & when I find the book.  These can be taken with a grain of salt as the opinions of an immature palate (or perhaps of younger, healthier taste buds!).  At any rate, I tend to be overly generous with my beer ratings so I think this list will at least give a good relative scale of goodness and badness.

I rate beers by awarding points for their appearance, aroma, taste, how they look after a few sips, and overall quality on a ten point scale. Any beer that earns 5 or more points is worth trying again and I rank these with one to five stars. Any beers below five points are on a descending spiral of badness. I tend to screen out bad beers ahead of time so I don’t get many no star beers.

If you want to look at it on a letter grade system then the point scale to letter grade equivalents would be something like this:

  • A = 8.1 – 10
  • B = 6.1 – 9.0
  • C = 4.1 – 6.0
  • D = 2.1 – 4.0
  • F = 0.1 – 2.0
