Beer List

Here’s a handy list of beers I’ve drank and judged over time.  Beers I’ve tried since 2007 I’ve reviewed on this blog and are hyperlinked to the original review.  Beers I rated prior to 2007 do not have a full review and do not link to anything

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 – 8.0
  • C = 4.1 – 6.0
  • D = 2.1 – 4.0
  • F = 0.1 – 2.0

Five Stars

Four Stars

Three Stars

Two Stars

One Star

    Five great American beers I’ll have to try (according to Paste).

    Hey Liam, you need to get some Belgian in you (not many on the list). Here’s one I tried and throughly enjoyed.

    I will have to look at this properly, but after looking at your list, it confirms a rule of thumb that I made a long time ago – don’t try a beer with fruit in it!

      I’ve had some good blueberry beers, and I don’t mind a shandy, but there’s always a grave risk of fruit beers tasting overly sweet and/or artificial.

        I’ve quite enjoyed ginger added to beer, Blandford Fly from the Badger Brewery in Dorset for one, but I find that there is much more batch to batch variation this kind of beer.

        Can’t recall trying ginger in beers much but it looks like the ones I’ve tried got good reviews (it’s a good thing I write these things down or wouldn’t remember at all!).
