Is there something that explains the beer ratings? They just donít seem to make sense to me.


For example:
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/miller-lite/403/
How can this be a 0 overall rating when all ratings are above this?

And a rating from that page:

2.1
AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hathachips (4) - - SEP 1, 2012 does not count [click to see why this rating of Miller Lite does not count]
Great beer when you want to drink all damn day. Light, refreshing and affordable. Yum yum


What is the 2.1 and does it relate to the "AROMA, APPEARANCE, TASTE, PALATE, OVERALL"? How can you get 2.1 from those #ís? And how do you even get an OVERALL 10/20 from the AROMA, APPEARANCE, TASTE, and PALATE numbers?
BTW, if he likes it, why do the ratings appear to be low?


Another example:
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/bud-light/474/

How can this be n/a overall?

I had this at Applebeeís. It is pretty good for a light beer. I would drink this again.

0 is a percentile: the beer is better than 0% of the beers on the site; hover on the number and it will reveal the exact percentile number (0.147%)

look at the 5 marks given by the user, 2+2+5+2+10=21, then converted in 2.1
Overall=10/20 is a userís choice, not a system calculation; he could give 20/20 if he likes; of course it wouldnít make sense to give 20 to a beer after giving 1 and 1 for aroma and flavor...
Again, itís userís freedom to spend sweet words and hard numbers or viceversa.

I guess that this one has a percentile of 0.000, and the system displays as n/a, but Iím not sure

OP... you donít get to call out other users, including their ratings. This one is done.
