Iím new to this whole rating thang. Really enjoying developing my "brew palate". Iíve noticed that I tend to rate brew high also. Chalk it up to just being passionate about beers. I hope that I never meet the dreaded 0.5 . . .

It got it first 5.0 from knickskicks Yesterday.

In fact up till now its had no 4.9 or 5.0


In fact im always suspicious of any Beer that had 5.0ís out of proportion to its other ratings.


Fantastic beer!

I tend to rate high, but I just think of it as me really loving beer.


oh ive no problem with High raters. I tend to be generous myself, as i also love beer.


But sometimes its amazing how Very rare beers seem to have way more 5.0 than one might expect even for a Great beer


Ahem, Budweiser has 25 5.0 ratings.


I dont have such a problem with that. Its in decent proprtion to all the other ratings. For some people it will be their fav beer.

Yeah its not what id call great. But i like lots of dross stuff. Cheap dross sausages are often just as satifying as a gourmet one.

but looks at stats
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/statistics/473/

i think the 0.5 are way out of kilter and i think thats just as bad. Really have that many people never seen beer that look worse that Bud.

ive had murky ugly looking beers. Bud may taste horrible to me, but i cant really fault its look.





Pardon my candor here, but anyone giving Budweiser a 5.0 should not only be banned from ratebeer forever, but should be publicly flogged.

Me its totally not my thing. But there are people out there where Bud is the choice of beer.

Now maybe if they drunk more they would have the eyes widened to the truely wonderful world of beer.

And i doubt that there many if any who have tried 100ís of beers who is going to give bud a 5.0

But as it a hedonistic scale we shoudl accept that some people may thing Bud is the Best thing ever.


Maybe its just me, but i cant help but wonder whwn a beer had a disproportionate number of 0.5s or 5.0 if all the reviewers were really being truely honest.

1 for budís appearance. Really have that many people never seen worse looking beers, does it look that much worse than other beers
