Ok, am trying to put some order to all this so if things suddenly look a bit different you’ll know it’s me just going over a few things. First up, I’m changing up the marking system a bit. Appearance and mouthfeel are now worth up to 15 instead of 10, and the x-factor/bonus points thing is plus or minus up to 10 based on whether a beer rocks my world or pisses me off, and from here on in I’ll say why it gets what it gets as far as that goes. Aroma, flavour and value are still worth 20 each. I’ll be going over old posts to adjust the mark accordingly [update: they’ve all taken a bit of a hit, particularly the Coopers which always look awful] and giving them a number while I’m at it so they’re easier to find if I have to. This stuff is riveting, I know. As you read this try not to think about the fact that downloading a single web page uses about 1.9 Watt-hours. Meh, I don’t care about carbon footprints anyway. Bring on global warming, I’ve always wanted a house on the beach.
Also if anyone’s got any requests for stuff they want me to try I’m up for ideas. Since I know pretty much everyone who reads this thing and most of you are reasonably trustworthy if it’s recommended and I can get a hold of it I’ll give it a go. I won’t touch the Cave Creek Chili Beer though, I do have some standards. Cheers peeps.
