Sick of seeing the star rating system? Tired of rating on a 9-point scale? Wondering what the real difference between 2.14 and 3.16 on the rating scale is? Look no further, the next generation of beer rating systems is here. Brought to you exclusively by the folks at justbeer.wordpress.com, we give you the JustBeer Blog 6-rating normalpeoplewillunderstandthisratingsystem rating system… or JBB6 Rating System. Here it is in all its splendor:
JustBeer Blog Hall of Fame – the ultimate honor. Reserved for only those truly outstanding beers out there.
For the Win – the rating that a beer would get if you were at the store shopping for beer that you wanted to impress your guests, friends, family, or neighbors with. You would vouch for this beer and consider it a special treat if it were in your fridge.
Will Buy Again – while you wouldn’t necessarily buy this to impress anyone, you would buy it again because it just tastes good.
- Middle of the Road – Not necessarily good or bad. Nothing differentiating. Nothing special. Tastes like other beer within the same type/class/flavor/etc. Probably won’t buy it again.
- Just Not Right – Whatever normally provides us with beer goodness was missed here. Just doesn’t cut it. It is highly likely that you won’t buy this again or recommend it to anyone that isn’t your enemy. If the last beer on earth, though, you would still probably drink it.
And there you have it. Ultra exclusive, ultra hip, ultra perfect. This is the rating system to end all rating systems, so don’t look any further.
Now… back to the beer.
