I work part time at a wine/liquor store in downtown Boston with an excellent craft beer selection. I love wine but I'm more partial to beer and I love trying something new each week. I've decided to start reviewing beers, but I have a very simplified rating system. I found that in answering customer questions, very ornate and descriptive assessments really proved unhelpful. Also, given the selection of amazing beers on the shelf I found myself playing down beers that were perfectly fine on their own because they didn't measure up to the high bar that I had set for myself. I realized that this didn't help the consumer in any way. So, my rating system is simply would I, or would I not "buy it again". I realize this is somewhat of a departure from the norm on BA, but I really feel it is a true and honest assessment of the product.
Samurai Ale - Would not buy again
This beer is ok. Not bad in any sense, but just ok. Clean and crisp, highly carbonated, refreshing, a little different (I can definitely pick up a sake-ish note in the aroma) but not great.
Just one man's opinion
