    My rating system:

    5=A Favorite. Get it every chance you get.
    4=A rock solid beer, can't go wrong here. Buy it again, unless there is a 5 available.
    3=Pretty decent beer. This one has the greatest variation. If toward the upper end, worth revisiting. If toward the lower end, may revisit if in the mood, but won't actively seek out.
    2=Just not up to snuff. Don't buy again.
    1=This may have been brewed in an old boot or the bottom of a public swimming pool. If someone offers this or a water, take the water, because it's just not worth it.

    I also rate each beer with the following final verdict:

    Worth Revisiting: Yes or No
    Would Purchasing Again: Yes or No
