As the title suggests, I wonder, how many ratings are biased? I don't care the website/platform. Is the rater aware but doesn't care? Right now I am drinking a Pilsner Urquell, and I gotta say, I'm enjoying it much more than I did Surly Xtra-Citra (the 4-pack was a total drain pour, and drunk within 7 days after canning). I feel Pilsner Urquell is a much better representation of its respective style compared to Surly Xtra-Citra. I could say the same about Pilsner Urquell representing its respective style much better than many stouts and stouts are my favorite style. For me, it's hard to rate a pale ale/stout better than a pilsner just because it's a pale ale/stout, which got me thinking, how do you rate beers? I know, ASTMO. But ASTMO still seems like a joke to me if someone is picking a stout over a pilsner just because "it tastes better" or "has more flavor" instead of how it represents the respective style. Are your ratings based on the overall taste, respective style, a combination? Cheers! Go Brewers!
