    Some of you have expressed that you'd like Hads to work more like reviews or have more depth, however our goal with Hads is to provide an easy way to track the beers you've had and give them a quick score. Looking for more depth? Review the beer.

    That said, to compromise we've added a .25 increment option to the scores. We feel that this still meets our goals, but provides more flexibility when scoring Hads.

    Your existing Hads scores have not been altered, but going forward the increment will be available and you can adjust previous scores at any time.

    Thanks, Todd

    For the times when you are ticking and being extra critical?

    Cheers!

    Probably when you're at work, he's at his work, which is doing all this stuff.

    Excellent!
    Maybe this could be done with the reviews too ... I've certainly wished I could enter a 4.25 or 3.75 or the like on a good number of occasions.

    Nice job. Keep "Hads" simple. There is no need for depth.

    Are they gonna be tracked or marked so you can see which beers you've had when looking at a breweries profile/list of beers? That would be really helpful

    This was a great idea, I've been thinking it for a while now. I went through and readjusted my "hads" and now I feel like they're much more representative. Kudos guys!

    I wish reviews were @ .25 increments too - although then I'd be tempted to go back through all my old reviews and recalibrate...

    Agreed, for consistency alone, but also it would be a welcomed too, since it's adds a bit more nuance to many ratings.

    I have wished for this on many occasions when something is not quite a 4 but not a 3.5. or something of that sort.

    Awesome :D
    Now we just need the category scores to get a 0.25 increment!

    I think that the actual reviews should remain as is with the 0.5 increments.
