    Whatever happened to having searchable metadata for each beer based on common characteristics i.e. citrus, phenolic, sour, hoppy, etc?

    This was brought up a few years ago and suggestions were solicited. Will this be part of the redesign?

    The same thing that happened to a ton of our other ideas: shelved until we got the resources to make it happen. Now we do and it's definitely something we've discussed for the site redesign.

    I've never heard of that but I think it would be cool if every beer had the most common words compiled from it's reviews at the top of the page (obviously excluding common reviewing words like 'palate' 'flavor' 'malt' etc.) That way you could tell what characteristics to expect without reading through multiple reviews to see what parts match up.
