    This isn't a huge deal but could be confusing to some. I had previously "had" a beer about a year ago, and just now I wrote a full review for it. However, when I looked at my beer review list, it wasn't there. It turns out, the review posts under the original date of the "had".

    My example, that I posted just now: http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/10099/1161/?ba=Dope as you can see, it says it was reviewed in Jan of 2012. I even noted the bottling date which is 9 months after my review date.

    Not huge but could be a bit strange/confusing. Just thought I'd bring it up since I didn't see any mention of this in a search (maybe because no one cares but me).

    Haha, just noticed this tonight too. I "had" an Enjoy By a while ago but I gave it an actual review tonight. Seeing as it was a 4.01.13 and my review is now a month before that batch was even released....well... :confused:

    When you write the review, there's an option just below the review text box to choose between "edit" and "re-revew". The former keeps the original date, the latter makes a new entry entirely, cancelling the previous Had.
