phirx Ratings 2014

(phirx ratings) are on a scale of 1-10.

From these ratings you will mostly learn what beer I (points thumbs at self) like.

3 and under is a beer I don’t care for, 4-5 is well, meh it’s ok.  6 and up is a beer I like and would drink again, theoretically, if there weren’t so many others to choose from – the higher the number the greater chance I’ll have another pint of this one! 9 is a beer I like very much indeed.  10 is just about impossible to earn.

I reserve the right to change my rating if my opinion of a beer changes after a second try (or later even).  In most cases, ABV and IBU information provided by Untappd, if available.
