But for the most part, the higher the alcohol, the better the reviews. 9+% ABV beers are usually well-reviewed! Any "normal" beers are pretty much panned.
yep, a bad example of IIPA gets a 90, a great example of english bitter gets a 78, go figure.
i still like to read the reviews there from time to time, especially when trying a brew i've never heard of, but i take what i read with a grain of salt.
