Chances are, we either poured some of this out, or we seriously considered it. This might actually eat the lining out of your stomach if you don't dilute it with something in the 7-8 range. There is a small, sick side to us that did this page because of beers like these.
Possibly drinkable, won't kill you. Usually the bottom of the mass-brewed beers, and the micro brews that never made it. Standard fare at sports bars.
The "average" beers, 4 being just below, 6 being just above. Not bad, but won't knock your socks off. Probably the stuff you keep in your fridge for everyday drinking. If these are available at a party or bar, you're not doing too bad.
This is the good stuff, the beers that you have at special occasions, the ones you tell your friends to try, the ones you give for gifts at Christmas.
Forget it. You'll never be able to get your hands on it, cause the best ones are never sold near you. Rather, you stumbled upon them by accident and have been unable to get back there again. More often than not, it's one of those where you're like, "Oooh, I can't remember the name, but if you see it you HAVE to try it" (which is why we wrote their names down). The Loch Ness Monster, the Holy Grail, and the first time you saw an actual boob in real life (or if you're female, the first time you fell in love), all wrapped up in a glass container.
