My beer reviews on RateBeer look nice. I like them compared to the reviews from others. Not that I’m a great reviewer because I’m not. My palate is still developing and sometimes, I get lazy.

Most reviews on RateBeer are 1-2 sentences and it’s hard to find just the Taste or Smell notes from each. So, I put together a template that I use when writing each review. Maybe you can put this to good use? 

 

<br><br>

A – 

<br><br>

S – 

<br><br>

T – 

<br><br>

M – 

<br><br>

O – 

<br><br>

1st line is notes such as where I had the bottle, glass type, beer serving temp and other details. Then, I do Appearance, Smell, Taste, Mouthfeel and Overall separated by two line breaks. This makes things a tiny bit easier to read. Some guys have other processes here but this is mine. Feel free to use it and, if you have a better way, let me know.
