Top 10 Untappd Micro Reviews of 2013

Beer geeks can be somewhat obsessive, and there was a time I used to write down what I’d drank in a notebook. When I discovered, that all changed.

In 2013, I posted 181 times on Untappd, describing and rating each beer I was drinking at the time. It allowed me to share the information with my readers on Twitter and Facebook, but more importantly it gave me a chance to write some of the weirdest similes I could dream up.

There are not just meaningless ramblings. Hidden in each is how I felt about the beer; sometimes the description is meant to hide a negative review and other times it just reflects what I was thinking about at the time. Each micro review holds a subtle hint about how the beer tasted.

I bring you my top 10 Untappd micro reviews of 2013:

10. Gerry Dog Stout by Big Elm Brewing – Like swimming in maple butter with Clifford the Big Brown Pancake.
