I feel the last one should be IPA - Flavored… as it has mango. Many IPAs have wheat but that does not automatically a White IPA make.
IPA - Flavored would fit as well. Leaving it up to the admins to decide how to classify it.
Two more I think are the same.
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/stigbergets-scandinavian-west-coast-ipa/554322/ with 3 ratings and https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/stigbergets-west-coast-ipa/280185/ with 333. The logo on the two versions are the same (the seagull head) and on the monopoly store it is listed as West Coast IPA but with Scandinavian West Coast IPA on the can https://www.systembolaget.se/dryck/ol/stigbergets-120515 .
Perhaps - Unrateable is a better option, when thinking about it…
A few changes from my lesser lists:
Rauchbeers that need to be smoked porters:
maybe this: https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/oliver-destroyer-of-the-light/354741/128160/
American strong ales that should be imperial browns:
Needs to have the CA added:
A few things. Firstly this is only 6.6% so not imperial style. Porter - Flavoured probably best as it has vanilla in it.
The original is already retired but for clarity can we rename and add a hyphen on the end of the year as it’s been brewed again for 2020. They added a separate vintage on Untappd but the description is identical so I don’t think anything has actually changed. I’m not going to add as a new beer unless we find out otherwise.
Also here’s said description:
More like a bragott then a meadomel
Question… are some beers automatically tagged based on text in the description? Or are tags only ever added by users?
Asking because I’ve come across non-English language beers, in this case Spanish, with irrelevant tags added. For example the ‘amarillo’ tag, not for the hop, but because that’s Spanish for ‘yellow’ so presumably lots of pale ales use it when describing the colour. Similarly with ‘sabro’, they don’t contain this hop but use the word ‘sabrosa’ in their description.
Is this users being idiots? Or is it Ratebeer trying to be clever and failing?
As a normal user, sometimes RB lets me remove tags from beers, sometimes it doesn’t, right now it doesn’t so I can’t remove tags myself. It’s no big deal just one of those mildly annoying things for those of us who actually use tags.
Tags are only added manually. When a tag is found in the title or in the description, it appears as a suggested tag.
So there’s 2 way the Amarillo tag was added to this beer.
- Added by a user manually by mistake.
- Added by automatic mass-tagging of the Amarillo tag (probably for the Hop) by a level10 admin or Dev by mistake. But note that removing a few erroneous tag containing the Amarillo word in some Spanish beer descriptions takes less time compare to adding the tag for all Amarillo-described beer manually…
Checked my Gose listings for @explosivedog and some more:
Gose to Gose - Flavoured:
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/bunthaus-gose-morning-vietnam/525190/414653/ (with Lime and Lemongrass)
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/laugar-gross-tekiller/547750/414653/ (a Gose-Radler with lemon)
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/heidenpeters-ale-mania-gemeinschaftsgose/664544/414653/ (with orange peel)
Gose to Lichtenhainer
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/iron-assemblage-gose-echalote-ba-bordeaux-merlot-saison-poivre-sel/700994/414653/ (would probably list it as Sour - Flavored)
And just looking at the Top50 there are loads of dryhopped Goses in there. They should probably all moved to Gose - Flavoured where already some are listed.
Move to Flavored - Chili / Peppers:
They have both chili and fruit, where to put them?
Move to Porter - Flavored:
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/lermitage-noire-du-midi/546577/414653/ (Hoppy porter)
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/schneeeule-mr-paul/485930/414653/ (Brett porter)
Move to Imperial Porter - Flavored
Move to Flavored - Chili
Up for discussion:
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/pohjala-must-kuld/272686/414653/ (has lactose in it according to the website, but wouldn’t classify it as a "milk porter)
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/kemker-mopken/651600/414653/ (this needs a complete update, here is the description: Collaboration with Gruthaus (Münster). Barrel aged Porter with Pumpernickel bread and rye malt. Both brewers pitched their sour dough cultures into the barrel. This is liquid bread!) - Porter - Flavored?
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/sander-seasonal-sweet-oak/723175/414653/ (Sour Porter aged in Barrique Barrels - Porter Flavored or Sour - Flavored?)
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/zwetbe/134551/414653/ (not a true porter technically)
I tend to just report UK changes via the beer pages but as there was a request on a other thread…
Ordering from a localish brewery I have yet to tick off and noticed some styles changes:
This should be an Amber Ale:
This should be an IPA (or SIPA?):
These are Ciders - Flavored:
These have been added as Pale Ales but must be APAs (in fact the majority of Pale Ales brewed by a UK ‘craft’ brewery is going to be an attempt at an APA, surely):
Trying to be clever and failing I reckon. Someone ran a script and picked up a ton of unrelated shit, not having thought of this. :sigh:
Funnily enough, the first beer I fixed is a flavored imperial baltic porter - and unlike porters and stouts, we don’t have have imperial, flavored and imperial flavored versions of those.
Edit: Sabro cleared I reckon.
Some to move to to Pale Ale - flavoured, I think:
Currently an APA:
Currently golden ales:
Currently an English Pale Ale
I changed the first one and the last two, as deemed appropriate. The other ones are golden ales or summer ales so should probably stay where they are or dropped in the catch all Flavored- Other category. I kept them where they are.
This is a duplicate:
It should be merged with Kotayk Lager (https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/kotayk-lager/13523/), which should have its ABV lowered to 4.5%… It has been 4.5% since 2014.
I did the below:
This should be an IPA (or SIPA?):
These are Ciders - Flavored:
But the other ones are not a clear cut case for me.
I think people quite often take the easy route with a Pale Ale and just add it as that. Personally I don’t think any beer should be added under that style.
A few from Sailors Grave.
