    Oooh, he’s updating this fall!, July 27, 2000
    By 

    Now we’ll get to see if Bob has tried to make his reviews more than a few colorful, useless adjectives based on one bottle or draft sample. While I commend the quantity of beers sampled, it would be nice to see him do a good job comparing and judging beers this time. If he really still thinks that a large number of mass-produced American Light Lagers are better than *objectively* better (read: no additivies, adjuncts or fillers) lagers and pilsners from smaller breweries, let alone some of the best beers in the world, well, he’s entitled to his opinion but any semi-serious beer judge would laugh in his Brussels-lace-covered face. I’ll be looking for this book in the local B&N before I plunk down any money, here or elsewhere — given the uselessness of the 1995 version, I suggest the same caution for anyone considering the purchase of the update.

    No name-calling, just the facts, December 9, 1999

    Alexander D. Mitchell IV (Baltimore, Md.) –

    Okay, enough of the childish name-calling here; let’s just stick to the facts. The reviews in this book rely on verbosity rather than intellect. True, the tasting of beers is subjective. But Klein gives disparate reviews to virtually-identical beers, and writes as if he’s being paid by the word. His ratings are all over the place–darts may have been used. One might be able to use this book to garner an idea as to whether they might like or dislike an expensive beer, but otherwise it’s pretty lame and out of date by now. I recommend the Simon & Shuster Pocket Guide to Beer by Michael Jackson, much more up-to-date and useful.

    THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR AN UNBIAS REVIEW, March 28, 2000

    MARK MILLER (The Great Midwest) –

    After forcing myself to read every single review, I felt the need to review this book in order to help others confused by the previous 5 star or 1 star reviews. The truth is somewhere in between. Klein does think he is reviewing wine with all his flowery words and he is inconsistant with clearly comparable brews. However, the hard info defining the different types as well as bringing to light new brands and even known brands with unheard of products deserves some entertainment value. Which brings about the most important part of this review. Buy this for entertainment purposes only! Don’t take the reviews seriously as they are absurdly overstated and inaccurate!
