Hello, good evening and welcome......to Beers Of The Americas versus Sausages. A selfless quest to find the north/central/south American beer that is best to drink if you're eating sausages. We gathered eight beers and devised our usual over-complicated scoring system, as follows:
Flavour - how does it taste? Gorgeous? Foul? Or somewhere in between. Scored up to 10
Head - A frothy top makes a beer look nicer, obvs. Up to 5
Alcohol By Volume - simply put, the punchier the beer the more points they score
Looks - Does the bottle itself get your tastebuds tingling? Up to 5
Value for money - the flavour score, divided by the cost of the beer. So.....if the beer scores high for flavour and is very cheap, this score will rocket. Alternatively if the beer scores low for flavour but is expensive....not many points.
It's Personal - a new category, allowing judges to add some personal vitriol or lurve to one of the beers, for ANY reason, scoring minus five or plus five, or something in between.
Beer/Sausage/Combo Factor (BSCF) - Does the beer go down well with sausage? Essential category. Up to 5
Gas - Is this beer too gassy, thus reducing sausage eating time and satisfaction? Between 2 and -2
Got all that? Good. Maximum score is......hold on......add that to that..... divide by your shoe size.....errrm, carry the seven......oh who cares, on with the testing!
