What do the scores mean?

0* Undrinkable. Doesn't even resemble ale, so poor you can't or don't want to finish it.
1* Poor. Is anything from barely drinkable to drinkable with considerable resentment, it either lacks any real flavours or overpowers your taste buds. Whatever you paid for this, you want it back.
2* Average. A drinkable non offensive pint but doesn't inspire in any way, you drink the beer without really noticing it or any of its flavours.
3* Good. A Good beer, pleasant flavours at the start and finish, you could sink another afterwards and take a mental note of the label, but its not good enough to interrupt the polite conversation amongst friends.
4* Very Good. Excellent beer, pours bright and looks good. It has aromas and clear crisp flavours, balanced between start and finish leaving a palate begging for more. You find yourself reading the back of the bottle to know more about where and how it was brewed.
5* Perfect. Probably the best you are ever likely to find, like a perfect pub pint. Cancel all plans and take the phone of the hook. You find yourself wanting to visit the brewery, collect its beer mats, and look adoringly at its logo every time you see it. You're in love, if only you could get the head brewers name you could become friends with him on facebook.
