This app has virtually no useful information. I don't trust the rating... most reviews give 1 or 2 stars, but itunes lists it as having 3 stars... what? If you are completely new to craft beers and happen to be at a beer bar that doesn't list the style (unlikely), then this app might be useful, if the search feature worked... it didn't for Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Lagunitas... in fact it didn't work for any beer. It only tells you the style, brewery (but not the city), type of brewery, package, correct glass, serving temp, whether it's pasteurized (missing on about half), alcohol content (missing on many), year introduced (missing on quite a few) and food pairings. No ratings, nothing about the aroma, flavor, body, etc. Also, it's seriously out-of-date: many defunct breweries and their beers listed, many breweries missing. There are 27 beers with the name "India Pale Ale" and 13 more titled "IPA" and you have to click on them to discover the brewery. I have deleted only four apps in the last year... this is one of them.
As others have said, this app started with a good idea, but needs a lot of work. There are a lot of obscure beers (good), but I've noticed it's difficult to find even some better known microbrews here in the US (bad). It's a great tool for pairing with food (good), but it would be better if it allowed user ratings. One thing that REALLY irks me about this app is that you can't sort beers by brewery - it would be much more user friendly if you could see all associated beers for each maker. I rarely use this app - better to just use Beer Advocate online.
Not Worth It
Freezes frequently and takes too long to load menus and screens (10-20 seconds). Active search is slow and causes crashes. UI is horrible and confusing to organize and utilize. Very generic style and no customization available. Look elsewhere. Passable library of beer but many common brands missing.
