Please note that the star ratings for the appreciation are based on the weighted average and not on the mean average like the rating. You can have a look to the ranking list to see the weighted averages and the way they are calculated as well.
The rating for creativity level (1 to 5 stars) should reflect the will of the brewery to offer different beers in many styles. This work is underway.
