    I didn't see "drinkability" on that list,
    What sort of hokey list did they put out?

    Everyone knows that drinkability is key to beer happiness

    That word was popularized by AB, probably copyrighted. I heard an interview with a brewer, maybe from Dogfishhead, Sam Calgione, I don't recall, he put it on a label and showed it around to bars and bartenders, and they all said no one would know what that meant, then that following summer AB launched their Drinkability campaign. Go figure eh?
