I think beer are like movies. If you think its gonna be the best movie ever and its not, you think its a shit movie even tho it could have been a very high quality film. Just didn't meet your expectations.
Racer 5 was like that for me. I read so much about how good it was that when I finally had some and it was good, very good even... just didn't take me to heaven like I expected.
Sometimes I will try to leverage this effect. Lets say I'm gonna watch a movie like "The Happening". I purposefully think its gonna be the worst movie of all time. I put that in my mind real good. Then when its actually an average movie and it exceeds my low expectations, I can go away thinking it was a good movie.
