Mistrust this Review

Interesting email in the inbox today:

My name is Ryan and I am writing from Beerocity.com.  I just came across your website, which I enjoyed very much, and wanted to reach out to you to see if you might be a good fit to partner with us in some form. 

We run several high traffic beer sites with different focuses. Some sell personalized beer & bar products, from Das Boot to beer pong tables to licensed sports team glassware.  We also have some sites with links to great resources for people to find beer related businesses like bars, breweries, homebrewing groups, the best beer bloggers, etc.

We are interested in finding partners for the following
  • Beer experts & bloggers to review our products and give us write ups
  • Link &  banner partners
  • Partners we can run promotions & contests with
  • ....and any other ideas we can conjure up together

Note the section I've bolded.  I didn't reply, so I'm not totally sure what he had in mind.  Still, when partners are in the review business, something's not quite kosher.  Word to the wise--
