Google seems to be testing a search box in the reviews section for a local business listing in Google Maps and web search. I personally do not see this yet but Ben Fisher posted a screen shot of this on Twitter.

Here is that screen shot:

I cannot replicate this and I've tried tons of different branded searches to bring up reviews and look for a search box. Nothing has come up for me yet.

Do you see a search box for the reviews?

I do find searching reviews, at least when I am looking to buy something, very useful.
