Part of the issue many have with posting reviews on Google+ is that Google uses your Google Account Profile full name when associating it with your review. So, you want to write a review, but still leave it somewhat anonymous, this is the next best solution (for now).

Changing your First/Last Name Options

To post anonymously on Google+ they will need to change their first and or last name on their Google Profile. Say John Doe, wants to change his name, all he will have to do is change his last name to D. as a first and last name are both required. So in this case the name for the review would be John D.
