Guide to Tasting Beer
Tasting is the best part of brewing, as it rewards you for the long hard hours you've put into your creation. To effectively taste and evaluate one's beer, you must learn to distinguish the flavors as well as the aromas beers should and shouldn't have. Following a few simple steps, you'll be able to dissect each valuable characteristic of your beer and at the same time improve your overall knowledge and understanding of it.
You can evaluate your beers numerically by assigning a point value to each of the above categories. By keeping a record of your beer's scores as well as comments on each of the above categories, you can chart your progress and improvements as a brewer. This record also gives you a feel for when your beers are in their prime so you can enter them in competitions when they are at their best. Happy tasting!
