Mastering Beer Tasting and Appreciation: A Guide for Beer Geeks
Hello and welcome to “How to Become a Beer Aficionado”! I will be your guide throughout this course. My name is Martine HL, and I have been a certified beer judge for over three decades. With my international recognition and expertise as the author of “Beer for Dummies” and “Home Brewing for Dummies,” as well as my role as an advisor in the craft beer industry, I am well-equipped to teach you everything you need to know about beer.
The goal of this course is to help you develop a deep appreciation and enjoyment for beer. Aspiring beer geeks will be required to create a beer tasting logbook, where you will document your experiences with various beer styles. By tasting and analyzing different styles, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of their unique flavors and characteristics.
In Chapter Four, we will delve into the world of beer style guidelines, where you will discover a wide range of options to choose from. It is essential to come back for that discussion! Additionally, I will provide you with an example of a tasting sheet to use in your logbook. While you may use a different template, I highly recommend following a similar format which includes the beer name, brewery, style, appearance, aroma, taste (including aftertaste), and even a scoring system. These elements are essential for a true beer geek experience.
So, grab yourself a beer, and let’s embark on this exciting journey of expanding your beer knowledge. Cheers!
