Format: Paperback
The simple, easy to read and understand booklet gives novices and enthusiasts alike a guide to discovering new beer and uncovering hidden aspects of old favorites. The kit itself is nicely done and provides all you need to conduct a beer tasting for yourself and friends except the beer and glasses. Included cards for evaluations help make sense of what your mouth is experiencing and make a nice conversation piece. Though it all seems simple and straightforward, you'll be surprised by how much you'll learn about beer, the link between ingredients and taste and your own preferences.

This is the perfect complement to the explosion in American craft beer and a guaranteed great excuse for a party!

This book gave an OK overview and history of the different beer styles.
And some helpful insight on beer matching food.
But I was hoping for more, a very short read.

Purchased this kit for my dad's birthday, since he's crazy about tasting beers and home brewing. He was SO happy with the kit. He felt like such a pro.
He made the whole family gather for a tasting party so we could sample and test all of his different brewed beers. My dad loved how the taste testing taught you what kind of beer you prefer.

Great for beer pros or beer beginners!

I read this book, cover to cover, in just over an hour. If you're new to beer, and particularly beer tastings, and prefer to not come across as an idiot when imbibing, this book is for you. For the more experienced, you may want a heartier guide.

This is a well-written overview of beer styles and tasting suggestions. If there's a shortcoming, it is that the book could be more detailed with respect to the various styles and how to taste and pair them. Of course, then it would not be a Quick Reference Guide. Jeff has done a nice job putting together a book that is informative, yet succinct. The book is exactly what the title says it is.

This is definitely a "quick" reference guide. Don't expect more than that. Would be a nice companion to a blind tasting party.

Nice book, but it's not amazing. Because we have BJCP to look for what we want about principais characteristics of each beer style! That's all.
