I originally bought this book to give myself a crash course in how to evaluate my own homebrew beer. My goal was then to condense the content and provide a quick and dirty process for my beer drinking friends to provide me feedback on my beer.

This book doesn't give me this. Its a compilation of a wide range of author contributions including the lead man of contemporary homebrewing Papazian himself. Each author's contribution is in their own style and the result is a "grab bag" of chapters without a lot of cohesiveness between them. While some of the chapters are decent others are pretty weak and never really deliver any substance.

In the end this book reads like a random collection of chapters that falls way short of enlightening you on how to evaulate beer. I even recognize some recycled text from some of Papazian's other books. Not cool.

This is a great book if you are a brewer or home-brewer. If you're just interested in beer or want this book is of almost no value. I'd compare it to someone who likes watching Discovery channel trying to read an advanced physics book. If you're into seriously reviewing beer (I write a beer blog) or want to judge beer competitions then this book is of slightly more value, but still not much.

I think the target demographic for this book really is home brewers who are looking to go pro or pros who are looking to revise their tasting panels. If you're in that situation then this book is perfect for you, for everyone else it's a bit much.

Great book, but suitable for professionals and not for beginners.
