Excellent tasting journal for future/current beer geeks! TONS of features - compact, clean package!
on January 9, 2015
I received this as a Christmas (2014) gift from my wife, and as the recipient of the gift, I will write the review. I review beers for a living and strangely enough I never would have thought to buy something like this. But sure enough, this little journal is something I almost can't believe I didn't have before! There are tons of useful features - it has a beer/brewing dictionary which comes in super handy, a glassware chart/guide, some historical information, and it's basically like a big (yet little!) beer encyclopedia. The tasting notes portion of the journal is amazing with all sorts of areas for writing specific details of any given beer in. Each entry page offers spots to jot down all sorts of characteristics, some of which I honestly never often thought about while writing a formal review - including (some of) the following: Brewery, name of beer, type of beer, temp. enjoyed at, area enjoyed at, time enjoyed at, bottled or draught, color, aroma, body, etc etc. The list goes on and on. It's surprisingly feature packed, yet amazingly organized and organized. The build quality is superb - high quality materials and hard cover. It's just an amazing and extremely useful little journal, and packs a ton of features in a compact form factor. I totally recommend this to anyone looking to begin (or continue) taking tasting notes!
