After all the introductory stuff, we get to the heart of the Journal, which is about 90 pages to enter details, notes and other useful information about beers that the reader personally samples. At the beginning of this section is a checklist of all the different styles presented above so you can add page cross-references to your journal entries. After the main journal portion, there is a shorter section for beer festivals, and some tidbits on food pairings and glassware. Overall this is an extremely handy reference and a fun way to keep track of my beer tasting experiences. I use it in conjunction with "1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die", which is also a highly recommended title.
UPDATE 8/25/11: I have nearly filled up my 90 available pages for beer ratings, which means two things. First, I'm getting ready to order another of these fine journals. And second, I drink way too much beer (and I have the gut to prove it).
UPDATE 11/17/12: Journal number 2 is nearly full, time to order a third copy. Absolutely loving this little book.
This is a good gift for a novice or a (wannabe) pro beer drinker. The journal is not as gimmicky as some others out there, and is far ore substantial. Anyone who has gone to a beer festival or a tasting tour would be able to put this to good use.
Would consider buying for others...maybe even for his friends so that they can have a new male-bonding activity!
I get the idea of having a guide to styles and all that stuff in the front, but when buying a journal, that's exactly what I want. A journal. I already have several texts on beer and didn't need this condensed and brief version of beer styles.
So cicerones, or even avid beer drinkers should probably skip this one.
