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.
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.
NOTE: The eBook version of this will be released in a few months (so don't cave to the high $ secondary market), and Brewers Publications are currently in the process of creating a new beer sensory book.
