I purchased this book when I worked for a large macro-brewer in order to pass the Cicerone tests. This book is an absolute technical guide on how to understand and enjoy all kinds of beers. It has colorful commentary and excellent resources to help you understanding this delicious drink.
For all you wondering about how hard the Cicerone Test is, I passed the Cicerone Beer Server test with flying colors. It is time based and multiple choice. Questions will bounce around from ingredients, process oriented, taste, smell, draft system technique, and situational. If you have the access to pre-tests, take the pre-test about 10 times. Just keeping doing it over and over and over again, you will see questions if not the same, VERY similiar and you will know how to answer them.
Comment if you have any questions.
After you read this book, you will probably get adventurous. I did. I went to a brew pub in Chicago, reviewed the available beers, and ordered a "Belgian Trippel" that they had on tap. It was excellent. I wouldn't have even known these existed, and definitely not what to expect when I drank one, if I hadn't read this book.
I highly recommend this book.
