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.
However, we were assigned random chapters in our class so the information wasn't always included in the assigned chapters. By that I mean, if we were assigned chapters 3-4, well chapter 3 is a continuation of chapter 2, so you would start out not knowing terms because were explained/described back in chapter 2. I know its not a "textbook" but had someone left a comment like mine, i would of been better prepared.
When I started homebrewing it was suggested to me to read "How To Brew" by John Palmer, which is a great book but I feel that when I re-read it after this book it will solidify a lot of the info and I would suggest both to anyone interested in getting in to homebrewing, even though thats not exactly the point of the book.
I love craft beer and like to travel around tasting as many beers as I can. This book really helped me to understand why I like certain types of beer and the interesting facts behind the styles.
If you're at all interested in beer, don't miss this great new book!
Tasting Beer covers everything from tasting terminology, to bottle handling, to style breakdowns, to pairings, and everything in between.
Lots of info but not overbearing at all. Well paced and structured in a format that is easily used as a reference, especially for pairings and general beer info.
he Kindle version didn't take away from the content at all.
A book every beer lover should read- noob and seasoned beer judges alike.
There is also a great 'Additional Reading' guide at the end that is really useful for taking any additional steps in your study of beer.
