Beer Tasting Tips
In addition to the refreshing quality of beer, it can be fun to try all the different flavors, especially at craft breweries with various creative brews. When evaluating a beer, there are a few other components to pay attention to.
The first thing you want to notice is the aroma. Bring the beer close to your nose and observe what you smell. Is it sweet, nutty, or smoky? What about the hops? Are they piney, citrusy, or floral? Secondly, evaluate the appearance and notice the color, clarity, carbonation, etc. Then take note of the body; that is how the beer feels on the palate — thick or thin, light or heavy, flat or carbonated. Finally, combine them with the taste and consider your overall impression. Remember that everyone's taste in beer is different, and different beers suit different moods and occasions.
