For everyone who has known the pleasure of a pint, Randy Mosher explores and explains the tasting experience, guiding readers to a better understanding of how every batch of beer is affected by recipe formulation, brewhouse procedures, yeasts, fermentations, carbonation, filtration, packaging, and much more. Readers will learn to identify the scents, colors, flavors, and mouth-feel of all the major beer styles. There are also chapters on proper serving and storage conditions, and classic beer and food pairings. Finally, the book includes a style-by-style compendium of the different brews within major beer families, including American craft brews, British lagers, German ales, and Belgian Dubbels. For each style, Mosher includes historical and regional facts, taste and aroma characteristics, seasonal availability, food pairings, and a few terrific recommendations for readers to sample.

I very much enjoyed this book. All the material included in the book was laid out plainly and the book was thoroughly researched. Mr. Mosher provide a wealth of information on how we as humans interact with this alcoholic beverage (whether via taste, smell, mouthfeel, etc.). He provides good advice on tasting and how outside factors might influence what each of us perceives. Plus much much more.

I only wish he would have spend more time on beer and food pairings, but there are many books out there that deal with that.

I would recommend this book to those individuals that are just entering the world of craft beer. The book has a good bit of detail, but not anything that a novice couldn't understand.

Well done.
