Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood

Colour

Make yourself comfortable in a well-lit room. Pour your beer into a glass and take a good, long look.

Describe what you see. Is it clear or cloudy? Does the foam on the head stick around or quickly dissipate? Is that foam "rocky" or "fluffy" and how would you describe its colour? Does the foam leave "lace" on the glass as you sip the beer? And the bubbles? Tight and champagne-like or larger and more bulbous?

Finally, colour: Use as many words as you want to describe it.

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood

Aroma

Did you know the sense of smell accounts for about 80% of flavor perception?

Okay, here we go: Let your freshly-poured glass of beer breathe for a few moments. Now, give it a few brief sniffs. Swirl the glass a bit—like you’ve seen wine-buffs do—and have another whiff. Look past the obvious "smells like beer" responses. What other aromas are you getting? Maybe toasted malts, piney hops, maybe ester-and-phenol-producing yeast? Fruit? Spices?

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood

Taste

Now that you have visually inspected your beer & described its aroma, you can engage in tasting. Remember that tasting is about the transition of flavors from the first sip contact through the finish.

Allow the beer to coat the inside of your mouth. Allow the liquid to run the full gamut of your tongue and hit all those taste bud areas, importantly, the bitterness receptors at the back of the tongue.

Now, describe the length, intensity and quality of the finish.

IBUs

IBUs stands for International Bittering Units. We use the IBU scale to measure of the bitterness of beer, which is provided by the hops used during brewing.

The bittering effect is less noticeable in beers with a high quantity of malt, so a higher IBU is needed in heavier beers to balance the flavor.

From the drinkers of Harvest Sun

If the fat old sun dipping beneath the horizon in the hazy light of a late summer evening were a beer, then "Harvest Sun" would be they name. This is exquisite session ale with a long mellow finish. If I could only drink one type of beer forever more, I would happily succumb to loving matrimony with this old darling. I do.

– Neil

Beautiful, clean and hoppy. Delightful ice cold. Perfect on its own or with a meal. A true winner every time.

– Martin Muir

Another excellent beer… not so strong, but all the better for it.
