Discovering the Tastes of Beer

Most people simply like to sip, enjoy, and relax when it comes to drinking beer. This uncritical approach can be just the ticket on a hot summer day or after a hard day of work. Nevertheless, there are situations where a more focused approach to tasting beer is required. Possibly, the most critical analysis of beer can happen in competitions, where one beer is judged against another or according to the archetype of a particular beer style. However, there are many other applications. Sometimes you might dissect the flavor of an American IPA before pairing it with your favorite chunk of bleu cheese, or perhaps you might check for quality of taste of an imported Lambic before sharing it with your friends at a dinner party. Whatever the case may be there are over 300 recognized flavors that can occur in beer, and we have over 10,000 taste buds in our mouth biting at the bit to taste them.
