The Complete Idiot's Guide to Beer Tasting will provide readers with a comprehensive introduction to understanding and enjoying the vast styles and complex characteristics of beer. Understanding and enjoying beer is no longer a simple process, as beer has gone from a world of relatively small offerings from major brewers to a universe of literally hundreds of unique styles from craft brewers around the world. Like wine, the taste and subtle characteristics of beer can be affected by a number of different components including the brewing style, the yeasts and hops that determine taste and character, how the various grains are used in brewing, and more. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Beer Tasting is not a guide to brewing, it's a guide to tasting, understanding, and enjoying what has become a complex and often confusing process of enjoying one of the world's oldest beverages. Readers will learn the brewing process and how it can affect a beer, how to recognize tasting notes and aromas, how to identify unique styles, how to taste and enjoy them properly; even how to select the right glassware and serving temperature for maximum enjoyment.
