Would you like some  Ethyl Acetate, Isoamylacetate, Acetaldehyde, Acetic
Acid, or Iron Sulfat in  your beer?  How about a taste of Vanillin or Humulus
Lupulius?  Everyone attending the DB15's February meeting said yes as they
were treated to Part Two of a seminar on sensory evaluation of beer
presented by master brewers DJ Soboti and Jeff Levine.

Chemicals were added to a base (Miller LIte) to simulate off and on flavors that
might typically be found in beer.  Members enjoyed (?) tastes such as nail
polish, rusty cans, burnt wood and decaying apples which can be caused by
contamination, incomplete fermentation, or contact with iron.  Those were
followed by the desirable flavors of oak and hops simulated by adding Vanillin
and Humulus Lupulus to the base.  The seminar concluded with a free form
tasting of a variety beers.

Thanks to DJ and Jeff for a great meeting!!
