|Next Meeting - Feb. 19, Sunday, 4 PM at the Gaslight
To really know beer you need to know be able to critically
evaluate its characteristics using the common language of
beer sensory analysts. It is essential therefore to
understanding the flavor and aromatic characteristics
attributable to the full range of beer styles. The January
meeting did just that as brewers DJ Soboti and Jeff Levine
conducted a training session that gave us a basic
introduction to sensory analysis, a technical foundation for
recognizing some of the most important beer flavors, and
techniques for identifying them in commercial beers.
Many thanks to DJ and Jeff for a truly great meeting!!
