I wish I could take a beer course by Randy Mosher. This book makes the subject so understandable and was a great read. It covers some history, some chemistry, some politics, some biology, some botany, some culinary arts - who knew that the "simple" beverage of beer had so many connections.
The author explains why beer tastes the way it does, how to pair it with foods, what goes into judging beer, and a whole lot more. He talks about the effect that the shape of the beer glass will have on the ultimate beer tasting experience. He explains the different ingredients in beer and how not only each ingredient affects the flavour, but also how even the different ways the ingredients are prepared will affect the end product. He also discusses what makes a lager different from an ale, why some beers are dark and others pale, what light beer really is and why there is such a range in alcohol content. He tells us how beer gets that chocolate or coffee flavour, how to pour a beer to get the best and longest lasting head, how long a beer will keep (and why) and even tells us why brown beer bottles are superior to green ones which are better than clear ones (blue light interacts with a chemical in the hops to make your beer go skunky - and brown glass is the best filter for blue light).
All in all, this is the best beer book I've ever come across and anyone who wants to know more about this wonderful beverage should own a copy.

Tasting Beer is fascinating reading if you've ever wanted to improve your knowledge of beer. This text leads you through the history and processes of creating beer, while following through with how our senses perceive the bubbly stuff. The philosophy of the book is simple; we often sit down with a brew to relax, and what better way to clear your mind than to appreciate all the subtle details of the golden brew you hold in your hand.

I bought this book as a gift for my family. As someone who is a big beer nerd and is really interested in beer, I liked this book. What I like even more about it is just how accessible it is to the average consumer. You don't need to be really into beer to enjoy this book. It does a great job of explaining the different kinds of beer, and what to look for in a beer.

I really enjoyed the easy reading, the flow of the styles, and the more advanced knowledge that was contained in this book. It really does cover a broad range of in depth material without ever feeling too technical.
Anyone who wants to know more about beer and how to enjoy it would like this book.
Also an excellent primer to the cicerone beer server exam.
4 out of 5 only because if you want more advanced technical information it be found elsewhere, however this book is not lacking in information.
