Day 85

All our work in Sensory Evaluation–colour, aroma, flavour, styles–came down to ten blind tastings today, worth 30% of our final grade. For each blind, we had to describe colour, head, aroma, taste, body and finish, then correctly identify the style of beer. (Bonus marks for correctly identifying the actual brand of beer.) The only hint we had was that the first five were lagers, the final five were ales.

Although I did miss some of the styles, I correctly ID’d one brand of lager and two ales.

Now on to next week’s test: blind tastings of off-flavours. Gnnnk!
