This is part one of an experimental series for me. I recorded a three-part series for people who are interested in pursuing the hobby, but who have no experience. In this series, I'm going to be talking about how exactly we examine, smell, and taste beer, with a final part dealing with some of the more general philosophical issues regarding rating beer.
This is not meant to be complete, and I am definitely interested in hearing people's thoughts, particularly from those new to the hobby. Suggestions for future videos are welcome.
In Part One, I detail the way to pour properly, and talk about some of the things you can learn from looking at beer, and some general aroma notes.
Part Two will deal with issues surrounding taste.
Part Three will consider philosophical issues.
