4 tips for tasting your beer

Serving beer

Before tasting a beer, it is necessary to know to serve it well. Kept at the right temperature (tip: add 1 or 2°C to the alcohol percentage, e.g. 9°C for an 8% alcohol Amsterdam beer), serve your beer in a suitable glass, rinsed with cold water and not dried out. The glass should be tilted at about 45°C and the bottle should not touch it.

Let the beer flow slowly and without shaking, and let a light foam neck (2 to 3cm) form on the top.

Observe the beer

Watch your beer The most important thing to remember is that if a residue has settled at the bottom of the bottle, do not empty it completely into your glass to avoid altering the flavors. Once served, pay attention to

  • its visual : cloudy or clear ;
  • its color: brown, beige, white, brown, etc. ;
  • its foam: compact or aerated;
  • its bubbles: fine, persistent or ephemeral.

Smell the beer

A specific smell The taste of the grain or the hops is found in all beers. With your glass in hand, sniff just above it to try to identify the flavor family (cereal for malt or flower/fruit for hops).
Then swirl your beer in the glass to aerate it and smell other flavors (citrus, fruit, caramel, coffee, alcohol, etc.).). Are they strong or light ? Complex or obvious ?

Taste the beer

Now that you have some of the flavors of your beer identified, it’s time to taste it ! Leave the first sip in your mouth for a few seconds. Is the liquid very bubbly, mellow or thick? ? Once you’ve taken that first sip, try to identify the aftertaste that the beer leaves you, sometimes quite different from the taste in your mouth. Are the flavors you taste similar to the ones you smelled (caramel, spices, fruits, etc.)?.) ? Does the taste or aftertaste remain in your mouth for a long time? ?
