I originally read this book while studying for my Certified Cicerone Exam (it's practically the textbook for the exam). When the second edition came out on Audible, I decided to listen to it again as a refresher before giving some beer lectures. This is extremely information dense and parts of it do not especially lend themselves well to an audio format. But, as a refresher on the information, it was great. This is a great 101 type book. There are lots of other books that delve deeper on some of ...more

If you're trying to learn about beer, this books is outstanding. It has to be one of the best medium-length guides to all things beer, including tasting, history by region, a bit on brewing, serving, glassware, a bit on draught systems, flavors, off-flavors, colors, a bit on pairings, and fairly extensive (though limited) introduction to all styles, eve historical ones.

A great book, not just for learning about tasting beer from a professional point of view. It's well written, bright and approachable for anyone with any level of knowledge of craft beer. Highly recommended, especially if you enjoy learning about the history and nature of both new and historic styles of beer from throughout the world.

Fascinating book, very well designed and informative. In addition to guiding a would-be beer taster on the complexities of various tastes and aromas, it provides a nice survey of the history of beer throughout the world, as well as the mechanics and economics of brewing. Who knew there was so much to know about beer!?

An amazing volume for the beginner beer geek with PLENTY of good stuff for the expert as well. I particularly appreciated the overview of historical styles and then the coverage of styles themselves. Good stuff. Certainly feels like the perfect intro for anyone who wants to do the whole Cicerone thing.

The definitive text on beer for the non-brewer. Packed with so much information on the history and geographical origins of beer, profiles of numerous beer styles, how to taste and how to pair with food. Content heavy, but not at all dry reading. Mosher informs, entertains and guides the reader to a better understanding of historical and craft brews.

I will read anything related to beer, especially if it gives me great tips on how to do beer tastings; and this book really does! I really enjoyed the brief history of beer, the books photos, illustrations, layout, and the exciting lists of beers that need to get on my list to taste.
