Researchers have identified several hundred different flavours in beer. In this course, we will learn how to identify and describe some of the most common of these beer flavours. We will include positive as well as negative characters. We will demonstrate samples of various beers and flavours, and the participant will acquire knowledge of flavour evaluation of beer.
We have extended our basic flavour evaluation course with two more courses, so that we now offer a complete education as sensory panel leader:
1. Beer Flavour Evaluation
2. Beer Flavour Evaluation 2
3. Sensory Panel Leader
Successful completion of all three courses qualify for our Diploma Sensory Panel Leader.
People involved in production and product development in breweries as well as beer judges, beer enthusiasts, beer journalists, beer bloggers, home brewers and others with interest in beer flavours.
We recommend a basic knowledge of beer production, but it is not required. We suggest that you leave your car at home.
The two flavour evaluation courses will include:
• Recognition Tests, to recognise and name important beer flavours
• True / False Test, to consolidate learning of the flavours
• Stop/Go Test, to apply learning to evaluate the market acceptability of packaged beer.
We will conclude each day by running a validation test, and successful participants will receive a certificate documenting successful recognition of the presented flavours.
The sensory panel leader course will include different sensory methods in theory and practice, treatment of data and how to set up and train a sensory panel.
