This week we drink really really bad beer. No, we’re not jumping into a Macro show .. we’re doing Off Flavors.
We target the 6 off flavors that you are required to know if you are planning on becoming Certified Cicerone®. They are Acetaldehyde, Diacetyl, Dimethyl Sulfides or DMS, Isoamyl Acetate or “esters”, Trans-z-Nonenal or “papery” and Infection.
We talk about how the brain will bring a scent or flavor to the fore front when someone points out the flavor, and how some people are more sensitive to certain off flavors then other.
We cover some of the other off flavors you might find in a beer and discuss the reasons why these are in your beer.
Enjoy the show, and until next week Know what you drink!
