This is the best so far. You should start making the flavorless stuff.

Did you give him a seltzer water?

It really irritates me when I ask my drinking buddies to give me their honest opinion and point out the things they like and don't like about the beer. These guys are fellow craft beer drinker to boot. It's hard to get better at something if you don't know what's "off". I always get "tastes like beer to me", "I didn't get a headache", or "what's this stuff at the bottom of my bottle". I have to get SWMBO (who doesn't like most beer) to give me some kind of feedback. I'll give her a BJCP sheet with the style profile and she'll go off of that.

Why not give your craft beer buddies a BJCP guideline printout as well?

Also, one of the biggest problems in teaching people about beer is that they know what they are tasting but don't know how to properly describe it. Give them all a copy of the flavor wheel! It was really useful for me when I started really picking beers apart.

Thank you Reno_eNVy for the flavor wheel. I've been telling my brother about this. Most of my buddies pretend they can't read when they're drinking, yet we're all engineers or in technical jobs. They just want to get away from their families for a few hours and decompress. My wife, on the other hand, likes to learn new things even if the subject isn't really something that initially interests her. She loves my caramel hard apple cider though.

I'm only about halfway through reading this thread but some of the things I have seen are simply beyond belief haha.

Last weekend I handed a pint of munich dunkel I had made to my girlfriends friend and her boyfriend to have a taste. The girlfriend tasted it and said she really liked it then handed it to her macho boyfriend and went to open one for herself . When her boyfriend gave it a taste the face he made reminded me of my brother at six years old turning his nose up when my mom forced him to finish his broccoli. I had to hold back laughter.

Just kidding. I brewed the cream ale with all simcoe as I had extra simcoe left over from an American IPA. Simcoe flavor and aroma did come through in a small way, and I will repeat the recipe again! It was hoppy to style. Added some small later additions just because it was simcoe. Not a competition beer... just a summer drinker.

I'm finally through the whole thread!!! Woohoo!

I couldn't help but think about two things:

Maybe the name of the thread should be changed to "The funniest comment on your beer." A lot of these are funny, but not necessarily stupid.

I like the flavor wheel. That would help in explaining flavors. It would be awesome for a brewer with A LOT of time to make some mini batches that correspond to the flavor wheel. Each batch would focus on one flavor. Then they would all be bottled in 100 ml bottles. If you want to truly teach someone the terminology, this would be an awesome way. "That's hoppy? No, that's malty. Here, a sample of malty and a sample of hoppy." In fact, it may even be a nice sampler/experiment to improve our own education and palate.

Of course, we all just want to drink good beer and are fine with that. At least, I am. Hell, I barely have the time to brew enough for the SWMBO and I.

You actually wrote a poem about IPAs? Wow. WTG! Care to share?
