Good bad not so great reader

If you're using this audiobook to study for Cicerone or BJCP exams beware of pronunciation. The readers of this audiobook butcher some very key terminology.

omg can I please get the Clif notes version!!!

so, there's some valuable info here but there's an unnecessary 7-8 hours of waxing poetic, rephrasing poetic lyric crap, and quoting texts from the middle ages.

THE Modern Standard

Randy Mosher’s Tasting Beer 2nd Edition is the modern standard by which all other beer books are measured. It’s the first book anyone should read in their quest for Cicerone certification or even just to get a better deeper understanding of anything and everything Beer.

Simplifying the complex world of beer & brewing

A must read for anyone interested in beer, history and/or culinary arts. I also found that following along with the 2nd edition book helpful, especial later chapters about style.

audio book. ftw

narrator didn't seem bored like some can with nonfiction. have the book can't find time to sit down. listened to this over 2 days while at work. l am trying to build a better vocabulary for what I'm tasting. food pairings and beer cocktails seem really well thought out. If you like beer at all. this is a good listen. will revisit. in the future for sure

Too much info for an audio book

As a self confessed beer geek I can confirm that this is one of the best beer reference books you can buy.
It works brilliantly as a book that you can duck in and out off and reference beer styles and types at your leisure.
Unfortunately as an audio book it's 'information overload'.
At a colossal 16 hours long it is a challenging listen of facts and figures which goes on and on. Great content no doubt but definitely more suited to a written book.

If you only ever read one book on beer...

If you only ever read one book on beer... this should be it. Great coverage of what beer is, how it came about, where and how the various styles are made, and most importantly, how to taste beer and build your tasting knowledge and experience. It covers the various styles, the basics of brewing (but it is not a book on how to brew beer by any means), tasting, judging and how to enjoy this great beverage. Highly recommended.

<br />Great intro about world of beers and how it's mad

A bit too boring when he gets too much into describing each style. Unless you're into that type of beer it won't be interesting to you

This is not about tasting beer

Gives a history on beer and a description of beer styles but doesn’t go into any in depth tasting information at all.
Sure, it’s not a bad book but mistitled.
