Description

The "33 Beers Tasting Notebook" is a pocket tasting journal that provides an easy way to quickly record cigar tasting notes in a small, convenient notebook format. It’s perfect for cigar novices and pros alike.

This cigar journal is designed for ease of use. It’s tough to hold a notepad in one hand, a pencil in the other, and have another hand left for a stogie. Taking notes with 33 Cigars is as simple as checking a few boxes and entering a few basic facts.

Try as we might, we've never been able to safely carry a hydrometer around, with which to evaluate a beer's terminal gravity, should the brewer not provide that information. But color? Color can be carried. The inside front cover of 33 Beers: Pro Edition includes a foldout swatch book you can use to evaluate your beer's color, and put a number to it..

In larger breweries, color is communicated in terms of SRM - Standard Reference Method. A small sample of beer is put into a small container, and light of a particular wavelength is shown through using a fairly expensive machine. The amount of light passing through (Called "Transmissive Color") is detected, and the machine spits out a number somewhere between 1 and 40-ish.

Your eyes see color a bit differently (called, "Reflective Color," because our eyes register the light which bounces off a beer glass), and since that's what you'll be using, we recommend a different methodology.

For lighter-colored beers (Pilsners, American Lagers, etc.), pour a sample about 2.5 inches deep, and compare it to the swatches inside the front cover of 33 Beers: Pro Edition. For darker beers (think Porters, Stouts, Barleywines), pour a shallow sample. This allows more light to penetrate darker, thicker beers, making comparison easier. By contrast, a "thicker" pour of lighter beers exaggerates color differences — at a half-inch depth, 2 and 4 SRM are pretty much identical. To aid in pouring accuracy, I've included a fill meter on the foldout front cover. In the image below, you can see a 17 SRM Vienna Lager on the left, and a 4 SRM American Lager on the right.

If you're wondering where your beer falls, the inside front cover includes a reference table that includes expected SRM (and ABV, IBU, OG, and TG) values for common beer styles, according to 2015 Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) guidelines.

As with the standard 33 Books, taking notes is as simple as checking a few boxes and entering a few basic facts. In addition to space for noting SRM, this edition adds a "bubble meter" which allows you to evaluate a beer's carbonation level.

The flavor wheel in 33 Beers can be used to quickly recall a beer’s unique flavor long after consumption. For low values of the flavor, fill in dots near the wheel’s center.
