Summary
Beer color is an essential component of the overall sensory perception of the product. Color is experimentally obtained by using a spectrophotomer to determine the absorbance or transmittance of the sample. This method determines the color of beer by the spectrophotometric color method, the photometric method, and tristimulus analysis.
