Summary
This method is used with trained tasters to obtain a systematic description of the flavor of samples under test, for example, in the evaluation of test brews, or in quality control, or to train and perfect assessors. Additionally, this method can be used to profile competitors of a brand to determine differences among your beers and other leading brands. Apply the test to any beer, wort, water, and other brewery samples or, more frequently, to any group of 2-6 samples to be compared.
