And Trips! (South) might be characterized as Bill Bryson meets a one-man Yelp. Lots of fun reading, but also plenty of vital information. If you really want to understand beer you need to spend time in Bavaria, and I don’t know of a better book for a beer-focused tourist.
Basically, the little book comes with 33 pages, with the bottom of each looking like this.
It might look a little familiar. I’ve previously posted similar spider charts that graph hop aromas and flavors.
I suspect you might find yourself streamlining the flavor wheel a bit, but after a few beers — perhaps quite a few, depending on the variety you sample — you’ll have an actual picture of what you like.
