Beer Defects

Beer Defects is an application containing detailed information about aroma and flavor defects found in beer. Beer defects – also known as faults – are noticeable and objectionable departures from an acceptable norm.

The application is a complete reference to 12 common defects which may occur, and includes:
• Molecule responsible (chemical name)
• Chemical formula
• Main origins
• Typical concentration in beer
• Approximate flavor threshold
• Possible causes
• Possible treatments
• Possible prevention

FEATURES
Sensory descriptors (what it smells or tastes like) include:
∗ Banana, estery
∗ Nail polish, solvent, glue
∗ Bruised apple, sherry, nutty
∗ Phenolic, smoky, clove-like
∗ Antiseptic, hospital, plastic, vinyl
∗ Cheesy, sweat socks, old hops, putrid
∗ Rancid butter, butterscotch
∗ Rotten egg, sulfidic
∗ Skunky, lightstruck
∗ Canned corn, molasses, vegetal
∗ Cardboard, paper, oxidized
∗ Vinegar, sour
∗ Aroma and flavor defects can be searched by sensory descriptors or by chemical name (molecule responsible for the defect)
∗ General information about sensory thresholds
∗ Good sanitation techniques


WHO COULD USE IT?
Quick and accurate identification of off-aromas and flavors is advantageous for:
• Professional brewers
• Brewery laboratory and cellar staff
• Home brewers
• Instructors for beer programs
• Students in beer programs
• Beer judges
• Bartenders
• Beer merchants and staff
• Restauranteurs
• Beer writers
• Savvy beer consumers

WHY USE IT?
• For brewers, early remedial action can often correct the problem, before the fault becomes more serious or irreversible.

• For beer merchants, avoiding losses associated with defective beers improves the profit margin.

• Beer consumers should also know more about beer off-aromas and flavors so that rejection is based on genuine defects, not unfamiliarity.
