Beer Flavor Wheel


Learn to distinguish the flavors and aromas in beer with this handy Beer Flavor Wheel!


The main flavors you will encounter are derived from the four primary ingredients used to make beer: water, malt, hops, and yeast.  Secondary variables that affect the flavor in your beer arise from barrel-aging, alcohol, adjunct sugars, and bacteria.


The ability to detect and recognize the flavors and aromas in your beer will not only improve your understanding of beer as a whole, it will allow you to articulate your drinking experience to better sound like a true aficionado.
