This training is aimed at Tasting Panel members who currently are involved with judging CAMRA's Champion Beer of Britain, either locally or nationally, or are proposing to get involved in the future. It will also be helpful to people organising beer judging for CAMRA at any level.
By the end of the session, you will be able to:
• State the key criteria in judging beer and explain how different factors can influence any judging
• List the criteria of what makes a good beer judge and the pitfalls that can occur
• With the help of notes, identify some of the more usual off flavours in beer and where they can come from
• With the use of CAMRA's beer style sheets, be able to state the differences between different beer styles
And to demonstrate this knowledge by judging three rounds of beer 'competitions' to CAMRA's standards.
At the end, you will have the option of either taking a short quiz, which if you pass, you will receive a certificate of competence or you can choose not to take the quiz and gain a certificate of attendance. This course is accredited by People 1st, who are part of the Guild of Hospitality.
The course will cover:
• How people taste
• How we assess a beer for CAMRA's Champion Beer of Britain competitions
• How the environment and the judge themselves can influence judging
• What makes a good judge and what to be aware of (including objectivity versus subjectivity)
• What makes a good Chair of a Judging Panel
• Some of the more usual off flavours
• CAMRA's beer styles
• Three practical judging sessions
The course will start promptly at 11am and will last around 4.5 hours. Please ensure you have eaten before the training.
The course is being given by Master Trainer, Christine Cryne.
