Describing a beer flavor can be tricky, especially when it comes to homebrews and craft beer. At Brew Perfect, we’re here to help you create the perfect homebrewed beer, no matter if you’re just starting out in your new workspace, or you’ve been brewing in your basement for years.

When it comes to flavor, there are many words that can be used, and you likely know which flavors (and which words) that you prefer. In this post, we’ll look at some of the most popular!

Bright and Hoppy

When someone calls a beer “bright,” they’re not necessarily referring to the beer’s intelligence. A bright beer is a brew that’s been made to be clear during the filtration and maturation process. Once the beer is carbonated, it’s bottled from the bright tank and is ready to store or serve. The flavor of a bright beer can be citrusy or hoppy, and leaves your taste buds feeling clean after you drink it.

Dark and Toasty

There are many people out there who prefer darker beers, such as stouts and porters. Porters tend to have a dry, fruity flavor, while stouts are often less sweet and have more of a creamy or toasty flavor. Guinness® is probably the world’s most famous stout beer, and if you want to recreate that dark, creamy flavor for your next homebrew, then you’ll need the right unmalted roasted barley.

Brew Perfect loves seeing people across the country create new beers that contain their favorite flavors. If you’re starting a new batch soon, then think about what flavors you want the final product to have. Do you want bright, hoppy, and citrus flavors, or do you prefer dark, toasty, caramel-like flavors? The time of year can determine which flavor you prefer, but the fact of the matter is that a good beer is a good beer in any month.
