Notes for Nerds: Beer Scoring

I use the scoring system described by Charlie Papazian in his book, The Home Brewer's Companion, p. 395. Points can be scored as follows:

CategoryPoints
Bouquet/Aroma1-10
Malt3
Hops3
Other Fermentation Characteristics4
Appearance1-6
Color2
Clarity2
Head Retention2
Flavor1-19
Malt3
Hops3
Conditioning2
Aftertaste3
Balance4
Other Flavor Characteristics4
Body1-5
Drinkability and Overall Impression1-10
Total1-50

The scoring guide rates an Excellent for 40-50; Very Good from 30-39; Good from 25-29; Drinkable from 20-24 and Problematic for those that score less than 20.
