5.0 out of 5 stars
Great Gift, 4 Dec. 2009
This book is fantastic but rather cruel in the way it makes you want to try so my tempting beers and I wouldn't recommend reading it without a fine ale or cold one to hand! It's comprehensive, from the nuts and bolts basics, (what's the difference between Fuggles and Goldings?) to being a reference for choosing the very best beer, at home, Europe and the furthest corners of the world, including the Americas, Far East and even Africa. Protz is surely the expert's, expert and this is the first book of his I've read, it was great present. I've got a quality list of beers to find on holiday and a firkin full of information to impress the landlord on Saturday!
