When you look at the web site there are "news items" from 2003 when he released the last update. Most people I know, even those who started with Promash, now use BeerSmith. BeerTools is also out there but not as intuitive or easy to use as BeerSmith, though there is a new version that just came out. I have both BeerSmith and BeerTools and prefer BeerSmith for ease of use as well as greater functionality. Brad from BeerSmith also offers excellent support and contributes to the community. They all offer free trials for 21 to 30 days so download them and check them out. There are other options for Mac that I'm not familiar with.

This time I would like to focus more on how to taste. The facts and styles are pretty easy to convey but how do you best teach someone (or yourself) what something tastes like? We use a lot of words in judging that do have commonly accepted meanings. Words like bready, roast, citrus, and floral are pretty common and obvious aromas and flavors (mostly). But what about the odder flavors and subtle flavors? What do you use to teach someone else what you are tasting? Distinguishing between different malts or different hops? Resources? Books?
