9 Summary of Week 3
Taste and smell are complex senses that give us the ability to recognise a massive range of chemical components in our food and drink. They give us enjoyment but also can warn us of poor quality.
You should now be able to:
- provide insight into what makes a champion beer
- discuss the biological process behind taste and describe the different categories of taste
- discuss the biological process behind smell and explain what volatiles are
- explain what happens when a beer is spoiled.
Next week you will look further at the large-scale brewing process and how science and engineering turned brewing from a microscale cottage venture into a large-scale commercial enterprise.
You can now go to Week 4.
