How do you become well versed in identifying and understanding off flavors in beer? On this episode of the All About Beer Podcast we talk with two experts who have spent their careers helping to keep unwanted aromas and flavors out of your favorite pint.

From common faults like Diacetyl, Acetaldehyde, Oxidation, and more, to some of the more obscure ones, hosts Don Tse and Em Sauter make sure every beer drinker is ready in the battle against bad taste.

Our guests: Aimee Garlit, a Sensory Technologist at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Cara Simpson of Cara Technology which makes AROXA Certified Flavour Standards.
