Any Beer Geek Will Attest To That

You should note that beers can be classified according to color, alcohol content and beer appellations.

Classification According To Beer Color

Colors can vary and may come in blond, amber, white, dark and flavored. Pretty much like wine association - one who has been quite familiar with the different types of beer, can usually associate a particular beer color to that of its corresponding flavor.

Personal preferences to a color will arise due to this association - as such will be expected to give out a particular flavor as per your experience before. One should also understand however that not in all cases should color be taken to mean only one type of flavor.

As an example, a dark beer would not usually give out that typical bitter sweet caramel flavor. And while this would mean that there would be an exception to the rule on colors and its corresponding flavor, you should admit that this makes beer drinking even more exciting. Wouldn't you want to be surprised as well to how a usual color will result to a flavor you wouldn't normally expect from such?

Beer enthusiasts can't help but be amused with the colors of beer. They can talk hours with fellow beer lovers - and not be bored about it. To them it is a character of beer that is worthy for a discussion - even a long one at that - and preferably with beer on one hand.
