Serving Beer: Admiration

After the beer is poured, it can be fully admired, with its color on display, its aroma wafting in the air, and its body crowned by a well-formed head. A test of both a quality beer and a quality pour is the height of the beer's initial head, which for many styles should be about as high as two fingers are wide.

Confirm the portion with the Plimsoll line, which on quality glassware marks the level for the glass capacity. Do NOT cheat others or yourself with the portion!

Congratulations, you are now ready to evaluate the beer and enjoy it!
