Carrying out a taste test –Part 1

This two-part contribution addresses the extent to which consumers become aware of the taste of ethanol itself in beverages. The taste test developed by Sommer was used as a method of measurement in a series of tastings. It has been described in a multi-part article in 2011 [1-5]. This part of the contribution briefly summarises and repeats the necessary fundamentals of tasting practice. Preliminary results are presented, these will be supplemented in the second part of the contribution.
