Monday’s ad for Budweiser, from 1947. Showing a young boy whose report card was less than stellar trying to soothe the beating he was about to get by bringing his father a tray of Budweiser. I’m not quite sure he really thought this through. Is getting Dad drunk really the way to go here? And what exactly does “Deportment Excellent” mean? I guess I’m getting a failing grade, too.

The Hop Flavour Spectrum has been created through years of research, experimentation and conversations with brewers, and by tasting a few beers along the way. It’s what we believe, and we want to build the spectrum with what you think too. Our hop varieties are divided into four flavour profiles: fruit, floral, spice and resin. This allows brewers to compare varieties and get an understanding of how each hop may impact the flavour of beer.
Then they took that scheme and placed the hops that their company carries on the spectrum, depending on each hops’ characteristics. Beverage World, in describing it, “The Hop Flavour Spectrum goes beyond the limitations of chemical analysis to provide an effective tool for comparing varieties and understanding how each hop may impact the flavor of beer.” You can click on each variety listed to see additinoal information about it. It would be cool to see even more varieties added to the spectrum.
