Review Text

  • By Mr. Nicholas R. Gunn on 19 July 2008

    A really good book starts off with the history of real ale and then moves onto the brewing process with just enough detail to be intresting and not boring. Then moves onto the diffrent styles of ale how they were developed and gives examples of each, finishes off with some info about CAMRA (campaign for Real Ale) of which i'm a member.The book is full of lot's of intresting facts which will always come in handy down the pub to impress your friends with your knowledge.

    I bought this a few years ago shortly after joining CAMRA. After further reading, of better researched books, I now realise this is a very misleading, and lazily written, introduction to real ale in which Protz merely repeats every myth there is about its history. So unlike the last reviewer I would certainly not attempt to impress anyone down the pub with information from it!Some of the howlers Protz comes out with are so glaring that they can easily be disproved by reference to standard reference books, e.g. he claims the technological innovations that led to large-scale commercial brewing - I presume he means the steam engine, hydrometer and thermometer - occurred in the nineteenth rather than the eighteenth century. His claim that before the nineteenth century invention of coke it was impossible to produce pale malt and therefore all beer was brown-coloured is also disproved by reference to the writings of Daniel Defoe and Obadiah Poundage, in 1722 and 1760 respectively, who both refer to pale ales.
