"From listing the steps involved in a sensory evaluation project to presenting advanced statistical methods, Sensory Evaluation Techniques, Fourth Edition covers all phases of sensory evaluation. Like its bestselling predecessors, this edition continues to detail all sensory tests currently in use, to promote the effective employment of these tests, and to describe major sensory evaluation practices."



"Dr. Morten C. Meilgaard's [11 November 1928 - 11 April 2009] professional interests are the biochemical and physiological basis of flavor, and, more specifically, the flavor compounds of hops and beer, and the methods by which they can be identified.


In the 1970s, Morten C. Meilgaard created the Beer Flavor Wheel, a graphic description of the flavors, good and bad, in beer.


He is the visiting professor (emeritus) of Sensory Science at the Agricultural University of Denmark. He was the senior technical advisor and vice-president of research (also emeritus) at the Stroh Brewery Company.


He studied biochemistry and engineering at the Technical University of Denmark, where he returned in 1982 to receive a doctorate for a dissertation on beer flavor compounds and their interactions.


After 6 years as a chemist at the Carlsberg Breweries, he worked from 1957 to 1967, and again from 1989, as a worldwide consultant on brewing and sensory testing.


He served for 6 years as director of research for Cerveceria Cuauhtémoc, in Monterrey, Mexico, and for 25 years with Stroh.


At the Agricultural University of Denmark, his task was to establish sensory science as an academic discipline for research and teaching."
