 Beer Tasting Seems To Be A Female Forte

Since it is widely believed that women make for better beer tasters than men, a new brewery all set to open in Australia's Warnervale on the Central Coast is expected to hire more women as professional beer tasters than men.

With the opening of the new Bluetongue Brewery, almost 100 jobs will be created, out of which 10 and 15 will be of full-time beer tasters, and that too without any experience.

The 120 million dollars brewery will open in late 2010, and is expected to produce enough bottles daily to stretch 109km.

And to make sure that every beer tastes right, owners are expecting that the majority of the jobs would go to women because they make better beer tasters.

"Women typically are better able to detach a smell from the object," the Courier Mail quoted Bluetongue's head brewer Tim Williams as saying.

Williams said that women could smell a liquid in a cup and say "strawberry" whereas men "have to see the strawberry".

Unlike wine, beer tasters must swallow.

"A lot of beer's bitter characters are detected at the back of the throat," Mr said Williams.
