Jackson was the great beer writer. As a means of introducing standards to his own ratings and writings, he pioneered the use of stylistic categories withing which to judge beer. But his own palette, not arbitrary categories, was always the ultimate judge of a beer--was it any good? Unfortunately far too many of those who have come after him have been unable ever to shake the tyranny of style. There question is always does it fit within its purported style. Not do I like this. Jackson, on the other hand, was willing to invent new styles to accommodate beers that were superior but sui generis. And his ability to describe the taste of a unique beer in prose (rather than lists of words cribbed from scoring sheets) was unsurpassed. ( )
