Herb and Spice Beer
Herb and spice beers use herbs or spices (derived from roots, seeds, fruits, vegetable, flowers, etc.) other than or in addition to hops to create a distinct (ranging from subtle to intense) character, although individual characters of herbs and/or spices used may not always be identifiable. Underhopping often, but not always, allows the spice or herb to contribute to the flavor profile. Positive evaluations are significantly based on perceived balance of flavors. The brewer should list what herbs and/or spices are used, and may also list a classic style of base beer, to allow for accurate judging. Beer entries not accompanied by this information may be at a disadvantage during judging.
