Taste or Odor
That offensive ta$te and odor in some beers is easily avoided.
Light starts decay even in pure beer. Dark glass gives the best
protection against light.
"While beer quickly deteriorates when it is
exposed to direct sunlight, such deterioration
although greatly retarded, will eventually take
place in diffused light. Beer exposed to the
rays of the sun will very quickly acquire the
so-called 'skunk taste'."
