AMAZING CLASS. I appreciate beer so much more now! Yes, it is harder than I thought, and more work than expected but it was so worth it. Just read and go to class and you'll do great! Charlie is amazing, best class I've taken at UC Davis so far.

Really interesting professor! Very entertaining but he presented the material really briefly and quickly. Must attend class bc he posts readings and questions. Tests are actually kind of difficult

Outstanding professor and class. Exams are more difficult than one would expect, but if you attend lecture (which is never boring) and do the reading, you'll do fine.

Great professor, great lectures, tests are way harder than you might expect, but most of the answers are in the book.

Class is fun but tests are difficult. Not a walk in the park like I thought it would be. Always attend lectures too since they will be on the test

Take this class! Do reading assignments, listen and show up to lecture. Be mindful the 2nd midterm and final were twice as hard as the 1st midterm. So don't slack off after the fist A. Always drink in moderation...

As mentioned in the earlier reviews, this class is extremely entertaining but the exams are extremely specific and deceptively difficult.

Very knowledgable guy. He is very passionate in beer and teaching. You don't want to miss any of his lecture, because you will miss all the fun.

Class was an informative stand up comedy routine. You won't want to miss class due to the mere entertainment value of Bamforth's lectures. Midterms and final were deceptively hard for being 3 answer multiple choice, but overall an easy class.

He is Charles Bamforth - if someone does not like him as a professor, they have issues. He is funny, clear, engaging, British, and talks about nothing but beer, what else can you ask for? Also he tells you all the questions for the tests, and they are 3 option scantron exams, really? Way to great of a professor to pass up!!!

Hilarious teacher! He's super passionate about the subject which really makes the course interesting, and it's not very hard either. There are some random things to memorize, but not anything ridiculous. The "reading questions" always end up on the exams. Highly recommend, even if you don't need it.

Definitely a class to take at UC Davis. Questions posted at the end of lecture are always on the exams. Make sure to know little details as well as the general ideas/stages of brewing. Exams could be a bit tricky but good class overall. Bamforth is great! Lectures are enjoyable and entertaining.

One of the funnest classes here at UC Davis. Lectures are fun and rarely boring thanks to his dry humor. You get to meet some important people in the beer industry and really get to appreciate beer. He loves to pick on his students and some questions are pulled out of the book (I was fine without it). Do not fall asleep and have a beer.

This is one of the easiest classes at Davis! Charles is one of the funniest teachers too! He makes fun of students/his wife/beer...it's hilarious! An 88 is an A- so pretty generous grading scale. You learn a lot about beer. Midterms are very easy. Buy the book because the questions he asks at the end of lecture that are from the book are on exams.

I was nervous that I wouldnt get an A after getting a B on the 1st midterm. I studied a lot more for the second test and then then the final is straight off of the review sheet. Advice: read over the notes before every test, GO TO CLASS, and you'll be fine. Final is much easier than midterms if you read over everything once and memorize the review

one of the easiest classes at UC Davis! 2 midterms about 25 questions each and 1 final with 50 questions. no need to buy or read the book---WASTE of MONEY!!!!!!! even though the Professor wrote it, there isn't much in there that is needed for the tests. just attend class regularly and study beforehand and you will do well on the tests.

Charlie is a fun guy and runs a straightforward class. Very entertaining and IF you attend class, you have at least an A- locked in. Study about an hour for each test and take home an A. Cool topics about beer in culture, brewing and the science behind it. Even if beer isn't your bag, still recommended. 2 midterms, 1 final, thats it.
