The Cyclops Scheme













Cyclops Beer is a way of describing beer so that you can find out quickly and easily what a beer will look, smell and taste like.


It tells you whether a beer is hoppy or sweet and helps you to discover what you like and what you don't, so that choosing a beer becomes easier in the future.


Over 1500 beers have been Cyclopsed and the Cyclops scheme is now becoming widely used in pubs so please look out for it. You can visit their website to find out more.
