Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Two canned lagers, lager A (5% abv with late hop character) and lager B (4% abv) stored for 0, 7, 14, 21 and 28 days at 4, 12, 30 and 37°C were scored by trained sensory assessors (10) for liking and stale and related attributes of: cabbagy, cardboard, catty, grainy, honey, leathery, metallic, musty, skunky, and sour. Principal component analysis explained 80% data variance in 3 significant (p < 0.05) and 75% in 4 significant factors for A and B, respectively. In both lagers, aging correlated significantly with stale, cabbagy and musty and in A with metallic and sour and in B with catty and skunky. Partial least squares regression (PLS1) models showed good explanations: stale had regression coefficients of 0.88 (calibration) and 0.84 (validation) for A, and 0.96 and 0.91 respectively, for B; for liking 0.92 and 0.90 for A and 0.96 and 0.93 for B. For both lagers, liking was positively correlated with honey and grainy, and inversely with staling attributes. Lagers from 30°C were ranked for liking by 40 consumers against fresh as a hidden reference. Significant (p = 0.05) ranking of A, but not B, correlated with that of trained assessors.
