Evolving Beer Styles [Link]

Beervana links to the latest GABF beer styles guide. The styles are only going to continue to get more complicated. I did find this bit interesting:

Each style description is purposefully written independently of any reference to another beer style. Furthermore, as much as it is possible, beer character is not described in terms of ingredients or process. These guidelines attempt to emphasize final evaluation of the product and try not to judge or regulate the formulation or manner in which it was brewed, except in special circumstances that clearly define a style.
