The "Simon & Schuster Pocket Guide to Beer" written by Michael Jackson
contains descriptions and ratings for many different beers. There are
descriptions of different beer styles but this is not the main
objective of this book. "The Essentials of Beer Style" written by Fred
Eckhardt has very specific descriptions of different beer styles along
with things like starting and finishing gravity, color, bitterness
etc. The Malt Extract Special issue of Zymurgy has descriptions and
recipes for different beer styles. You may also want to contact the
American Homebrewers Association about their Beer Judge certification
program. They have a "study package" that will include information
about beer styles.
