import java.util.*;

public class BeerSelect extends HttpServlet {
public void doPost (HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response)
throws IOException, ServletException {
//response.setContentType("text/html");

//PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();

//out.println("Beer Selection Advice<br>");

String c = request.getParameter("color");

// out.println("<br>Got beer color " + c);

BeerExpert be = new BeerExpert();
List result = be.getBrands(c);

// Iterator it = result.iterator();

Hey Chris,

In your scriptlet code in result.jsp, when you declare the list styles you capitalize it, but in the next line it starts with a lowercase "s". I think maybe fixing that should fix your problem.
