Everyone finally drinks it as they enjoy it. Despite the insistence is a lot and therefore anyone dare to give some advice on that. If you are a beer lover then you can follow these tips to enjoy this drink more than just as a drink.
- The beer must be taken in a glass cup.
The glass offers very obvious advantages such as the fact that we can see what we are taking; this already in itself is a spectacle. The glass does not keep odors or flavors that contaminate what we are going to drink and also – unlike plastic, cardboard or foam – prevents the gas from reacting. Do not freeze the glass, unless you are drinking a light lager that tastes like water.
- Drinking from bottle
If you take the bottle then take the bottle by the neck so it does not heat so quickly by the heat of the hand.
- Only bad drinks were frosty
By cooling too much a beer loses much of its aroma and flavor. The temperature between 5 and 9 degrees Celsius is generally good, although there are some that you may like hotter. While it is true that beer is not “on time”, unless you live in Iceland or Patagonia and you are outdoors, you should keep a cool temperature. Any beer emits more aroma and flavor when taken fresh than when it is taken to freezing point. It’s better to preserve the bottles or cans in stubby holders to maintain the correct cooling.
- Serving beer in the glass
When serving your beer in the glass, try to leave two fingers of foam. Although the foam itself does not contribute to the flavor, it does function as a protective layer to preserve the aromas, flavors and carbonation inside the container.
- Always look at the expiration date
Remember that there are few beers that can be stored for more than three months as long as they stay cold. Unpasteurized craft beers should take care of them more since they are more susceptible to developing microorganisms that alter their condition.
- Turn them gently
If you drink an unfiltered beer you will notice that by not moving them, residues settle in the bottom. In most cases you should turn them gently so that these residues are integrated into the body of the liquid. However, there are some others that it is recommended not to mix and it is necessary to take care that these residues remain in the glass when it will serve as they can sour the flavor. Generally that is explained by the manufacturer on the label.
