Ten Great Beers

Beer is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in the world and also one of the oldest.  The ten beers I have selected are not only of excellent quality but also beers that I strongly recommend.

Belgium is a country which produces hundreds of beers.  Three which are outstanding are Kriek, a cherry beer, Framboise, a raspberry beer and Hoegaarden, a beer with flavours which include coriander and orange peel.

Germany has a wheat beer called Weissbeer which is light in colour and very refreshing.  It is a beer with a lot of foam.

The Czech Republic has a dark beer called Gambrinus which is very popular.  It is one of my favourite dark beers.

Ireland produces two very popular beers.  They are Guiness, a strong dark beer and Kilkenny, a beer which is not as dark as Guiness and is very creamy.

Mexico has beers that are often enjoyed with lime.  One such beer is Tecate.  It is a light beer which is very refreshing on a hot day.

Scotland is the home of McEwan's Ale.  It is a dark beer but tastes sweet with a hint of caramel.

Japan produces a very popular beer called Asahi Super Dry.  It is a light beer which is undoubtedly the most famous of Japanese beers.

Many kinds of beer are produced all around the world.  However, a few beers are so special that they distinguish themselves from the rest.  The fruit-flavoured beers of Belgium, the wheat beer of Germany, and the sweet Scottish ale called McEwan's are examples of such beers.
