The phrase "diluted beer" will lead much to the bewilderment of any American or Western Europeans. They have not accepted to dilute this wonderful drink. He had them, and without dilution with water was delicious. Moreover, in case of detection of such blasphemy the owner of the beer were not only huge penalties but also the worst – a bad reputation with all the consequences. And, most important, they have been so always since time immemorial.

The beer is diluted: background

Another thing we do. In the USSR, the consumers of draft beer hardly knew the taste undiluted. The absence at the bar signs "no beer" visitors were fascinated – there's beer! And what is there – the tenth question.

In the Soviet pubs beer diluted always. Sometimes just mercilessly. No wonder it is a beer with a salary of 100 rubles was considered very rich. And get this, it would seem, a very prestigious position without connections or a solid bribe was virtually impossible.

Now everything is different. The market has put everything in its place. Beer for every taste and color excess. Then at least be neat to sell. And modern loose equipment interferes with frauds. And still know the difference diluted beer from the authentic necessary.

The signs of a good beer

What is the diluted beer? This, above all, low-quality beer. And the quality of the beer depends on many factors. For example, diluted with water, the product is very similar beer with a lack of carbon dioxide. Insufficiently carbonated beer tastes very watery.

So you just need to learn to distinguish qualitative beer from a bad one. And not so important, what are the causes of poor quality of beer on sale: ruined it at the factory or in the pub.

The most important purely external quality factors of the beer is beer foam. Its absence may be due to several reasons.
1. Supercooled beer.
2. In beer, the lack of carbon dioxide. It's either poorly aerated or exhausted.
3. The beer is diluted.

Excess foam can also talk about its specific requirements. And the reasons are others.
1. Beer pregatitoare.
2. The beer is warm.
3. Illiterate beer poured into the glass.

Beer foam at good beer should be thick and have a thickness of 4-5 centimeters. It needs to be sustainable and to maintain the initial level of a minimum of 4 minutes. If the foam falls off quickly, it is a big minus. In addition, to the extent of emptying of beer foam in a good drink is always on the side of the vessel.

And finally, taste. Unfortunately, to determine the quality of the beer taste, not everyone can. So if you don't belong among beer connoisseurs, the state of beer foam you will be absolutely enough to judge the quality of the beverage.

If you are ranked to true beer connoisseurs, and with eyes closed will be able to define the taste of a quality drink. You must keep in mind: the optimum temperature of beer consumption should be +8 +10 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, the taste will be distorted, and even the quality of the drink may seem disgusting.
