    The UK uses a different brewing process than the US beer makers, who were mostly German in the 1800s.

    It really depends on the type of beer, the type of malt, and the specific yeast used. A lager is a lager anywhere on earth, and are fermented using a bottom fermenting yeast (Saccharomyces pastorianus) at cool temperatures over a relatively long period of time, while ales are fermented with a top fermenting yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) at much warmer temperatures.

    A lot of American beer is watered down panther pee lager as far as you can tell by taste. To make this nasty stuff palatable, we chill it a lot. U.S. beer is served at 35–40°F (1.67°-4.45°C), while U.K. beer is served around 50–55°F (10°-12.78°C). Also, American beer runs 5% ABV (alcohol by volume) vs. about 4% for the average British beer (though this varies).

    There are good beers in the U.S. I'm fond of Shiner Bock, which is essentially a dark lager, which so far as I know is only available in Texas. But I like porters a lot, and I can't stand IPAs!

    Sad that our stronger beer, going by ABV, is worse than the British stuff... ;->

    who way prefers Belgian beers, ales, etc.; NO HOPS! :D

    Not all were 5% alcohol. In California, about 1967, they had weaker beer fr the 18 to 21 group. 3.2% alcohol. And Near Beer, tasted and looked like beer, but less than a thousandth of one percent alcohol. I forget how many zeros to the right of the decimal place, but it was more than 3.

    Can you brew beer from bananas? o_O

    Although, from what I've heard (and experienced), in the far East, they have either "beer," which is at or below a certain ABV, and "wine," which is EVERYTHING beyond that point, from an additional 1% beyond beer to like 200 Proof or so. No third category. ;->

    And according to lots of sci-fi "colonizing of other planets" stories, one of the first things we humans try to do is see what native things can be fermented... ;)

    I think ideal for Uk beer is natural cellar temp which is around 9-11c - near enough :) Used to work as a cellarman in a uk pub years ago and 50f was the prefered target temp for the cellar - so all the natural casks were at that temp.
