I am enjoying a Hoegaarden, which leads me to the question: what is the world's greatest beer. A great beer should have three characteristics: flavor, finish and arrogance. The first two are self-explanatory. A beer must be arrogant, because a crucial aspect of liquid refreshment is conveying an image of superiority. Without further ado, my top five after the jump.
1) Duvel. Perfect. 10/10/10.
2. Hoegaarden. 10/8/10. Only misses because of a slightly flat finish.
3. Rogue Dead Guy. 8/10/7 Great beer, modern American Classic, but the attempt at a communist "image" falls a little short.
There're surely more, but it's a junk so let's talk about it in the comments.
