Q. Is colder beer better beer?
A. No. This load of bushwah is pushed by breweries that don’t want you to notice the flavorless quality of their products.
Ice-cold beer numbs your taste buds. A beer’s subtleties — assuming they have any, which is a rash assumption with many beers from the mega-breweries — are lost.
Most higher quality beers are best when chilly, not Rocky Mountains-in-dead-of-winter cold. In fact, high-alcohol barrel-aged brews are best when cool, not cold, as the higher temperatures allow some of the deeper flavors to emerge.
