Best Recommended Beers

Written by Updated ago

Ah, beers- the holy grail to some, or perhaps most people out there. Be it for a festive season, a celebration, or even an ice cold pint just to finish off the day; beers can really get the job done. Watering holes are found anywhere, but are not always accessible to the average joe and having said that, convenience stores abound carry a range of beers that will virtually provide the right necessity- just as good. Beers range differently out there too, with some carrying light and fizzy flavours, while some linger in a more hoppy and maltier spectrum. All in all, if you need a good pick to your liking, here are some of the best recommended beers you can find out there.

Rankings of all participants as visible on our listings are solely voted by you, our beloved readers. With that said, we would encourage you to please vote for your preferred participants in order to ensure their rightful positions ranking-wise on our portal. Thank you!

    Tiger Beer

    One of the most common beers out there, be it in pubs or convenience stores; Tiger beer is often the common pick for its lower range price and adequate flavours. The beer revolves around a light malt and aroma, often resulting in an astringent sensation with some tang. If you’re going for volume, this is a mediocre choice.

    Carlsberg

    A more hoppy beer that produces a harsher sensation on the palate, Carlsberg is also a common choice when it comes to availability and accessibility. Its carbonation also skews towards the high side, while producing a floral and lemony finish. Not much refined flavours here though, pushing it towards the mediocre side, but great with parties.

    Heineken

    A golden hued beer that is considered a great value for money- Heineken is a popular choice when middle-level priced beers are a criteria. Laced with a skunky sensation and slight metallic after taste, this lager definitely holds a harder body when compared to others in its level. Despite that, it also ends with a surprisingly clean finish, giving the drinker a satisfying slurp.

    Lowenbrau

    Considered as quite an easy drink, this beer is not as harsh as the rest, making it a lighter choice- suitable for a quick sip or a stress reliever. It’s also carries a very forwarding malt, which results in a much sweeter sensation. In other words, this is a very suitable women’s drink when it comes to beer.

    Kirin Ichiban

    A pale beer that is often found in Japanese establishments, supermarkets, and some convenience stores- Kirin Ichiban is a rather fizzy drink with adequate carbonation that is, well, suitable with sushi and Japanese food flavours. A beer that is laden with good froth and malt structure, definitely suitable for many types of palates out there.

    Golden Pride

    Golden Pride isn't your average glass of beer as it is an ale, after all. Regardless, sometimes in life, you'll want something strong and rich. In fact, Golden Pride is so well packed with flavour that it literally kicks you in the face if you're trying it for the first time. Reoccurring consumers might enjoy that richness and depth of flavour that it provides and cannot be found in another other sort of ale except for stouts.

    Asahi

    Asahi has been around for an incredibly long time, even in Malaysia. Everyone knows that they're famed for their dryness, which is something that Asahi excels in. It also has a distinct balance of malty and biscuity flavour that almost anyone can enjoy. It isn't very strong, nor is it extremely rich. In fact, it works best with some snacks of skewered meat on the side.

    Victoria Bitter

    As the name suggests, this glass of beer might be a little bitter to those who tried it for the first time. To those who are familiar with the taste, they will know that it's incredibly rich and malty. It also has a hint of syrup which gives it that distinct sweet after-taste. Though, of course, the bitterness still prevails. On a side note, the bottle is also a little odd, similar to some of the root beer bottles you'll find at the imported aisle.

    Skol

    Light, fizzy and somewhat richer than most beers at this price-range, Skol has been the go to beer for most Chinese uncles in Malaysia to get drunk upon. After all, the taste is pretty accustomed towards that nature and it works great with fried snacks such as fried octopus, fried sausages or simply crackers in general. All and all, it's a pretty decent beer to drink and enjoy without a fuss.

    Hoegarden

    Everyone knows Hoegaarden even if you're not the type of person to drink as their marketing is incredibly clever. Apart from that, Hoegaarden has been the choice of many light drinkers or women that enjoys a sip or two. It is very fizzy and bubbly, which makes it incredibly refreshing and light. Flavourwise, it has a sense of fruitiness while the latest Rose variant permeates a perfume-like scent.

    Anchor

    Anchor, the one brand that many people associate sailing ships with due to the name, or at least for the non-drinkers. For those who aren't very picky about their taste profile, Anchor can be a great substitute to many beer as it still packs decent amount of flavour and richness within, without getting too complicated or connoisseur-like. It also has moderate fizziness which is enjoyable throughout your meal (or drinking session).

    Warsteiner

    Nice foam lacing, crispy, and light flavours make this an easy drink, even during the day. For those who prefer a thicker and heavier beer, this might not be your go-to. Nevertheless, light beers like Warsteiners are great for a quick thirst quencher and heat expulsion. You’re looking at mellow hops and malts, smooth, and clean runway down the throat.

    Stella Artois

    This beer pours with a light, golden hue with decent amount of carbonation and foam. It’s much sought after for this sweet and spicy flavours, but other than that - a rather fizzy and light beer. Only some slight malt and very small overtone of hop laces the palate with each sip, but often a great party pick and a meal sidekick.

    Budweiser

    Ah, the all-American beer that fills the cups in hands of partygoers and drinking sessions. The beer is very light and having said that, is best drank from the bottle. The flavours and aroma are faint on this one, but doesn’t deter the taste much; still making it a nice choice. It’s that kind of drink where you either like it or you don’t.

    Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc

    Kronenbourg 1664 is another subsidiary under the Carlsberg brewery family. However, despite the similar end-name, they actually taste very different. So different in fact that the Blanc variant of the Kronenbourg 1664 has a strong citrus taste. It is also a lot fizzier and lighter in flavour in comparison to most beer. Doesn't matter if you're a heavy drinker or a social drinker, you'll definitely enjoy the refreshing taste of Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc.

    Crown Lager

    Crown Lager may sound incredibly fancy, but this Australian beer has a pretty flat taste profile. it's not exactly well packed with flavour, nor is it extremely bland, but it has minimal excitement within the bottle. The fizziness of it is also at a bare minimum, which allows you to drink more than you should. Overall, Crown Lager isn't a bad beer, but it's one that is suitable for all occasion (and not getting drunk).
