Beer, with its rich history and diverse flavors, has become more than just a drink; It is a symbol of social encounters and moments shared with friends and family. Beer always creates a good atmosphere that encourages conversation and dialogue, it is a drink that transcends cultures and borders.
From light, refreshing beers like pilsners and lagers to dark, complex beers like stouts and abbey beers, each style brings a unique palette of flavors, aromas, and nuances. The creativity of the brewers led to the inclusion of unusual ingredients, such as exotic fruits or vegetables and spices. But there are always preferences when buying a beer.
We can choose a beer based on several criteria: taste, aroma, the amount of alcohol it contains or personal taste. But we can also allow ourselves to be guided by others, and the Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) has prepared a ranking of the best beers in the supermarket.
Among the beers analyzed by OCU we found Cruzcampo Pilse, which has a price of 0.72 euros and scored 60 points. It is followed by a can of Heineken, with a price of 0.76 euros and a score of 67. These are the beers that received the lowest score, along with Steinburg (Mercadona), Alhambra beer, and Dutch Saerbrau (Carrefour) .
On the other hand, there are beers that OCU considers to be of the best quality in the entire market. For example, the can of Xibeca is the one that gets the most points, with a total of 80. The cheapest is Karlsquell, which costs about 0.29 euros at Aldi.
But the ‘jewel in the crown’ goes to Eroski’s Aurum beer, which is priced at 0.30 euros and received a score of 70 in OCU. In other words, the best beer in relation to quality and price, because it is not the cheapest or the most marked, but it achieves a good average between the two values.
