FF- Beer with or without a ‘head’
Every other Friday I tell you one of my ‘Fuck-ups’. Hopefully, this saves you from some super awkward and embarrassing moments.
I think this is always a topic at which a lot of people have a different view. The beer with or without a 'head'. Some people say (mainly Brits), that without the head you have more beer (fair point !).
So I started Googling, why do the Dutch like a 'head' on their beer. Apparently, it helps to keep the aroma in the glass. The ‘head’ is kind of an isolation-material because beer start oxidating when it gets in touch with air. If that happens you lose the taste, besides that it keeps the beer carbonated.
Okay, let’s say that one is covered. Then, what about the size of the beer? My British expat boyfriend calls the Dutch beers ‘baby’ beers. SO, when I ask him how much he drank he says 2 beers (but I now know that is actually 4 since he counts British size beers).
Personally, I don’t mind them being small. Keeps the beer cold (okay, okay - or I should drink faster!)
So, Dutch beers or not?
