How to Make Beer Not Taste Bitter

Save

If a swallow of beer causes a grimace on your face, then implement a remedy to minimize its bitter taste. If you're a purist and you like to drink beer straight, make sure to chill it properly before taking the first swig. This can help reduce the unpleasant taste from a warm beverage. Otherwise, you can add something to it or mix it with something to make it more palatable.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 can of clear carbonated beverage
  • Lemonade
  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • Knife

Make a Shandy

  • Fill a chilled glass halfway with a clear, carbonated soda such as one flavored with lemon-lime or ginger ale. Or substitute lemonade.

  • Pour your favorite beer into the glass on top of the carbonated beverage.

  • Add ice if desired. Enjoy.

Lemon or Lime

  • Cut up limes or lemons into wedges for easy squeezing.

  • Squeeze juice from a fresh lemon or lime wedge into the bottle or mug of beer.

  • Hold the bottle or mug over a sink and add a few shakes of salt if you prefer a salty flavor.

Tips & Warnings

  • Darker, European-style beers will often taste less bitter than their lighter ale counterparts.
