Beer is one of the most widely and oldest consumed alcoholic drinks in the world, the basic ingredients of beer are water; a starch source, such as malted barley, able to be saccharified (converted to sugars) then fermented (converted into carbon dioxide and ethanol); a flavoring such as hops; and a brewer's yeast to produce the fermentation. During the brewing process, fermentation of the starch sugars in the wort produces carbonation and ethanol in the resulting beer. Most modern beer is brewed with hops, which act as a natural preservative and stabilizing agent and add bitterness and other flavors. Other flavoring agents such as fruits, herbs, or gruit may be included or used instead of hops. In commercial brewing, the natural carbonation effect is often replaced with forced carbonation and removed during processing.
Beer contains ethanol, which is an alcohol, and has short and long-term effects on the user when consumed. Different concentrations of alcohol have different effects on the human body. When drinking beer, there are many factors should be considered. Principal among them is bitterness, the variety of flavors present in the beverage, along with their alcohol content, intensity, and color. A more uniform and objective determination to be made on the overall qualities of any beer standards for those characteristics allow.
