If you were to choose a beer style that is most associated with your nation, be it historically or otherwise?

This could be a complex question, as an American my nation has always been associated with tasteless pilsners, like Miller or Budweiser, but we also are the birthplace of super-hopped west coast IPAs, as well as some historical rich amber ales. Maybe if you are Irish you may say Irish stouts are your calling card, or English, you may claim an ESB.

Whats your beer?

I was born in Hong Kong = San Miguel









(and yes, I know San Miguel is filipino, but was huge in HK before Carlsberg took over)

As a proud member of the HBT Nation, I choose homebrew. Often over hopped, sometimes oaked or soured, might have a high OG or be as subtle and delicate as a flower. Always distinctive. Sometimes disappointing but always full of love and brewer intent.

Do you mean how it differs compared to Brown or Robust Porter?
