Pale ales are best suited for a traditional burger with a higher fat content. The bitterness of the hops and high carbonation cut through the fat and cleanse the palette, especially if you are topping your burger with sharp cheese or bacon.
Burgers are full of flavour and rich with juices. Finding the best type of beer to pair with a burger can be tricky. A beer that is too heavy will be overpowering while a beer that is too light can get lost in the flavours.
