The reason Brits drink warm beer is that you can actually TASTE the stuff. Most american beer is served chilled, so it anaesthetises the mouth so you can't taste the (lack of) flavour.

Beer in Spain

As to keg beer, in most of Andalucía they tend to serve a disgusting yellowish stuff, beware; but in the center (esp. Madrid) you will see in most bars a lot of glasses filled with the most delicious golden liquid. It tastes even better than it looks.
In short, I hope that if our editor ever comes here (or has already) he will get a fair sampling of our goods, so that we get a fair place in the competition.

Fortunately, there are a large number of Micro Breweries here in the US that DO know what real Beer/Ale/Bitter/Porter/etc... are.
Determining what country produces the best beer is not only very subjective, but such an ongoing process, that the final answer may never be known! ;^)
