Beer Type for Beer Batter?

zackly | Nov 9, 202007:15 AM     9

I made beer battered halibut over the weekend and it came out great. It was very crispy and simple to make which is my goal. I don't want to go through the trouble of whisking egg whites. I used equal parts all-purpose flour and rice flour, 3/4 teaspoon baking powder per cup of flours, salt and pepper and enough beer or seltzer to make a thin batter. I dredged the fish in the same two flours used to make the batter. I used Heineken as I had now darker beer in the house. I really couldn't taste much of a difference from seltzer. Should I use a real strong tasting beer like Guiness or some other type of beer? Thanks!
