Why is "The beer is great..." not accepted?

"Beer is great in Belgium" suggests that all beer is great in Belgium, whereas the same beer is not great outside of Belgium, i.e. go to Belgium and drink any old beer.

"The beer is great in Belgium" implies that it's particularly Belgian beer that's great, i.e. go to Belgium and drink the local beer.

Why would 'amazing' be rejected?

Probably it hasn't been added to the answer bank. If you think its use is widespread, use the little flag to report it.

It's Belgian beer that's great. So it has to be the beer in Belgium that is great. We really do wish you would use native English speakers
