KNOW YOUR BEER!
Amber lagers are a somewhat defined style of lager that is much favored by US lager brewers. This type of beer is darker anywhere from amber to copper hued. It is generally a more full flavored beer than the usual pale lager. Alcohol levels are usually a maximum of 5% ABV.
American Steam Beer
Steam beer is usually considered an exclusive to the Anchor Brewing Company of San Francisco. This beer is considerably notoriety. It is a certain style of beer that is brewed at Ale-type temperatures. The result is a light lager type of beer.
Similar to American/ Canadian pilsner. This type of beer is made with Australian hops and malts. It is a misnomer that their content is higher. The can is just bigger.
This beer was first brewed in Thuringia, which is a state in eastern Germany. These style of lager brews were known to be quite darker in color than their Munich counterparts. These are relatively full-bodied beers and are rarely under 5%ABV,. They classically feature a bitter chocolate, roasted malt note along with a rounded character. This obscure style of beer was picked up by Japanese brewers. It was made in small quantities by major brewers in Japan. Schwarz beers are not often picked up by US craft brewers.
Duck or venison meals would be a good choice to serve with Bock.. This beer is a specific type of strong lager. It is associated with Germany. Their colors range form pale to deep amber tones and have a sweetness to them on the palate. Bock beer styles are an exposition of malty sweetness which is classically associated with the flavor of Bavarian malt. Alcohol levels are potent and are typically 5-6% ABV/. Dopple Bock is a much stronger version of Bock.
This is a sub-category of bock style beer. Doppelbocks are an extra strong beer. They are rich and quite weighty lagers that are characterized by an intense malty sweetness along with a note of hop bitterness in order to balance the sweetness. Color may be either full amber or a dark brown. The alcohol levels are potently high usually at 7-8%ABV. These beers were first brewed by the Paulaner monks in Munich. At the time, it was to be consumed as what they called "liquid bread" during the Lenten season.
These beers are very Well balanced and are smooth, and refreshing, Dortmunders tend to be much stronger and fuller bodied than other pale lagers or even Munich Helles styles. They may evem be a darker shad and a bit hoppier. This style of beer began in the city of Dortmund which is in northern Germany. Dortmunder Export started during the industrial revolution at which time Dortmund was the center of the coal and steel industries.
Eisbock is the strongest type of bock. It is made by chilling a doppelbock until ice begins to form. Once the ice is removed, it leaves behind a brew with a much higher concentration of alcohol. This also concentrates the flavors. As a result, the beer is rich with a pronounced malt sweetness along with a warm alcoholic finish. Alcohol levels are at least 8%abv.
"Light" and Reduced Calorie Lagers.
These are popular brews for a figure-conscious society. They are usually pale lager styled beers that contain fewer calories. As most
"diet products," the goal is to maintain flavor while lowering calories. This goal has been achieved quite successfully by some brands.
Maibocks are medium beers. They are full-bodied lagers. Their color can vary from a light bronze to a deep amber color. They are characterized by a sweet malty taste and have a subtle hop character.
Munich helles is a style of lager originating from Munich which is very soft and round on the palate with a pale to golden hue. These beers traditionally tend to be quite malt accented with subtle hop character. They are generally weightier than standard pale lagers though less substantial than Dortmunder Export styles. All the finest examples still come from the brewing center of Munich and are relatively easy to find in major US markets.
This category is BATF-mandated in as much as any lager stronger than 5% alcohol by volume cannot call itself a lager beer. There are a number of commercial brands that have been created to fill this category, many of which do not have great merit from the connoisseurs perspective. Some strong European lagers adopt this labeling moniker for the US market.
Pale lagers are the standard international beer style as personified by products from Miller to Heineken. This style is the generic spin-off of the pilsner style. Pale lagers are generally light to medium-bodied with a light to medium hop impression and a clean, crisp malt character. Quality, from a flavor point of view, is very variable within this style and many cheaper examples use a proportion of non-malt additives such as rice or corn to reduce the production costs. Alcohol content is typically between 3.5-5% ABV, with the upper end of the range being preferable if one is to get a true lager mouthfeel.
You like fried foods? The bitterness cuts the spices so the flavor mellows out, leaving you with a balanced taste.
Pilsner styles of beer originate from Bohemia in the Czech Republic. They are medium to medium-full bodied and are characterized by high carbonation and tangy czech varieties of hops that impart floral aromas and a crisp, bitter finish. The hallmark of a fresh pilsner is the dense, white head. The alcohol levels must be such as to give a rounded mouthfeel, typically around 5% ABV. Classic pilsners are thoroughly refreshing, but they are delicate and must be fresh to show their best. Few beers are as disappointing to the beer lover as a stale pilsner. German pilsner styles are similar, though often slightly lighter in body and color. Great pilsners are technically difficult to make and relatively expensive to produce.
Vienna Style Lagers and Marzen/Fest Beers
The classic amber to red lager which was originally brewed in Austria in the 19th century has come to be known as the Vienna style. These are reddish-amber with a very malty toasted character and a hint of sweetness. This style of beer was adapted by the Munich brewers and in their hands has a noted malty sweetness and toasted flavor with a touch more richness. The use of the term Marzen, which is German for March, implies that the beer was brewed in March and lagered for many months. On a label, the words "fest marzen" or "Oktoberfest" generally imply the vienna style. Oktoberfest beers have become popular as September seasonal brews among US craft brewers, though they are not always classic examples of the German or Austrian style.
India Pale Ale, IPA
The IPA is a hoppier version of Pale Ale. Originally brewed in England with extra hops to survive the journey to British troops stationed in India. In the early 1700s Britian had a problem. Troops and British citizens living in India as part of the colonial rule did not have access to good British Ale and any attempts to ship the malt British ales to them resulted in spoilage. India Pale Ale, or IPA, was the solution. The generous amounts of hops in this brew protected it from the heat and motion of the British sailing ships of the day. In 1827 a ship leaving London wrecked and damaged some of the casks of IPA on board. The casks were sold there in England and the unusually hoppy ale was a big hit. Soon the new brew was in demand and a new style.
Like many beer styles, pale ale resulted from an innovation in brewing technology. The brewers in Burton-on-Trent in England were looking for a way to produce a more consistent and paler beer. The kilns of the day used wood which was difficult to control and often resulted in dark roasted or even scorched barley. They found that coke, a processed form of coal that burns hot and steady, gave them the desired effect- a clear, amber or copper colored ale. It was far paler than any British ales brewed to date.
The type of water used seems to be more sacred to this style than anything else. Brewers all over the world that make this style often work hard to reproduce the naturally occurring water of the original brewery in Burton. They will use hops and yeast that are completely different from those used in traditional English ales.
The traditional British pale ale style, which includes bitter and ESB, is a very pleasant and understated beer. It has a malty profile and just enough woody or lightly floral hops for balancing. It is elegant and a great session beer. The American and Australia version of this very mutable style are brasher. The maltiness is often dialed down and more aggressive hops varieties are used making it an exciting and spicy brew.
Dry Stout, Irish Stout or Dry Irish Stout
This is the style that represents a typical stout in most people's minds. It sits in the glass completely black with a thick, creamy, long lasting head atop it. It smells of dark, roasted things like coffee, barley and chocolate. The flavor is rich and dry with perhaps a bit of acidity shining through. Some examples of dry Stouts are Guiness Draught Stout, Murphy's Irish Stout, and Beamish Irish Stout.
The Porter was once the most popular beer in England and America. It's position was supplanted by pale which was in turn undone by Pilsner. But unlike pale ale which has always continued to sell well, porter all but died out on both sides of the pond. In the US Prohibition was the final nail in the coffin of the declining style. Britain saw it fail in part because of a beer tax based on OG. The craft beer revolution finally revived it at the end of 20th century.
Porters always pair with almost any meat dish.
Wheat beer is brewed with a large proportion of wheat. Wheat beers often also contain a significant proportion of malted barley. Wheat beers are usually top-formented.The flavors of Wheat beers varies considerably, depending upon the specific style the main varieties are weissbier, witbier, and the sour varieties, such as lambic.

Spices, fruit and other flavorings may be added to beer in ways only limited by a brewerâ€™s imagination. Chili beers provide a kick, while cinnamon, orange peel and cloves can be warming in the cold winter months. Even exotic spices such as cardamom, star anise and grains of paradise are not that uncommon in beer. Raspberries, cherries, peaches, apricots and currants are among many fruits traditionally used in Belgian lambics. And pumpkin has become an autumn favorite of American brewer
Water is a very substantial ingredient of beer, composing of 90-95 percent of beer by mass. The taste and chemistry of water is a big factor of what caused different styles of beer to be created in different regions. The hard, mineral-laden water of Burton, England contributes greatly to the distinctive taste of Bass (a British Pale Ale), while the softer water of the Czech Republic is what makes authentic Pilsner taste so clean and pure. Through filtering and/or additives, brewers today can change the chemistry of their water to meet the needs of the specific style they wish to brew.
Malted Barley is barley that has been allowed to germinate (sprout) to a certain point, and is then dried. The barley is slowly dried in a kiln at temperatures gradually rising to 122 F for lighter malts and 220 F for darker malts. This kiln drying takes about 30 hours. The degree of drying or toasting in a kiln brings various flavors to the beer. A medium roasted malt will have caramel flavors, while a dark roasted malt will have chocolate or coffee flavors. Other grains such as wheat and rye can also be used instead of or in combination with barley to create specific styles of beer.
Yeast are tiny one-celled organisms that turn sugar from the malted barley into alcohol and carbon dioxide in a process called fermentation. In other words, yeast are what makes beer a bubbly, alcoholic beverage. Yeast also greatly contributes to the flavor of the beer, and specific yeast are used for specific styles. The top-fermenting yeast are used for making ales and stouts, and can lend fruit, butterscotch and buttery flavors. Yeast in German wheat beers provide clove and banana flavors, while yeast in farmhouse-style beers lend flavors of earth, cheese, hay and horse-blanket.
