Pale Lagers and Pilsners

Pale lager and pilsners are golden-colored beers that are lighter in flavor and lower in alcohol content. 

 

Dark Lagers

Dark lager is malty and smooth, with toasted caramel flavors. They have mid-range alcohol content and lower bitterness profiles.

 

German Bocks

Bocks are heavy on malty flavor, making them sweet and nutty. Bocks have lower alcohol levels, while doppelbocks, weizenbocks, and maibocks move up the alcohol scale.

 

Brown Ales

Brown ales feature malty overtones and tend to have toasty, caramel flavors. They typically feature mid-range alcohol content and hop bitterness.

 

Pale Ales

Pale ales are generally hoppy but lower in alcohol content than IPAs. They are typically light, drinkable beers.

 

India Pale Ales (IPAs)

IPAs boast strong hop bitterness with piney and floral flavors. They have high alcohol content.

 

Porters

Porters are all dark in color, and they feature flavors reminiscent of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. They have mid to high alcohol levels.

 

Stouts

Stouts are dark beers that are similar to porters, but with stronger roasted flavors. They have mid to high alcohol levels.

 

Belgian Styles

Belgian beers are known for their spiced, sweet, and fruity flavors and high alcohol content. They have high alcohol content and are low in bitterness.

 

Wheat Beers

As you might have guessed, wheat beers use wheat as their malt. They are generally lighter in color and alcohol content. Brewers often add seasonal fruits.

 

Wild & Sour Ales

Wild or sour ales are typically very low in alcohol, and feature tart, sour flavors that come from bacteria in the brew mash.
