Good to Know: Different Beer Types
There is no such thing as perfect. Sure, some things do come close to it, like women, music, or a piece of classical art. As the engineering philosophy goes - there is no such thing as “complete,” some works are only finished for a while.
Beer is unquestionably the most popular drink in the whole world - apart from water, that is. Born in ancient Egypt to keep slaves on their feet, perfected through history, every culture took and gave something, making it better and better every time.
The easiest way to aggregate beer is - surprisingly - by color, as everyone can tell the difference between dark and pale ales. But that’s only the top of the iceberg, the story is not that simple:
Ales are usually more complex and more aromatic than lagers. They differ in colors, spices, aromas - each of them appeal to different tastes. They range from browns to wheat bears. This group includes the charismatic English porters, the well known Guinness as the most popular stout, Belgian beers, and sours (the name speaks for itself).
Lagers are bit different. They are lighter, with more crisp, and like revenge, they are best served cold. The most known is dark lager which - contradicting the beliefs- is quite light. Pale lagers are rightfully the most known worldwide, with its distinguishing taste. The most flavorful and characteristic are the “bock”s, with colors ranging from the brown of autumn to the black of the night.
