    Several Types of Beers

    Ales
    Brewed with top fermenting yeast at cellar temperature, ales are fuller-bodied, with nuances of fruit or spice and a pleasantly hoppy finish. Generally robust and complex with a variety of fruit and malt aromas, ales come in many varieties. They could include Bitters, Milds, Abbey Ales, Pale Ales, Nut Browns, etc.

     

    Ales are often darker than lagers, ranging from rich gold to reddish amber. Top fermenting, and more hops in the wort gives these beers a distinctive fruitfulness, acidity and pleasantly bitter seasoning. Ales have a more assertive, individual personality than lager, though their alcoholic strength is the same.

    Ales are 30% of all beer sold in Canada.

    Lagers

    Lager originates from the German word lagern which means 'to store' – it refers to the method of storing it for several months in near-freezing temperatures. Crisp and refreshing with a smooth finish from longer aging, lagers are the world's most popular beer (this includes pilseners).

    A lager, which can range from sweet to bitter and pale to black, is usually used to describe bottom-fermented brews of Dutch, German, and Czech styles. Most, however, are a pale to medium colour, have high carbonation, and a medium to high hop flavour.

    Lagers are 56% of all beer sold in Canada.

    Stouts & Porters
    There's very little distinction between a Porter and a Stout, but they do have their differences.

    Porter is a dark, almost black, fruity-dry, top fermenting style. An ale, porter is brewed with a combination of roasted malt to impart flavour, colour and aroma. Stout is also a black, roast brew made by top fermentation.

    Stout, not as sweet to the taste, features a rich, creamy head and is flavoured and coloured by barley. Stouts often use a portion of unmalted roasted barley to develop a dark, slightly astringent, coffee-like character.

    Malts
    Generally dark and sweeter in flavour, malts contain hints of caramel, toffee, and nuts. They can be light to full bodied.

    Beer styles
    In addition to type, a beer's character can be described by its style. Listed below are some of the many different styles of beer carried at the Beer Store.

    Amber
    A very versatile beer, Amber beers are full bodied malt aromas with hints of caramel, these beers could be either lager or ale.

    Blonde
    Blonde ales are very pale in colour and tend to be clear, crisp, and dry, with low-to-medium bitterness and aroma from hops and some sweetness from malt.

    Brown

    Dark amber or brown in colour, brown ale have evidence of caramel and chocolate flavours and may have a slight citrus accent or be strong, malty or nutty, depending on the area of brewing.

    Cream
    A very mild, sweetish, golden style of ale.

    Dark
    Dark ale is a British type beer, combining hops, yeast and a blend of malts. It's a medium chestnut brown colour, with a delicate fruity smell and robust, malty character.

    Fruit

    Most fruit beers are ales however, they typically do not carry an ale character. In order to allow for the fruit flavor to come through nicely, the malt's flavor is not dominant and there is a low bitterness level to the beer.

    Golden
    First developed in the UK, Golden ales are straw coloured with a slight hint of citrus and vanilla. The beer can sometimes contain spicier flavours.

    Honey
    A full-bodied beer with a creamy texture and copper colour. Honey beers are slightly sweet with hints of caramel.

    India Pale Ale
    A hoppier version of pale ale. Originally brewed in England with extra hops to survive the journey to British troops stationed in India.

    Light
    Extremely light in colour and mild in flavour. Light beer has fewer calories and/or lower alcohol content.

    Lime

    Typically light in flavour with a refreshing lime taste. The intensity of the lime can differ from very subtle to strong.

    Pale

    Pale ale has a fruity, copper-coloured styler. It originiated from England. Pale ales are robust beers that can be enjoyed with strongly spiced foods.

    Pilsner
    Made with neutral and hard water. Tend to be golden in colour with a dry, crisp, and somewhat bitter flavour. Pilsner stands out from other lagers due to its more distinctive hop taste.

    Red

    Red ales can either be red or light brown in colour. They are moderate to heavy in flavour and contain hints of caramel that is offset by the predominant hop characteristic of the beer.

    Strong

    This is a broad grouping that can describe any beer over 7% ABV. Strong beers are typically dark in colour, some are almost black. Different styles can include old ales, double IPAs, and barleywines.

    Wheat

    Light and easy to drink with very little aftertaste. Wheat provides a soft character to beer and is sometimes hazy or cloudy with a touch of spice notes.

    BEER BENEFIT #1: PROTECT YOUR HEART.

     

    Wine usually gets all the credit as the booze that helps cut back your cardiovascular disease risk, but beer may be just as heart-healthy of a beverage.

    Italian researchers found that moderate beer drinkers had a 42 percent lower risk of heart disease compared to non-drinkers. For maximum protection, keep your consumption to one pint—at around 5 percent alcohol by volume—a day, the researchers say. Toast to your health with one of these summer brews.

     

    BEER BENEFIT #2: THINK LIKE A GENIUS.

    Knocking back a beer or two won't make you smarter, but it could boost your creativity, according to a study in the journal Consciousness and Cognition.

    When 40 men watched a movie while completing verbal puzzles, beer-buzzed guys with a blood alcohol content of .075 solved the problems a few seconds faster than their sober counterparts.

    BEER BENEFIT #3: PREVENT TYPE 2 DIABETES.

    Dutch researchers analyzed 38,000 male health professionals and found that when men who weren't big boozers began drinking moderately over 4 years, they were significantly less likely to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

    Increased alcohol consumption over time didn't lower the risk in men who already had a couple drinks a day, so moderation is the key word here.

    Stick to a beer or two at happy hour tonight.

    BEER BENEFIT #4: BE KIND TO YOUR KIDNEYS.

    Cheers to never having to pass a kidney stone again—or if you're lucky, ever. Researchers in Finland found that each bottle of beer a man drinks daily lowers his risk of developing kidney stones by 40 percent.

    The researchers can't exactly explain the link, but speculate that a high fluid intake not only makes for an excessive number of trips to the bathroom, but could also keep kidneys functioning properly. Additionally, the researchers say the hops in beer may be responsible for the correlation, helping to slow the release of calcium from bone—which could get reabsorbed by the kidneys as painful stones.

    BEER BENEFIT #5: RECOVER FASTER.

    Move over, Gatorade—a heady brew could also aid in workout recovery, according to a Spanish study. Researchers asked students to exercise until their body temperature reached 104 degrees, and then had them rehydrate with beer or water. As it turns out, people who had a post-workout pint were slightly more hydrated than those who had H2O.

    BEER BENEFIT #6: GET AN INSTANT CONFIDENCE BOOST.

    Beer goggles? Try beer mirror. British researchers found the more drinks people consumed, the more attractive they found themselves.

    In a second study, the researchers asked participants who had consumed either a real or fake alcoholic drink to give a speech. When asked to evaluate how good-looking, smart, and funny they felt they were during their talk, people who thought they imbibed gave themselves more positive self-evaluations—regardless of whether or not they were actually buzzed.

    BEER BENEFIT #7: SEE CLEARER.

    A Guinness a day could keep the eye doctor away. Canadian researchers found that one daily beer—especially a lager or stout—increases antioxidant activity that can stop cataracts from forming in the eyes.

    The kicker: The scientists found an opposite effect in participants who had three or more drinks a day. Here are six ways you can protect your eyesight today.

    BEER BENEFIT #8: LOWER YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE.

    High blood pressure can be responsible for a range of health problems, but beer can lower your risk for hypertension, research suggests.

    In one study, Harvard researchers found that moderate beer drinkers are less likely to develop high blood pressure than those who sip wine or cocktails.

    BEER BENEFIT #9: FIGHT OFF INFECTION.

    Having one or two drinks a day might boost your immune system and fight infections, according to an Oregon Health & Science University study.

    Scientists vaccinated monkeys against smallpox, then gave some of the primates access to alcohol while others could drink sugar water. The monkeys who drank moderately had better vaccine responses than those who consumed the sweet stuff.

    But the animals that drank heavily—you may now imagine a totally tanked chimp—had less of a response to the vaccine than those who kept their habit under control.

    BEER BENEFIT #10: PREVENT A FRACTURE.

    Nasty breaks from drunken debauchery aside, a couple beers a day could actually strengthen your bones, according to a study at Tufts University.

    Guys who stuck to one or two brews had up to 4.5 percent greater bone density than non-drinkers—but more than two beers was associated with up to 5.2 percent lower density, according to the study.
