There's really only two styles of beers in this world - Ales and Lagers. Conveniently, we've classified all our beer ratings into one or the other.
Ales refer to any beer brewed with top-fermenting ale yeast. Ales are brewed and served at higher temperatures than lagers. They tend to be sweet and strong and can have higher alcohol contents than lagers.
Lagers refer to any beer brewed with bottom-fermenting lager yeast. Lagers are brewed and served at cooler temperatures than ales. They tend to be light and smooth and represent the vast majority of beers produced.
