Here are 5 Types of Beer You Need to Know
Beer is an alcoholic drink produced through a fermentation process without going through a distillation process. Beer is the third most popular drink after tea and coffee. Believe it or not, beer began to be made as early as 5000 BC during the times of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. Many people only know two types of beer, namely dark beer and golden yellow beer. But did you know that there are several types of beer, if you look at the manufacturing process and the ingredients used. For those of you who like drinking beer, you should know the eight types of beer below according to www.ajsmuskego.com:
This type of beer is fermented with yeast that is at the bottom, aka not floating. Lager must be made at a low temperature because this beer requires a fairly long fermentation process compared to other beers, namely around several weeks to several months. The taste is a little tart but not too bitter. Lager is generally golden in color, but in European areas lager is darker in color.
This beer is made from malted barley juice which goes through a fermentation process at quite high temperatures. Ale was very popular in the 80s and was loved by many women. It tastes slightly sweet with a very strong fruit aroma. Ale has a slightly darker color compared to lager.
Pilsner is a beer made from barley or malt soaked in water mixed with yeast. The fermentation process must be at a fairly high temperature. Pilsner was first made in Plzen, Czech Republic in 1842. Pilsner has a pale yellow color with a slightly bitter taste.
Stout has the nickname black beer because of its dark black color. Due to its black color, this beer has a fairly bitter taste compared to other types of beer, so it is more popular with men. Stout was first made in England using malted barley that was roasted until cooked.
Cider is very famous for its sweet apple aroma and taste. Cider is made from apple juice fermented with yeast at low temperatures for several days. Cider usually has a very low alcohol content, namely around 6-8%. Apart from drinking it just like that, cider is also widely used for cooking.
