Beer Connoisseur Online answers this pretty thoroughly in an article. The TLDR: is that "...originally a stout was a strong version of a porter. Today, the difference is whatever you want it to be." For an interesting history on the term Stout and the style of beer, you can check out this history of stout article provided by Eric Deloak. Similarly you ...

Snake Venom is beer not a spirit because spirits are distilled. Beer is technically not distilled. As the definition you cited says, beer is the product of fermenting sugar derived from cereal grain which is dissolved in water. So water + grain + yeast = beer. The grain has to undergo a saccharification process where the carbohydrate chains (starches) in ...

It's often a misconception that one comes forth from the other, this is incorrect. The name was used to indicate the strength of the Westmalle beers. Originally there was the Enkel, Dubbel and Tripel. It is said that they represent the holy trinity. Later quadruppels were added. Both Dubbel and Tripel as name were first used by the Trappist brewery of ...

WHITE IPA A basic definition would be: strong hop character - similar to ipa wheat / wit grainbill- essentially a mashup (beer pun) of wit and ipa, lighter malts with strong hops As far as the is it an IPA question: as long as its fairly high alcohol, most of the ingredients would point to being almost the same as an IPA. but like noted above, there are ...

The BJCP classifies Corona Extra as a Premium American Lager, being, clear, yellow, not hoppy but with a little more body than a light. Assuming 'dry' isn't some radically different beer, the category would probably still be correct. BJCP draft guidelines (not official) consider putting Asahi Super Dry and Corona Extra in 2A 'International Pale Lagers' ...

There are a number of different types of porters and stouts, so it isn't necessarily a simple answer, but I would say the use of roasted grains in stouts, particularly roasted barley, is the biggest difference. As such, you end up with more burnt toast and coffee type flavors in a stout, but the amount and type of roastiness depends upon the type of stout. ...

Some key attributes that make a beer a beer: the primary process to make it typically involves brewing, i.e. steeping something in water. For beer it's cereals or grains to extract something, that something is usually mainly carbohydrates, but also color, flavor and aroma. fermentation is used to convert the brew liquor (wort) into beer. There are ...

Beers (ales and lagers) are broken down into many, many different styles based on how they are brewed. Most beers have only 3 or 4 different types of ingredients. Malt, water, yeast, hops and sometimes fruit or herbs. While there doesn't seem like there can be a lot of variation, there are almost an infinite amount of ways to combine these ingredients. For ...

Yes, I think this is a pretty unnecessary (and non-descriptive) label to put on a category of alcohol. If I go to a liquor store looking for cider or for a dry stout or for anything else and I see a section labeled "women" that effectively tells me absolutely nothing about what it is I'll find over there. Not to mention it basically assumes a woman will have ...

Dubbels and Tripels are vastly different beers. While dubbels are generally something akin to a brown ale, malt forward with some light hints of dark fruit and roastiness, Tripels are pale to golden, being a vehicle for both the yeast flavors (clove/bananna), fruity esters, and the whims of the brewer (Belgian candi sugar, coriander and other spices are ...

Beeradvocate.com Beer Expert - from "Rate Beer" data Both of these are the largest rating/tasting databases for beer, I haven't used them but they would be the place to look for the information that untapped is lacking.

Well, that style thing is complicated because in real world people just make beer, and don't make beer to satisfy styles guides (at least, not until very recentely when some people started to care more about style guidelines than the beer itself). Anyway, what I think is important to be aware is: Many styles have a long and old history, often centuries, ...

Piwo Jasne is, translated, "light beer". It's the common market name for all 'light' beers, and they are mostly pilsners. Piwo Ciemne - this is "dark beer", so something like ale. They are dark, as the name suggests, and usually quite sweet. Piwo Mocne - this is simply the beer that is more condensed, so it has more alcohol. That can be light beers or ...

In my (somewhat minimal) experience, Piwo Jasne and Piwo Mocne are both most commonly pilsners or perhaps more generally pale lagers. Piwo Mocne is higher in alcohol content and might be called a "strong pale lager", or perhaps tagged with the modifier "Imperial" to indicate the increased alcohol. That said, I don't think there is anything inherent in the ...

In terms of an Android app, I personally use Beer Citizen. It does not have every beer imaginable in its listing, but it has quite a large amount. I find the community to be pretty helpful. They helped me find a lot of different beers whenever and wherever I might travel. Jeff Wurz is also right to suggest Beer Advocate, which recently came out with a new ...

YES. Deschutes Chainbreaker White IPA is in fact made with ale yeast using pilsner, malted wheat, wheat, and a large quantity of hops. A pale ale is an ale (a beer made with ale yeast) and lightly malted barley and adjuncts. An IPA is a pale ale that has been hopped greatly. Your particular white IPA is light in color and has 55 IBUs, qualifying it for the ...

Why would you have a “selection of beer for women”? this is a marketing strategy that aims both women and men. women like to be treated differently, as a consumer with special needs and expectations. men looking for a gift to a woman will most likely be attracted by this selection. From Bridget Brennan, a contributor to Forbes, and head of Female Factor: ...

Actually you have nice words to ask in Spain for a shooter beer, but I can add somes: big quantity (1L or more) mini cachi regular size (200cl-500cl) tubo little quantities: cañita corto chato (used for beer but usually of wine) zurito (basque country and andalucia but extendind all over Spain) but we have also words to name beer bottles depending ...

Given how much modern Polish beer has in common with mass-market German and Czech beer- combined with a small handful that I've tried here in Germany- they're what one would call "European pale lagers" or "International pilsners," depending on what book or site's style names you're going off of. In response to a previous answer, color has nothing to do with ...

BJCP style guides aside, I generally love porters and don't care for stouts. The latter (in my experience) tend to have a much more pronounced roasted malt character. (I do like most milk stouts though, now that that's a thing)
