BEER STYLES

PALE LAGER

A very pale to golden-colored lager with a well-attenuated body and noble hop bitterness. Developed in the mid 19th century by combining ale brewing techniques with lagering methods.

COLOR SCALE

VIENNA/AMBER LAGER

Developed in Vienna and later imported to Mexico, amber lager is a reddish-brown or copper-colored beer with medium body and slight malt sweetness.

COLOR SCALE

MUNICH DUNKEL LAGER

Smooth, rich, and complex without being heavy, Munich Dunkels boast brilliant ruby hues from large amounts of Munich malts, creating a fuller-bodied beer. Moderate bitterness balances out any sweetness.

COLOR SCALE

PILSNER

First produced in the Czech city of Plzen (Pilsen), the pilsner style was the combination of brighter malt prepared by English technology, Pilsen’s remarkably soft water, local Saaz noble hops, and Bavarian-style lagering; which produced a clear, golden beer that was regarded as a sensation. The pilsnering method quickly spread to Germany and later the United States.
