Stylin' Brews: Hefeweizen

Stylin' Brews: Hefeweizen

October 24, 2018

The Profile

Hefeweizen is a straw coloured, usually hazy beer which is very attractive when served in the traditional Bavarian hefeweizen glass in the summer sunshine. Hefeweizens are made with at least 50% wheat in the mash and are not found to be brimming with hops, the flavours mainly come from the yeast instead. You see “Weizen” means wheat (you might remember that from our Dunkelweizen article) and “hefe” means yeast. These, as said, are the main two flavour components of a hefeweizen and the yeast used adds distinct clove and banana notes. Making these beers the perfect, easy drinking beverage in the sunshine.

Stylin' Brews: Red Ale

Stylin' Brews: Red Ale

September 26, 2018

The Profile

A red ale is a form of pale ale that is categorised by its colour. There’s still debate around the fact of whether or not a red ale is really its own class of ale or whether or not it falls under the umbrella of English bitter. A red ale is categorised by a slight sweetness and tea-like flavours. It has a light hop and toasted malt flavours, making it a well-balanced beer. It is made with a high proportion of pale malts and often contains caramel colouring to give it its signature red hue. It is often that red ales will have a dry finish. These beers are very easy drinking, as our very own Tim Martin will tell you from personal experience!

Stylin' Brews: Pilsner

Stylin' Brews: Pilsner

August 29, 2018

The Profile

Pilsner is a pale lager and a famous style of beer that has been replicated the world over, although often not to great effect. A true pilsner, from the Czech Republic or Germany, has a medium to full body, is a light golden yellow in colour, has high carbonation and floral hops which give the beer a crisp yet bitter finish. It is most important for a pilsner to be refreshing yet delicate. It should also have a dense fluffy head.

One of the most important aspects of a true pilsner is the soft water used to make it. This is one of the reasons why pilsner still has such a strong link with its hometown of Pilsen; because it’s very hard to recreate the quality of the water found there.

Stylin' Brews: American Pale Ale

Stylin' Brews: American Pale Ale

April 11, 2018

Unlike the Australian pale ale we discussed a few weeks ago the American pale ale has worked well to define itself and, in true American style, it is bold, boisterous and much shoutier than pales ales from elsewhere in the world. American pale ales are typically brewed with cleaner yeast and American hops, and it is these hops which really distinguish the American pale ales from their British and European counterparts.

Stylin' Brews: Oatmeal Stout

Stylin' Brews: Oatmeal Stout

February 14, 2018

This is the first episode in a series that we’re going to be running over the course of the next few months, and each instalment is going to take a closer look at a certain style of beer and find out what makes it unique. We’re also going to look into the history of each style as well, because many beers have a quirky or unique history that's very interesting; to beer nerds like us at least. After all, beer is around 9000 years old! There has gotta be some good stories hidden in there somewhere! Without further ado lets get into it.
