Topic: Beer style


  
  Beer style - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Beer style is a term used to differentiate and categorise beers by various factors such as colour, strength, ingredients, production method or origin.
Beers below 4% are common in North European countries where beer is consumed in large quantities, and such beers may be referred to as session beers or, in the UK, as a session bitter.
Pale beers may be flavoured with lemonade or other soft drink to create a shandy, also known as panaché or radler, which would typically be under 2.8% for lower tax reasons or on the 0.5% borderline to be classed as both a beer and yet taxed and sold as a soft drink.
