  Ale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ales are brewed with top-fermenting yeasts at temperatures from 15 to 25 °C (59 to 77 °F).
Ales are also usually served at a higher temperature than lagers: in the UK typically around 12 °C (54 °F) for an ale as compared to 8 °C (46 °F) for a lager.
Ales are very common in Britain, Germany, the United States, and Belgium; however, Lager is the dominant style of beer in almost all countries, worldwide.
