1.Czech Republic Beer Styles
Pilsner, one of the world’s first golden lagers, was first produced in the region still known as Bohemia, in the town of Pilsen in former Czechoslovakia. Sometimes the designation is spelled "Pilsener," or it may be abbreviated to "Pils." Pilsner is a golden-colored beer that has good malt and hop character, with a strong, clean, assertive flavor. Hop bouquet is impressive, with floweriness of aroma and dryness of finish. Bohemian Pilsner is malty and well-hopped, with a smooth finish. A caramel taste is often observed, and a hint of diacetyl adds the impression of complexity and sweetness. Light- to medium-bodied Bohemian-style Pilsner really makes its impression with the bitterness, flavor, and aromatic character of the spicy Czech Saaz hop.
2.French Beer Styles
Bière de Garde
Although France is not known for its beer, the northeastern district of French Flanders nevertheless possesses strong brewing traditions, which it shares with its Flemish cousins across the border. Traditionally, bière de garde was made from February through March and was consumed in the summer. A malt accent and ale-like fruitiness characterize bière de garde, and it has an earthy taste ranging in color from deep blond to reddish-brown. Bière de garde may have caramel flavors from a long boil. Bière de garde often appears in champagne bottles.
3.Irish Beer Styles
Irish ales, a minor category, range in color from light red-amber to light brown. These ales have a pleasant toasted malt character and a candy-like caramel sweetness. These ales are lightly hopped with low levels of fruity-ester and aroma. Diacetyl should be absent. Irish ales are similar to Scottish ales but are a bit lighter and paler.
Irish ales, a minor category, are malt-accented, often with a buttery note (diacetyl), and are rounded, with a soft but notable fruitiness. Irish ales are similar to Scottish ales but are a bit lighter and paler. Hop bitterness is usually low.
Ireland is one of the first countries to brew stout; there it is considered a national beverage. Ireland’s dry stouts are markedly aromatic, with rich maltiness and intense hop flavors. Hop bitterness is medium to high. The beer is extra-dark, black opaque ale, with low to medium body and a creamy brown head. The degree of sweetness and dryness will vary in dry stouts, yet they are all top-fermented and have the unique and special character of roasted barley, which produces a slightly roasted (coffee-like) trait.
4.Scottish Beer Styles
If England is famed for the bitter hops flavor of its "bitters," Scotland is famed for its full-bodied, malty ales. Scotch ales are sweet and very full-bodied, with malt and roast malt flavors predominating. They are deep burnished-copper to brown in color. Scottish ales are invariably rich and mouth filling because they are quite high in unfermentables. They have a maltier flavor and aroma, darker colors, and a more full-bodied and smokier character than British ales. Bitterness and hoppiness are not dominant factors in Scottish ales, and they are less hoppy than their British counterparts. They are similar to British bitters, but are less estery and are generally darker, sweeter, and maltier. Some Scottish heavy ales exhibit a peat or smoke character present at low to medium levels.
Scottish ales are often known by names simply as, e.g., "Scottish Light 60/" (''/'' means shillings), "Heavy 70/," and "Export 80/." The strong Scotch ales are designated with higher values, ranging from 90/- to 160/-. The significant differences are reflected in their maltier flavor, relatively darker colors, and occasional faint smoky character. The "shilling" designation is believed to be from the old method of taxing in which the tax rate was based on the gravity of the beer.
