Porter

A dark, almost black, fruity-dry, top fermenting style ale that is brewed with a combination of roasted malt to impart flavour, colour and aroma. For sheer versatility, porters are hard to beat, offering sturdiness on the one hand, drinkablility on the other. They can be the epitome of balance, or a dark, bitter beer for hop lovers.

Stout

Not as sweet to the taste, features a rich, creamy head and is flavoured and coloured by barley. Stouts often use a portion of unmalted roasted barley to develop a dark, slightly astringent, coffee-like character. Many great stouts are complex and low in alcohol, with beautiful roundness and a touch of roastiness. The dry versions are appetizing and quenching; the sweeter styles are silky and well rounded, perfect for an evening of food and drink.

Lager / Pilsner

Crisp and refreshing with a smooth finish from longer aging, lagers are the world's most popular beer. A lager, which can range from sweet to bitter and pale to black, is usually used to describe bottom-fermented brews of Dutch, German, and Czech styles. Most, however, are a pale to medium colour, have high carbonation, and a medium to high hop flavour.

Sour / Saison

Sours are tart-tasting, made with wild bacteria and yeast, and come in a wide range of styles and can run the gamut from mouth-puckeringly sour to barnyard funky to fruity and light. Saison is a pale ale that is highly carbonated, fruity, spicy, and falls under the farmhouse ale designation, which has a bit of a funky flavor, kind of like wet hay or earth.
