We touched on some styles in this unit (we'll get more in depth in later units) but try to identify the style based on the clues below:
16.) Ranking among the world’s strongest beers this rich lager used to sustain German monks during Lenten fasts. They're generally slightly sweet with just enough hops to strike a balance, warming all the way down. ______________________________________
17.) First brewed in 1800's San Francisco using lager yeasts fermented at a higher temperature. The result is a beer with fruity characteristics and an assertive hop bitterness. _______________________________________
18.) Dating back to 18th century London this beer is the predecessor to all stouts. Noted for its restrained roasted character and bitterness, it leans to the sweet side, with a significant caramel or toffee character and malty complexity. ________________________________________
19.) Literally “white beer”, this Belgian wheat ale got its name because of its cloudy haze. A smooth mouthfeel and grainy malts meet a dry and spicy Belgian yeast character with notes of coriander and orange. ________________________________________
20.) One of the most celebrated Belgian Trappist style ales, this beer generally displays a gleaming russet colour and has a complex flavour and aroma: spice, florals, dried fruits and plums. Moderately sweet and medium-full bodied and a dry finish. ________________________________________

We have some important and exciting news from our Managing Director, Matt Lane:
Over the last few months, we’ve spent a lot of time speaking to members of our PerfectDraft community about loyalty & rewards.
Something we’re really passionate about is rewarding our most loyal customers and you’ve given us some great feedback and ideas on how we can do this.
We’re now excited to announce the launch of our ‘Spring Rewards’ program.
During pregnancy, it is recommended to a pregnant woman not to eat any raw or semi-cooked food such as meat, fish, cold meats and certain types of cheese. And above all, smoking and drinking alcohol should be stopped.
In recent years, alcohol-free beer has become a real trend in the beer market here in the UK. More and more big beer brands and small craft breweries are starting to brew it to the delight of non-alcoholic drinkers. However, there are many questions about this kind of beer.
We’re back for the second edition of ‘Must Try Kegs’. Last week we spotlighted three fantastic kegs from our MultiTRY range and this week is no different. From a personal favourite lager of mine, to a couple of flavour sensations, take a read through why we think you have to try these three.
