Lager - is a type of beer conditioned at low temperatures.[1] Lagers can be yellow pale, amber, or dark. Pale lager is the most widely consumed and commercially available style of beer. Well-known brands include Pilsner Urquell, Molson Canadian, Miller, Stella Artois, Beck’s, Brahma, Budweiser Budvar, Corona, Snow, Tsingtao, Singha, Kirin, Quilmes, Heineken, Kingfisher, Carling, Foster’s, Carlsberg, Birra Moretti and Tennents.

Ale - is a type of beer brewed using a warm fermentation method, resulting in a sweet, full-bodied and fruity taste. Historically, the term referred to a drink brewed without hops.

As with most beers, ale typically has a bittering agent to balance the malt and act as a preservative. Ale was originally bittered with gruit, a mixture of herbs or spices boiled in the wort before fermentation. Later, hops replaced gruit as the bittering agent.
