That Boris Becker comparison made for a good laugh :D. Btw. yes, I am coming from Germany and I do enjoy stout. Only recently, I got my hand on an imperial stout from a german regional brewery that I enjoyed very much. Having grown up with Pilsener beer, I only recently (about 2,5 years ago) I discovered other styles beside the ones popular in Germany (Pale Ale, IPA, Porter, Stout). That might be because I live in a small city and it was hard to get some out-of-the-box-beers in pubs. Keep up your good work!

Is a "mild" what we in America call "ESB"?
mild can be dark or light but usually low abv. Mostly it's associated with black beers around 3-4%. ESBs were invented by Fullers in the 70s - and it's a strong, malty and hoppy beer. Balanced but rich and fruitcakey.
Jamie Oliver - Drinks (2 years ago)
Not quite - in the UK, a mild is it's own unique brew - heavy on malt and very light on hops. It's usually quite dark , while (if our research is correct) a ESB more of a pale ale, with a decent amount of hops. But, if any ale-heads out there know more about ESB please yell out! We'd love to know more about it x
Vasily Krushev (2 years ago)
pretentious as always
eliten0Ob (1 year ago)
Yeah sure. Anything that contains anything else than pils malt and not brewed in the czech republic is default pretentious. Or even better yet; bakers are pretty fucking pretentious with their malt loafs or semolina baguettes. Beer is as pretentious as you make it out to be. Being craft means squat other than it's brewed in smaller volumes by a professional or autodidact brewer.
Vasily Krushev (1 year ago)
i'm talking about "craft" beer in general mate. I used to work that very famous craft beer bar starting with M. I know what's up.
erm... we compared a weissbier to Boris Becker. I'd call that pretty lowbrow.

+CarlosAGV Very good shout all round! Thanks so much for watching and feeding back your thoughts - big love!
Lenier Ashcraft (2 years ago)
How can you claim to be a beer enthusiast and claim lager is brewed slow? It's fermented for a long time. Not brewed. Brewing is the process of boiling the wort before pitching the yeast.
Aidan Jimmy (1 year ago)
+The Craft Beer Channel  Thanks for the recognition! Great to hear from you guys... I do understand that you guys try to appeal to a wider audience, and not specifically beer nerds! Which is why you simplify slightly. Cheers!
Yep you're all correct. We watered that bit down a bit too much! Definitely not brewed slow, just rested after fermentation while some more processes happen to reduce yeast flavours and clear of sediment.
Ta12dankdiscoveries (1 year ago)
It's been described as follows: Ale = active…the yeast moves around the tank fermenting, making the process quicker, while Lager = lazy…the yeast settles at the bottom of the tank and doesn't move around…making the fermentation much lengthier.
Jose Ramos (1 year ago)
Yes, Lagers are carbonated at a lower temprature than Ale's. That is how Lagers get that crisp refreshing taste.
Aidan Jimmy (2 years ago)
Lenier is right though.. The whole reason it is called a lager is because it is "lagered" (or fermented) at a particular temperature for an extended period of time. And that should be articulated in the video... I do like the craft beer boys, but they lack substance sometimes.

davidbrun (3 years ago)
Lager? What??? Lager is not a style... it's a type of fermentation, so it would be more of a family of beer styles... inside lagers you can have rauchbiers, bocks, doppelbocks, pilsners, viennas, the sad watery standard american lagers, etc... all of them very different among each other.
Kath G (9 months ago)
Yes. I call American lagers "piss water"! Can't understand how my mountain-man Marine husband could drink the stuff!
Benevolent Despot (1 year ago)
Originally Porter was a cheap alternative for Sailors and river porters, hence where the fuckin' name comes from, not "men with beards in front of the fire", at least have a sentence about it's origins at least.
Very true - lager refers to the yeast or the process of lagering. However, for this video we decided that might be too much detail. On our channel we go into a lot more detail.

what's the difference between porter and stout?
The Craft Beer Channel (3 years ago)
Not a lot, and everyone argues about it. The original story is that a stout is a strong porter (it was actually called a stout porter) but terms like imperial have muddied the water. We think of a stout as a thicker bodied, malty beer - while a stout is lighter on the tongue, maybe with more hops or spices. ABV wise they are now the same.
w0g (4 years ago)
Can you help a yank out and explain what a mild is (maybe list a couple of popular export brands)?  I've never heard of that in my life.  
The Craft Beer Channel (3 years ago)
Well, none of it really gets exported but it's a classic British style. Imagine a session porter. It's kind of like that. Brewdog have an imperial mega-hoppy version called Nanny State. Try to find that.

+gutorage Hey, thanks for your comment! We are very aware that lager is a family of beers (and refers to the kind of yeast). However, as an introduction to beer styles that's a bit complicated. Check out our lager vid where we show 3 different kinds of lager: Three Lagers With Flavour | Craft Beer Boys | Jamie Oliver's Drinks Tube And us for us not knowing about beer, Jonny will out-nerd you any day!

gutorage (4 years ago)
Can´t belive that you guys actually said "lager" is a style of beer. It is a family of beers, and there is lots of different kind/ styles of lagers, such as rauchbier, pilseners, SAL, PAL  etc. You should be more carefully when talking about something you don't know.

Nop,there is no " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reinheitsgebot " and no old traditon like in the magic circle. We have best mountinwater, great hops and barley even the oldest brewery. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weihenstephan_Abbey Also"Salzburg in Austria has 641 years brewing tradition." Thats traditon, thats history and this is why there is such a great beer. If you don´t agree, then you didn´t even try. So..... i don´t feed the troll now.

Great Video !!!  Obviously there would be tooo much things to say about beer styles, and you wisely covered all the type of "colors" (often associable to one particular style of beer). But in my opinion you missed some important. Example: belgian beers (abbey, etc...), double malt, red beers, ambers....

+Jaime Bellon if you like things a bit sweet try a malty red ale (like Brewdog's 5am saint) or a bock lager (like Huber lager) - or a Belgian fruit beer such as Liefmanns. Fruit beer can be very sour though...but we love it for that reason!
The Craft Beer Channel (4 years ago)

nice introduction to the most popular beers. it would be quite nice if you could show some possible combinations with food (linking to jamie's recipes) btw; i bet it will blow your mind if i tell you that there is a "dunkles weissbier" (dark white-beer) in germany as well :O
