There are two major beer types in the world: lagers and ales. Simply put, the yeast in lage rs ferments at the bottom of the fe rmentation container, while ale yeasts ferment on the top. Lagers are also generally brewed at cooler temperatures. Lagers typically have a crisper and cleaner flavor than ales, with the light - colored pilsner being a popu lar version.

Heineken Lager Beer is brewed using the same method developed in 1873 and takes the better part of a month to brew--around twice as long as regular beer. That extended "lagering" gives Heineken its distinctive flavor and clarity. The whole brewing process, from brewhouse and fermentation to maturation, is to be described as traditional and classic. Very strict control of the recipe and highly efficient quality control have made Heineken as successful as it is. The characteristics of Heineken include its fresh and fruity yeast aroma and its mildly bitter taste, enhancing the drinkability of the beer. Heineken is brewed in a natural brewing process with no additives. Its ingredients are water, barley malt, hops, and the unique Heineken A-yeast for the fermentation in the brewing process.
