  • Ale is a type of beer brewed from malted barley using a warm fermentation with a strain of brewers' yeast. The yeast will ferment the beer quickly, giving it a sweet, full bodied and fruity taste. Most ales contain hops, which help preserve the beer and impart a bitter herbal flavour that balances the sweetness of the malt. Another way to define ale is as "top-fermented"; that is, the yeast, rather than sinking to the bottom as in a lager, floats on the surface of the liquid during fermentation. There are variations in this definition, but it holds in general. Wikipedia
