Descriptions

OG
Stands for “Original Gravity.” This is the specific gravity of the unfermented wort. The primary contribution to specific gravity is sugar, some of which is fermented into alcohol, and some of which remains in the finished beer to give sweetness and body. A specific gravity of 1.040 corresponds to a 10% (by weight) sugar solution, and will produce, on average, about 4% alcohol (measured by volume).

FG
Stands for “Final Gravity.” The AHA added FG numbers to the style guidelines in 1995, and the charts have not yet been updated. The final gravity is the specific gravity of the fermented beer. It will always be less than the original gravity because during fermentation heavy sugars are converted to lighter carbon dioxide and alcohol. The gravity is reduced both by the reduced sugar content, and because alcohol is lighter than water. Thus the sugar content of the finished beer cannot be calculated directly from the final gravity, without taking the alcohol content into account. See the useful formula page for details on this computation.

Alcohol
Alcohol content is measured in percent. Just to keep you on your toes, the percentage may be either by volume or weight. Since alcohol is lighter than water, the %volume (frequently abbreviated v/v) number is larger than the %weight (w/w) number by a factor of 1.25. The numbers in this table are %volume, which is the standard for wines and liquors in the US, and for all alcoholic beverages in most parts of the world. For some reason, beer in the US is commonly measured in %weight (e.g., 3.2% beer has at most 3.2% by weight of alcohol, or 4% by volume).

IBUs
The International Bitterness Unit measures the bitterness of the beer from the hops. There are other sources, but the hops are usually the primary source of bitterness. One IBU corresponds to 1mg of isomerized alpha acid per liter of beer. The threshold of taste is about 12IBUs; below that level there is no perceptible bitterness (for most people, most of the time). Generally, at higher beer OG values, it requires higher levels of IBUs to give the same perceived bitterness, as balanced by the residual sweetness of the finished beer.

Color (SRM)
Beer color in the US is measured by the “Standard Reference Method” (SRM), or in “degrees Lovibond”. The numbers are about the same between the two scales, and they tend to be used interchangeably. Higher values of the color measurement correspond to darker beers. The scale is not linear: 10SRM is not twice as dark as 5SRM, for example. The Europeans (and most of the rest of the world) use a different scale: EBC. A very rough conversion from SRM to EBC is to multiply by 3. This only works at all well for SRM values less than 4 or 5.

u-Do’s kitology descriptors

The Lite 

The Lite is a pale golden, crisp; clean easy to drink beer with a lower alcohol level that shares pure refreshing flavours and aromas.

 

The Corodelo Cerveza 

A pale to straw golden colour lager has good carbonation and a clean, with slight sweetness and a refreshing crisp finish. Lower in alcohol so you can enjoy more than one.

 

The European Pilsner 

A classic, the Euro Pils has the malt forward flavour and slight sweetness balanced with smooth hop profile and fresh spicy floral hop aroma

 

The True Lager 

This beer makes your mouth water, it’s fresh and pure, and it is a fine balanced Bohemian style Lager which is a little richer in color leaning to deep burnish gold. The use of the Pilsner malt along with Vienna and Wheat gives it a light clean quenching taste, yet balanced with the Perle and Saaz hop characters that are complex and lend a pronounced spicy, fruity, floral bouquet that all ends at the same time in the finish.

 

The Pale Ale 

Deep golden amber in color with a brilliant perfumed nose; dry hop fermented with tropical and citrus notes lets the medium body beer taste nicely from a lightly sweet to a dry and mild bitter finish, deliciously quenching!

 

The HoneyBee Ale 

A very pleasant easy to drink Ale, the malt characteristics give a flavourful refreshing foundation for the hint of honey and citrusy hop notes. On this note lets all help save the Bee’s, without them life on earth will be very different as we know it, Bee aware, Bee helpful, thank you for Beeing there!

 

The Red Ale 

A beautiful malt-driven beer with medium hop character, caramelly with a touch of coffee like bitterness on the finish from the chocolate and roasted barley, with a deep reddish hue imparted by the selected malt used.

 

Seven Days IPA 

At 7.1%alc/vol with over 65 IBU’s its big, dark, golden; appropriately hoppy which leaves you with a well balanced mouth feel that’s refreshing with citrus flavours.

 

The Dark Lager 

The DL has fresh roasted chocolate and coffee on the nose with a light clean flavourful body. It is well balanced with a crisp and refreshing aftertaste. It leaves your taste buds watering for more…

 

The Porter 

A malty dark ale with its complex and flavorful roast characteristics, this beer is designed to tease your taste with caramel flavors, and hints of toasted grain bread. Hailing from England, the Porter is a smooth drinking brew with notes of chocolate, caramel, roasted flavourings and a wonderful smooth ride on your palate that will make you go Ahhhh! Another one please!

 

The Hefeweizen

Hefeweizen is a traditional Bavarian wheat beer and with certain yeast will produce a signature clove and banana character. The hopping rate is low, which allows an underlying, grainy, bready flavour from the wheat and Pilsner malt to shine through. It is a light approachable beer with a hazy appearance and has a soft texture while quenching your thirst.
