Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The first beers were brewed in open baths where wild yeasts would blow in from the fields. this created a vinegar like beer that had to be aged before it could be drunk. Hence beers called "Old", a slightly sharp hoppy beer, and a style no longer brewed in the UK called "Stale" (for those who know it this is the equivalent of a belgian "Lambic").

Actually having tasted it recently it's more of an Old than a stale, but never mind.
