Lager

Pale lagers are what we typically associate with beer. While Bud, Miller, and Coors are big pale lager sellers, many craft lagers have emerged also. Bocks and pilsners are types of lagers. Lagers are distinct from ales because their yeast is bottom-fermenting, meaning the yeast sinks to the bottom and does not release as many flavorful esters as ales.

Color: Light to golden yellow

Taste: Light and carbonated, mild, clean, slightly malty

Alcohol Content: Low, typically 4-5%
