Subject: Lager vs Ale
Date: 1992-04-08 02:47:23 GMT
Darryl Richman said some very good things about the comment 4/7 and I would
like to add a couple more:
 In Germany the ales (alts/kolsch's and I think weizens) are conditioned
(lagered) near freezing for up to a month to make for a smoother taste.
I remember an alt in Duesseldorf with a label that said "top fermented
lagered beer" (in German of course).
 There is no such thing as an isipid bland lager beer in Germany (unless
you happen upon an American Bud in who knows I don't know where place).
Most homebrewers that return from Europe have a better idea of how good a
lager beer can really be. That is the challenge; to do it at home.
