Lager

The term lager is used for beer that has been conditioned and fermented at low temperature settings. This is probably the most consumed type of commercially available beer in the entire world. Some excellent examples of this beer format include Bock, Dortmunder Export, Pilsner and Marzen. Dark lagers well known throughout the world are Schwarzbier and Dunkel.

In some countries, Lager is made with large amounts of rice and maize. The practice of using such adjuncts entered America to thin out the American beers by balancing out protein and barley content. Scientifically, adjuncts increase sugar content and therefore increase alcohol content without affecting the process. Earlier, to increase lager’s alcohol content, one would have to use all malt grain.

There are two types of lager available today. One is called pale lager with a lighter body and color and the other is called dark lager with darker body and heavier taste. Both lager developed late in the 19th century and have been since then perfected to produce a unique varying taste from each other. While pale lager is popular world over, dark lager is slowly gaining momentum.
