Lager beer: What is it? 

Most beer drinkers think of lager as a refreshing and light beer of around 5%. Although not wrong, lager is actually a collective name for bottom-fermenting beer styles, where the colour varies from dark brown to light blonde and the ABV reaches up to 10%. 

The name is to do with how this beer style is stored. In fact, the word lager derives from German, meaning "warehouse". In order to to preserve the smooth and balanced tones of lagers, beers of this nature are kept in the cold for a period ranging from 1 to 3 months.

Lagers are commonly, although not always, lighter in colour. See our article about dark beers. Lagers tend to have a clear colour and a white foam, with bubbles that rise to the surface. We suggest drinking them as fresh as possible to enjoy them at their best.
