In this episode Bob and I continue with lager month as we breakdown American Lagers. The American lager has little in the way of hop and malt character. A straw to gold, very clean and crisp, highly carbonated lager. Next to American Light lager this might be the second most popular beer style in the U.S. Style examples:
ABV: 4.2-5.3% IBUs: 8-18 Color: 2-3.5
Serving Temp: Go cold — anywhere in the 33- to 40-degree range is suitable for macro lagers. This is around your average refrigerator temperature, with 33 degrees, near freezing, on the low end. Your sweet spot is really between 36 and 38 degrees, which is the temperature of most draft beer systems.
Serving Pressure: 10-14 PSI
Drink representative selection of the week: Drink representative selection of the week: Royal Docks Brewing Company – Backyard Crusher 5.1% and 18 IBUs
Beer as described by brewer: At Royal Docks, we simply adore intellectually challenging brews that beckon one to explore their depths and parse each nuanced sip, but this ain't one of those beers. See, there's thinkin' beer and there's drinkin' beer - and Backyard Crusher is a drinkin' beer. Sure, we could tell you all about the Egyptian black lime, Mediterranean Sea-salt and Citra hops that make this tangy golden quencher so easy on the tongue, but that would defeat the purpose
