Features of Lager Beer
Lager is the most popular beer in the world because of its relatively low alcohol content of about 4-6% ABV, providing a balanced taste between the aroma of malt and the bitterness of hops.
Lager beer ranges in color from pale straw yellow to very dark. But in general, the beer lines are highly refreshing with a smooth bitter taste and a refreshing drinking feeling. That’s also why most of the big beer brands make lager beer.
Easy to drink lager is also relatively easy for homebrewers to try. However, with the submerged fermentation beer, homebrewers have to wait longer for the fermentation process or store the beer at a cold temperature for a period of time, but surely, your lager beer will reach perfection.
