      Where's the lager luv?

      Specifically USA lagers (not macro pilsners)
      Church Street- magisterium maibock with Great Lakes- eliot ness amber a close second.
      Sam Adams Boston lager is midrange.
      Shiner Bock is bottom of the list.
      I've only had one magisterium last year ,,, a single from the big beer barn so need to revisit that brewery.

      Tried a single bottle of Victory festbier from Downington PA. Yea, a leftover from last fall but definately still good. Its called a amber lager and the bottle says special decoction boiling, which I believe is partly how the germans brews are so good. Anyway, its very foamy and the foam sorta taste like a german pilsner. The rest is not bad, just sorta weird , cause it taste are sorta muted with very soft hop bitterness. Its malt sweetness is strongish , but doesnt linger in a bad way. Its different but yet reminds me of sam adams because its color is stronger than its taste. So to me its middle ground type beer like samuel adams. I have noticed that american ambers have less flavor than german pilsners.

      Since our boss must like a lager and is a really swell gal , I happened to taste another single worth mentioning. And would like to, having noticed references of non-gentile ancestry of the aformentioned special one. That even though my ancestry profile via siblings does contain a small percentage of said ancestry, I did not wash down matzo balls with this Church Str brewery marzen (octoberfest) with a braided blond holding mugs on the can. And pretty good , but starting to realize I may like hops more than I knew because I like paler hoppier lagers more than I realized my matzo balls bow to our star.... I need mav to right this.

      USA VERSES germany. . Friday nights fights
      GREAT lakes eliot ness amber lager verses Hofbrau original lager
      Yea its a two beer night..lol
      Anyway, fuck yea america wins!
      But the HB is a decent pale lager with 5.1 abv and the eliot ness is a 6.1 abv amber toasty lager. The higher abv means more malt of some kind was dumped in....no ad-junks in these biers to boost the abv like us macro swill .. but still, I choose the good ole USA

      German lager top 5 versUs USA lager top five.

      But maybe I need to break them down into pales, ambers, dunkels, dopplebocks. There is no way you can compare a dopplebock to a pale. And some use mostly veinna malts , others are mixing pale malts with munich malts. Personally with my limited knowledge I wish they'd mix veinna and munich and maybe some do.


      I think they sell Titos at the local convenience stores now. ...alot closer than the big beer barn...nah,,,,, once a lager luvver always one.
