Lager vs. ale (2) Mon, Feb 07, 2011
This is a topic that comes up regularly in conversations, so hopefully writing (typing) it will help me remember:  What's the difference between a lager and an ale? 

Lagers originated in Germany and are brewed at lower temperatures (40-50°F) and use bottom-fermenting yeast, leading to a mild, crisp, fruity taste. 

Ales originated in England and are brewed at higher temperatures (60-75°F) and use top-fermenting yeast, leading to a nutty, often bitter taste. #food

Lager is lower (temp and yeast location)

My friend Johnny Mnemonic helps me remember.
