BEER TIP: What is the difference between an ale and a lager?

The difference is the yeast. Ale yeasts, or top-fermenting yeasts, ferment at temperatures between 65° and 75° F. Bottom-fermenting lager yeasts ferment at colder temperatures between 45° and 55° F. The word lager means “to store” in German. Following fermentation, lager beers are stored for a period of weeks to months at temperatures near freezing. Lager yeasts generally produce beers with a crisp, clean quality, while ale yeast produce beers with a rounder mouthfeel and more yeast-derived fruitiness.
