From Heineken to Budweiser, from Peroni to Corona, most commercially brewed beer is golden lager, even if most of them are not made to the same standard as the originals. For most German brewers and almost all German beer consumers there is little doubt that pils, pilsner, or pilsener the terms are used interchangeably is a style of German origin. Part of the reason for this may be that the creator of the style was Bavarian born and trained Josef Groll — from Vilshofen near Passau. See groll, josef.

Styles[ edit ] A wide variety of local styles are known as lagers. They can range in color from extremely pale, as with many pilsners and American lagers, through amber colored beers such as bocks and Vienna lagers, to dark brown and near black in color, as in dunkels and schwarzbiers. The depth of color comes from the specific grain bill used in the beers, paler lagers use unroasted barley and may even add other grains such as rice or corn to lighten the color and provide a crisp, bright finish to the flavor. Darker lagers use roasted grains and malts to produce a more roasted, even slightly burnt, flavor profile. Exists in many sub-styles including maibock traditionally served in May, lighter in color and body than a traditional bock , doppelbock with a higher alcohol content than traditionally , eisbock, a type of ice beer which has been concentrated by freezing, as well as several others. Red lager, is a medium amber to red colored lager, with a malty flavor, as typified by Killian's Irish Red Lager, a style created in the United States to mimic an older red ale from Ireland. Vienna lager, which can range from medium amber to brown colored, originating in Vienna , Austria but later also heavily influencing brewing in Mexico , typified by beers such as Modelo Negra and Dos Equis Ambar.
