Historical Beer: Pre-Prohibition Lager

BJCP 27a

Overall Impression
A clean, refreshing, but bitter pale lager, often showcasing a grainy-sweet corn flavor. All malt or rice-based versions have a crisper, more neutral character. The higher bitterness level is the largest differentiator between this style and most modern mass-market pale lagers, but the more robust flavor profile also sets it apart.
Commercial Examples
Occasional brewpub and microbrewery specials
