Lagers

Fermented and conditioned at low temperatures, German lagers tend to be simple, clean biers with a light aroma and flavor. Although light lagers are the most popular, color can range from a pale yellow to a dark brown.

Köstritzer Scwarzbier

German Schwarzbier (4.8%)

Spaten Lager

Doppelbocks

With alcohol concentrations ranging from 7.0% to over 9.0% by volume, the doppelbock (double bock) is simply a stronger version of the traditional bock style. They range from a dark gold to a dark brown color and tend to be sweet and malty with little detectable hops and a noticeable alcohol flavor. 

Hofbräu Delicator

Doppelbock (7.5%)

Paulaner Salvator

Spaten Optimator

Pilsners

Simplicity has been the key to the pilsner’s success. Lightly kilned malt barley, noble hops, lager yeast and water yield a clean, simple bier that is similar to a traditional lager. German pilsners tend to be lighter, earthier and have a slighlty lower alcohol concentration that lager.

Warsteiner Pilsner

Weissbiers

Weissbier, or wheat bier, is the only German bier style that is technically an ale. All others are lagers. Weissbiers replace a hefty amount of malted barley with malted wheat and use a special strain of yeast, which gives the bier its characteristic banana and clove flavor. Hefeweizens, or unfiltered wheat biers, are typically cloudy with an orange tint, and Dunkelweizens are their dark wheat counterparts.

Seasonals

Oktoberfests (fall): Oktoberfest biers, also known as Märzens, are typically full-bodied brews with a rich flavor profile and a mild hop presence. Color can range from pale yellow, like Hofbräu Oktoberfest, to a darker amber color, much like Spaten and Paulaner’s versions, which are now available year-round.

Spaten Oktoberfest

Märzen/Oktoberfest (5.9%)

Maibocks (spring): The Maibock style is a Helles (light) lager brewed to Bock strength, with alcohol concentrations ranging from 6.3% to 7.5% by volume. Maibocks are typically less malty than traditional bocks, but still have a relativey sweet flavor profile, a low hops presence and a noticebale hint of alcohol
