Default A Good "Lagering" Temp for my "HefeLagerAle"?

I made my Honey Ginger Winter Warmer a couple weeks ago, using a mix of hefe, ale and lager yeasts. It came out great...fermented around 58-60f, which was a good range, I thought, for something that was being eaten with both bottom- and top-fermenters.

Anyway, I've done 15 beers so far, and some of them are turning out with this weird sweet/sour taste to them that I don't care for. So I'm biting the bullet. I ordered a johnson temp controller today, and I'm buying a second chest freezer tonight.

My question is, when I lager my winter warmer, what's a good temp? Since it's an ale and a lager, should I go a little higher? Or should I hover around 33-35?
