It occurred to me I don't drink German beers often.
What else to they have worth drinking besides wheats and lagers?
That pretty much just leaves you with koelsh and altbier.
There are no German Ales ???
I prefer ales. Wait...those are ales...doh!
Don't say Rauchbier. It doesn't count.

That's a good link, but I need short and easy answers in the form of German beer recommendations.
I don't need to fly to Belgium to drink a great Belgian beer. What's the deal with Germany?
There are many wonderful German beers. My favorites are pilsners, oktoberfests, bocks, dopplebocks, etc, but most of them are lagers of course.
I like Kolsch and altbiers, but they are almost impossible to find in the US.
In retrospect, it appears the Germans really screwed themselves with the Bavarian purity law of 1516.
