The BYO article first states 40*F as the upper end of lagering temp without associating it with fermentation temp, and then quotes Noonan (conveniently) mentioning that lagering times are to be linked with alc% rather than temp.

My own experience parallels the above.

I hate style n*zis as much as the next guy, but it doesn't hurt to describe things accurately.

BTW <- what kind of smiley is this? A Weizenguy maybe ?

I agree. I made a lager like beer using SafeAle 56 yeast, which is a very clean yeast. It turned out quite well. Fermented at about 70.

Why would you describe it as a lager like beer rather than a light ale ( like a Koelsch)?

I really wasn't sure what to call it when I made it.
