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.

It also matters when you are trying to describe your beer accurately to others or when sharing information on forums like this. It serves no purpose to give a 'noob' misleading guidelines.

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)?

Because I didn't know any better? lol.
I really wasn't sure what to call it when I made it.
