In case you're not aware, ales and lagers are actually two totally different types of beer. While that can translate to notable differences in taste, color, and aroma, what it comes down to is that lagers use an entirely different type of yeast during fermentation compared to ales. So, when you're guzzling an IPA (or India Pale Ale), you're drinking an ale. But when you're drinking a can of most of the non-craft beer out there (think Bud Light, Coors Light, etc.), you're sipping a lager.
We see so many affordable, mainstream lagers on the market because the style is approachable. It's drinkable without being notably hoppy, bitter, or malty.
Birdsong Brewing realized that this easy-drinking style was something so many people loved in years past for a reason. So, the brewery carefully crafted a throwback beer to "wind back the tape" and re-introduce a style that's a bit retro to its year-round beer collection.
