Overview for the Strong Lager

The Strong Lager is simply a stronger version of a standard Lager. In the United States, it is known as Malt Liquor and it typically uses adjuncts to lighten its palate. While in Europe and Asia, the brew is relatively the same but consists mostly of malt or is all malt. Fermentation is often kept short to keep the strong alcohol content from overwhelming the aroma and palate.
