Lager is a type of beer conditioned at low temperature.

Lagers can be paleamber, or dark. Pale lager is the most widely consumed and commercially available style of beer.

As well as maturation in cold storage, most lagers are also distinguished by the use of Saccharomyces pastorianus yeast, a "bottom-fermenting" yeast that also ferments at relatively cold temperatures.

It is possible to use lager yeast in a warm fermentation process, such as with American steam beer; while German Altbier and Kölsch are brewed with Saccharomyces cerevisiae top-fermenting yeast at a warm temperature, but with a cold-storage finishing stage, and classified as obergäriges lagerbier (top-fermented lager beer).

Pilsner (also pilsener or simply pils) is a type of pale lager.

It takes its name from the Bohemian city of Pilsen, where it was first produced.

The world's first pale lager, the original Pilsner Urquell, is still produced there today.
