What not a lager? Looks great. Looks a lot like BrewBama’s grain bill, which I just kicked a keg of.  Delicious.
Grain bill here was pale ale malt, wheat, some C40 and also some Copper Malt.  I admit that I am liking this Copper malt in small amounts in almost any beer.  There is a nice depth of flavor and I feel like it really helps with some head formation and stability.  I used a bit in a Czech Pils recently.  Sue me!  :D

I make a lot of lagers in the spring and summer.  This was only the third ale I have made in 2020.  There's another one in my on-deck fridge and another one fermenting now.  Cheers.
The Copper Malt sounds good. I am a huge graham cracker fan so that sounds great in a beer. Copper malt doesn’t seem widely available though.

Prost!

Looks nice.  I always say that a festbier is too good to only be enjoyed for 2 weeks out of the year.  I do think some people would react strangely if you offered them a festbier in December or March or June but you could always call it something else... German Amber Lager, German Lagerbier, Tent Bier, etc.

Stjørdal, made by Sugar Creek Malt in their Sainhuss. Split the batch between Hornindal Kveik and Bayern Lager. Bayern Lager is a little more clear and shown below (or above?) Intensely smoky, although it has a lot more depth than other smoked beers I've made in the past. Not sure if it's because the malt is fresher.

My new Triple.  Nice notes of honey at the start and dry finish!

Enjoying my "Kveik the Keg Brown Ale," which is an American-style brown ale with Omega's Hornindal kveik repitched from a previous batch. I'm super happy with this batch, and it was fun to experiment with a kveik-based recipe that wasn't just another 12% abv IPA. I patterned this batch after a clone recipe for Wasatch Premium Ale (via Jennifer Talley's Brewing Session Beers book), and it clocks in at roughly 3.6% abv.

Recipe and other details at the blog: https://andybrews.com/2020/11/10/kveik-the-keg-brown-ale/
