Sorry about that - you are right, snark is not appropriate. I just disagree with your assessment of light lagers. They can be quite flavorful and are among the more difficult styles to brew well.
Best wishes to whatever you choose to brew.
Cheers. (P.S. I am not an administrator here - just a frequent poster; that does not make my opinion right, of course).
thanks. now, even the title "light lagers" can be confusing, as the assumption is a low gravity, yet also pale lager beer. though it is entirely possible to have a lowish gravity dunkel, schwarzbier, open style that is dark or heavily flavoured. however, the general state of them at least where i live is an excuse for the craft brewery to cheap out on materials and aim for the broadest demographic possible's existing tastes. the "a pale/light lager is the hardest beer to brew IN FACT" adage is simply not accurate in 2021 imho. the intermediately skilled and experienced homebrewer should have zero problem making a light and pale lager. i think the confusion on this is people's understanding of macrobreweries making a very consistent from bottle to bottle, batch to batch brew with no major flavour issues using the methods they do. these methods severely inhibit good flavour ie. high OG brewing, extreme cost considerations (absolute minimal hopping -bud apparently has ~7 IBU if im not mistaken), no strongly flavoured malts to cover up the base malt's plainness, etc.
please note i think my initial comment was in the spirit of saying that a ~1.036OG bitter is a better choice IMHO than a light lager and should have/has been recognized as such for a long time.
1. making a light lager for a normally skilled and equipped homebrewer is not difficult
2. their key "thing" is that they are not strongly flavoured, yet not offensive. chuggable.
3. their "light" aspect denotes a non-aggressive hopping and non-challenging flavour profile.
4. this all adds up to something -i argue- that is completely inferior to the age-old session bitter, which has preceded the craft light lagerism that has been popular for about a decade now.
i am completely off light lagers as low og beers.also i dont like them.
