There should be a new award for when you finally manage to drink more IPAs than pale lagers. It’s about to happen, and I feel like it means something. It probably means I haven’t spent as much time in non-beer drinking countries. I have only about 20 ipas to go through before I catch up and don’t foresee any upcoming pale lagers other than an indonesia country rating I’ve had kicking around for a while. I guess the real sign of a master is when you have more stouts or saisons than IPAs and lagers, and the sign of immortality is having more lambics rated than lagers or ipas. Anyway, don’t pay me any mind. People used to talk to themselves out loud, now they type to themselves quietly in their room sipping beer. Fuck it, I’m gonna cook some hot dogs.

My hats off to those who have logged 500 or more Pale Lager ratings.

Just in terms of the writing part, a lot of the pale lager ratings i’ve done have been a lot more fun and are probably better to read than an average brown ale rating - "hoppy, malt, ave carb. Pours brown with ok head and lacing. Slightly bitter finish."

Not lambic, though fruit lambic isn’t lagging far behind.

Glad to see pale lagers have fallen to 8th place for me. I’m pretty sure IPAs have always been the top for me (well, after my first few ratings obviously).

Drank more than pale lager:
Sour Ale’s, Geuze’s, Fruit-Lambic’s, RIS, Quad’s, IPA’s, DIPA’s, etc. etc.

Pale lager is #13 for me. Maybe I should be doing more pale lagers ? I have no idea how or why you guys did so many.

I am obviously not working hard enough as pale lagers are #34 on my list.

But I agree with the sentiment by the OP.
