99% of the time, you are working with ALE yeast.  Mr. Beer's products use the word "Lager" in some of the names - American Lager, Oktoberfest Lager - that are really Ales.     The wheat beers have a wheat yeast.   The specialty brews, i.e. Craft or Seasonal, sometimes have a unique yeast. Some recipes will come with a unique yeast, and instructions to use that yeast and ignore the ones under the cap.  If it's a lager, it will tell you to ferment 57 - 62 or so.
