Default Holiday Spruce Beer

Just bottled my Spruce beer after lagering for 3 months. I had to overcome a couple snafu's but I am pleased. Recipe was based on an Octoberfest profile with the addition of some chocolate malt. The spruce is upfront but not overpowering followed with some chocolate notes and finishes slightly sweet with just a touch of bitterness. I would say it is middle of the road that would appeal to non real beer drinkers. To the rest of us it could use some kind of kick to make it something special.

Congratulations! Spruce is tricky to get right. The three months of lagering, no doubt, did the trick.
