Ed's Oktoberfast - renamed Wolpertingerfest '08
A nice creamy head sits atop a light amber beer. Carbonation bubbles lazily float to the surface. Clarity is great with just a bit of clouding from the Kölsch yeast. It is much clearer than the pic shows.
Light caramel and spice.
Lacing and Head:
Consistent head keeps the beer lightly dusted to the last drop. The lacing is very fine and spreads evenly.
Begins smooth and creamy the texture is more apparent than any recognizable taste. The middle reveals the alcohol with white pepper and caramel sweetness. The malts come through subtly. The finish shows the maltiness but asserts enough hops to dry out the palate. This goes down easy and is simple enough to drink all night.
I was really happy with this beer. I think next time I would mash at 156 to leave the finish a bit maltier.
Way to go Ed. This is a winner!
