This is a little bigger beer than style allows for. This was my first batch I ran through my grain mill and thus alot higher effiency than I thought I would get. It can be easily scaled back to within style guidlines.
Golden Orange to Copper in color. Has a 2 finger off-white creamy head. Crystal clear.
Very malt forward. No detectable hop nose.
Sweet and Malty is the first impression on the tounge. Slight toffee flavor. You get a small punch of the Noble hops, but it is very blanced. Leaves you thirsty for another sip!
On the thinner side. Could use a little more body. Finishes nice and crisp.
Great Oktoberfest! Clean malt flavor with just enough bitterness to balance. Next time I think I will up the Alpha Rest to 152 for a little more body. Other than that, not changing a thing! This is an easy drinker and the 6.66% alcohol can really sneak up on you!
