Yes, it's an ale...but it's similar to Dead Guy, which is Rogue's Americanized Maibock, so I posted under the Bock style.

This beer is absolutely awesome. If I had to compare it to a commercial brew, it's like Sam Adams lager with more flavor/body and a touch of alcohol warmth.

Do you remember what temp you stored this at for primary and/or secondary? Was it mid or lower end of an ale?

Are you using 70% for the mash efficiency? Also, what Saaz hops are you using , German or Czech?

I brewed this a couple of months ago, with a couple of modifications. I used belgian pilsner for my base malt, and cara 45 instead of the crystal 60 (LHBS was out). I also subbed Northern Brewer for the Perle hops, and did a single decoction (more for color than flavor - I doubt it affected the flavor much). Finally, I used S-05 yeast.

The beer has been in bottles for a couple of weeks now (not fully carbed), but I shared a bottle with a buddy tonight, and it was awesome. Great malty flavor and aroma, just the right amount of sweetness (and pretty decent color). I'm hoping the alcohol flavor mellows with a bit more aging, but it's pretty close to perfect right now.

I really enjoyed it the couple of times I brewed it. I haven't made it in a while...maybe I'll revisit it soon!
