White Labs English Ale WL007
This is the first all grain beer that I have brewed. I used it for a home brew competition at our annual Oktoberfest. I chose this style due to the yeast's high attenuation and the beer would would be fairly clean in 18 days. Between 8 entries this one got the overall approval for peoples choice. Won 30-35# of various malt from the local Cargil malting plant.
The beer was much clearer than the picture, but do to hauling the keg across town it rustled up the sediment.
Sad part is that the keg is very light and not much left for me, but at least a lot of people got to enjoy it.
This is a beer that might brewed often as it is very drinkable.
