Octoberfest

Inspired by this article about festbiers, I thought: hey, I should make one of those! Soooo here we are.

Malty and caramel-but not toffee, so not as rich or deep. It’s pretty tasty; nice effervescence on the finish, so it clears off the palate nice.

Is there just a drop of butteryness in there? I think there might be. But a small flaw in a beer that’s quite drinkable. It actually fits well with the early Autumn; clean enough that if it’s warm, that suits the day, but matly enough that on those cooler days, more of this seems good.
