Session Dusseldorf Altbier

2013-01-29 7:32pm

Just Tap'd this 2-days short of 30 Day's old. Similar to the previous Alt beer I brewed with more specialty grains to test the difference. This beer really turned out great - huge mouth feel and head - smooth as can be in it's early stage - which is testament to it's worthiness.. I really am impressed with myself.... (-; .... If you want a quick turn on a real good beer this is it. Very Session-able ASSwell.
