I'm really pleased with this beer. It's a little too strong for a festbier, it probably really is a Helles bock... but man, it turned out nice. Super simple recipe, really drinkable beer.

Now that carb has really hit its own, that sweet note is gone. Malty, but not sweet. And the prettiest foam you'd ever want to see. Tiny, creamy bubbles - so much for that not being possible with table sugar (which I never bought into, anyway).

I fully expect for Rob to hand me my butt in the brew off, but I ought to pull a respectable score for this beer, anyway.
