The First Tasting (No Comments)

Cindy and I had the first taste of our two new lagers this weekend.

The Munich Style Lager was excellent. The maltiness was just right, but it could probably have a slightly hoppier nose. It has very few esthery flavors from the yeast and a light mouthfeel. Definitely a successful first attempt at a lager.

The Schwarzbier was also good, but could probably use another week or two in the bottle to complete its carbonation. It had a nice roastiness and few esthers, but the mouthfeel was a little thick for a black lager. It will be better in a week or two, but on our next attempt I will probably try to make the beer thinner without affecting the color or flavor.
