This fest beer, historically brewed in spring and aged in cold caves over the summer, is a copper-colored Lager with an emphasis on that German malt flavor. Our recipe achieves that malt flavor with lots of Pilsner malt extract. The use of Caravienne and Caramunich malts contribute the copper color and a unique, subdued toffee/malt flavor. First-addition hops are Hallertauer, while finishing-hops are Czech Saaz. To make this as an Ale use the WLP011 European option below. The Ale yeast works because it has a subdued fruitiness and intense maltiness.
