Apfelbier Tasting

Very cloudy beer, even after over a month in the bottle.

Appearance: Hella cloudy. Darker shade of yellow. Fluffy persistent white head.

Aroma: Malty/grainy, cidery and a little bit spicy

Flavour: Crisp and very dry with a very slight tartness following the swallow. Hints of cinnamon and pie spices, but it's subtle rather than in your face.

Mouthfeel: Small bubbles of carbonation, thin and very dry. Slightly bitter, a bit acidic.

Overall: I think it's good. The beer is very drinkable, and I appreciate that the spice is more subtle than in your face. My only qualm is that it is really dry and doesn't have any residual sweetness. I should have added a fraction of honey malt or something to favor the cider and spice flavors.
