Man that is some foam

Yeah, foam to spare. It's tasty. Next time gotta try your Ekuanot/Citra.

Thanks. The narrow mouth really concentrates the hop aromas.

Thanks, really good hop character. It's pretty vivid.  Probably not telling you anything. Impressed with the drinkability, even in an agressively hopped beer.


Edit -  Awesome looking beer. I'm on to helles and export next.

It's an amazing thing. Once the oxidized grain bitterness is gone ( which you don't know is there, until it's gone!) it makes the beer so smooth. I have another theory about spunding with yeast under pressure that helps with this as well. It's like drinking beer flavored water. That sounds bad but it's exactly the opposite. The smoothness is un paralleled.

I've purposely tried this on malty lager, then balanced, but hoppy ale, and then on silly hopped IPA (the other extreme). I agree. IMO, FWIW, etc. Gotta see helles and export now.

Bitter - 3.5% ABV.  Unfined, I can't seem to achieve brilliance without some fining.

Which yeast did you use? I brew a lot of bitter and I find that they clear up eventually.   The dry London ESB from Lallemand was very resistant to clearing up. 

I have had some problems some of my spunded versions as well.  When I dumped the keg of it last weekend I found that it was still pouring hazy from the tap but the beer that poured out into the sink was brilliantly clear.  I think this was due to the larger amount of sediment that I got on the bottom always getting sucked up a bit when it was dispensed and clouding it up.  That one got transferred a bit early so it had a bit extra in it. 
Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.

That bitter looks good to me. A good water profile and mash pH help clarity also.

Mash pH was a bit low at 5.2, I bumped up to 5.41 in the boil kettle. 
Water profile (ppm): calcium 70, sulfate 140, chloride 50.  Magnesium and sodium < 10 ppm. 
This was a trial of Imperial Organic A09 "Pub" (equivalent of WLP002 from what I'm told).

Ultra  hops Pilsner.  4.8%, mostly Pilsner with 5% Munich. Put in spund 1 month back and it is delicious, though it doesn't want to clear up in a hurry.  Needs more time I guess.

I didn't like that first pic, how about a winter wonderland instead.
