What beer style is this beer?
« on: April 25, 2012, 11:13:24 AM »
I just brewed my fourth batch from my own recipe and would like to know what beer style or category it falls under.  Here are the details of the brew:

7lbs Pale Malt US 2 row
1lb Flaked Corn
1lb Honey Malt
8oz Biscuit malt
8oz Cara-Pils
8oz Flaked Wheat
9.6 oz corn sugar (after boil)
1 Whilfloc (15 min)
1 oz East Kent Goldings (60 min)
.5 oz Willamette (30min)
.5 oz Willamette (5min)
Nottiongham Dry Ale Yeast (re-hydrated before pitch @ 76*)

60 minute mash @ 149*
10 mashout @ 168*

6.5 Gallon boil
5 Gallon in primary (11 days primary -- racked into secondary)

OG  1.059
Gravity after primary 1.009

Sample taste before secondary: similar to a Molson Triple X with more complex flavors, fairly smooth yet with a slight note of alcohol.  Pleasant hop aroma and mild bitterness.  Pretty much what I was going for except the ABV was 1 point higher (expected 6.2%, yet calculations put it at 7.2%).

Will bottle with priming sugar.

After researching styles of beer I cannot find one suitable for this.

I'm not a beer judge or a style expert, but that sounds like a Moobesor Extra Special American Ale. Send me a few bottles and I'll evaluate it further.

Looks to me like a classic Moobesorbrew to me.
