Head in the bottle?

5 posts in this topic

I'm drinking, on my front stoop, a bottle of Gagfel Kölsch . No glass, just from the bottle. And it has a perfect head! Never noticed that before with any beer still in the bottle.

Anyone else ever see this? Or have I just been oblivious until now?

I have noticed this in many bottle conditioned beers . I am not sure if your Gagfel Kölsch is bottle conditioned though.

Btw, correcting my typo: it's Gaffel Kölsch. And the head remained through most of my slow consumption.

GFW: gee, the water from my tap doesn't form a head...it just boils away!

I've seen and experienced it. Not sure I care for head in the bottle as you really don't get to appreciate the aroma that much. IMO it's usually a result of a combination of overcarbonation, poor handling and improperly chilled beer.
