The title is misleading: this golden ale came out great! But I can’t pass up a chance to reference the Posies when I get one.
There’s not much more to say here: It was a success, tasted good and had a great look to it. Funny story: while I was cooling this beer, I had to stick my hand in the wort when it was about 80 degrees in order to retrieve a thermometer. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen to this beer since I had to stick my filthy claw into it. I’ve actually called this beer Golden Claw in my notes. Gives it that ‘Sinister Organization out to Kill James Bond’ feel.
