Honey Dust Graffiti

I have been considering pushing more malt in my beer as of late and this would be the first to show that effort. It’s clearly a sweeter ale: maybe you could call it an amber-the C120 malt gave it enough color, that’s for sure- but I think it might have a life of its own. The honey malt has something to do with it, I think but there’s also just a restrained hop presence and a nice finish to this beer. The nose isn’t too potent with a hint of grass, I think but nothing to indicate a strong hop presence. The beer itself isn’t too caramel focused and it finishes pretty cleanly, so I think I’ll have another.
