So, after that last cream ale, I thought I’d try it again, but without the crazy alcohol.
That same flavor comes in at the very finish of the beer, a late guest to a party that just ended.
It’s a bummer, because I really tried to get this one right, after such a simple mistake.
Because it’s fairly clear, and pretty crisp. The malt does appear but it’s not overwhelming by any means and the ABV is far, far closer to what it should be, as opposed to my last effort.
However, it doesn’t quite finish clean and that throws it off. It’s not undrinkable. but I’d have difficulty promoting it to someone else.
