At least, the first one I brewed. This is the year I’m working on making cream ales, so this will be the first of many reports on that process.
Nose has an element of roasted quality-something I can pick up from the malt. There is a pretty strong head on the beer, too: very clean.
But if the pour is clean-and that’s not always easy to do but when I manage it!-this is a pretty solid beer. My goal was to shoot for a lighter ale (visually), but the honey malt put a kibosh on that. Still; a solid beer that, for being 4 months old, I am proud of.
