June Pale

Pale gone Amber, in glass on my desk

I know it doesn’t look like a pale. I blame the Light malt extract, instead of the extra light.

That’s OK! It’s just color and a little more caramel in the middle of the beer. I ain’t mad about it. I’m a little less enamored with my efforts to get some homes in the nose. I would’ve thought that a 1.5 ounces with five minutes left in the boil would do the trick. I may need to ask some people about that one, because while this beer isn’t bad it doesn’t have some of the sensory qualities I associate with a pale.
