Taste Notes

Post Boil wort sweet and very bitter. At end of primary fermentation bitterness was good, beer somewhat fruity. Definitely green. Gravity at end of primary fermentation about 1.008. Taste at bottling good. Bitterness similar to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. After a week in bottle it is very drinkable, clear, with good carbonation.

Notes

This batch was a first attempt at all-grain brewing. Looking for an American Pale Ale, but with a bit more color and malt.
