Taste Notes

After 4 days, it is good and drinkable. It quenches like water but satisfies like beer. I look forward to mowing the lawn with this is my keg. Lightly bittered, but no hop flavor. May try to increasse the Aroma steep to 3 min., but its actually quite good as-is.

Notes

A quick British Bitter made with English malt and Yeast but US Hops. This beer finishes quickly; ferment for 10 days, bottle (or keg) and its drinkable in 4 and good in 7. Low in alcohol qualifies this as a great, summer "lawnmower" beer.

Easy to drink

Just as advertised. A tasty, refreshing drink - and you can have a few with no worries. Just what I wanted for the start of summer.
