Taste NotesA pleasant floral aroma with a taste that hints of stone fruit and which lingers on the palate long after the beer is drunk. This beer has a crisp clean finish with a light to medium body and is golden in colour.
Batch X - Tasted 29/01/2012 - Bloody fantastic! I like the lower bitterness, it seems to bring out more flavour and aroma somehow, perhaps this is just a great batch of hops. So, light, refreshing with stone fruit on the palate.
Batch X - Tasted 5/2/2012 - I've changed my mind a bit as the hops prevelence wanes. Now I think it is not bityter enough and too light. I am going back to 31 litres start and I will use 15 grams of bittering hops for batch Y.
Batch Y - The best so far. I now mash all my brews for 75 minutes.
