Taste Notes

This is a nice, basic beer to have around when you just want something regular. It’s also a great one to use to introduce BudMillerCoors friends to the wonderful universe of good beer!

I brewed 10 gallons of this I kegged 5 gal and bottled 5 gal and am very pleased with both it has a nice coffee flavor but not too dry for a dark beer. This truely is a Crowd Pleaser I will make again.

Crowd Pleaser of one

I brewed this one just for me, will bottle 5 gal. I had two other brews a Irish Red and an American IPA that got re-routed to a work cookout, in my only two kegs. Leaving me high and dry. I used a different ale yeast, only because it needed to be used. I hit all my brewing number and I'm confident this will be a "Me Pleaser". Sometimes it is good to have a lite beer around. Currently this brew is in the Primary. Thanks again, can't wait to try. Very nice web site and business by the way.
