Taste Notes

Excellent tasting beer. Has a slight roasted malt flavor with a good mouth feel. Perfect clear reddish color and pours a foamy white head for a while, holding a light (ale style) skimcoat on top until bottom of the pint mug. This was a crowd favorite, keg went very fast once tapped. Many requests to make more. This is a winner!


2 row base Malta for all beers. Cara-pils significantly increases head/foam retention. Caraaroma adds strong caramel flavor, red color, and malty aroma. Aromatic malt adds very strong malt flavor and aroma to your beer Used 3 stage fermentation with 1 tsp gelatin to enhance clarification prior to keg/bottling. 8 Pints (~ 1 gallon) bottled with 0.86gms corn surgar; 4 gallons kegged (14.5psi) for initial keg conditioning at 74F for 7 days.
