I recently brewed biermunchers centennial blonde and am now bottling orfys mild mannered ale.
I have noticed a similar taste to both. They both taste like toasted cake. Like if you eat the remains off a white cake after it comes out of the pan. I assume it is coming from the grain, but both recipes are different so I am surprised to find the same taste in both. I assumed it was coming through in the centennial blonde because it was such a light ale. It is not a bad flavor, just surprising to find it in both beers.
I used nottingham in both, but have used it before and not tasted this in a ny other beer.
Any one have any thoughts or notice this?
