Probably not the favorite variety on homebrew sites, but i've been particularly enjoying the likes of Tetley's Smooth Flow, John Smiths Extra Smooth, Wexford Irish Cream Ale and Old Speckled Hen. The "Nitro" 16 oz'ers.
For my second batch, i purchased an extract recipe from a LHBS. it's a Cream Ale sitting in Primary going on Wk 3. Not know what this will taste like for another 3 weeks, i wanted to make something in the lines of the brews mentioned above. Since i particularly enjoy the low carbon/ silky texture of these beers (not to mention, low ABV/session), i was wondering if this trait can be accomplished without the use of nitrogen?
And if anyone has any recommendations, i'd love to brew one of these smooth flow types with hints of vanilla. i've only come across speckled hen clones, so i guess that's a start (for an extract recipe). If anyone has any input to my goal, any help is appreciated. until then, i'll scour the internets and see what ingrediants i can decipher for my swill.
