To tell you the truth, I've never tasted a brew at any stage I've not liked. My first reaction to tasting the wort is that it didn't taste as sweet as my other brews. This is the first time I've uses Golden Syrup (Invert sugar). I normaly stick to all malt. But It's also the first time I've used a hop as high in Alpha Acids as the Northern Brewer.

I have High hopes.
