I have it in a keg but it's sitting at garage temps (60F) with very low carbonation (maybe 1.25 volumes) because I have to wait for one of my five kegs to kick. I sampled it last night and it's going to go pretty fast this summer....er June.

As much as I like variety, I keep going back to my American Blonde and IPAs for my during and after dinner beer. I think this bitter (technically based on the low SRM it's a Summer Best Bitter) is going to replace the blonde in about 2 more pints.

I was right. The blonde kicked last week so I got the bitter in the kegger and it's finally carbed and clear this weekend. Wow, great beer. I'm probably going to brew this one again in the fall now that I have the EKG to spare.

I think EKG is a pretty good sub for Fuggle. In fact, I only used the fuggle because they were getting a bit old and wanted to use them up.

For a slight variation on this, I'm thinking of either replacing the 40L with 80L or Adding 4 ounces of 120L for some color and complexity.
