The beer that was brewed was called Brew Your Own Bender by NorthernBrewer. It was an episode to highlight Bender beer and the fact that NorthernBrewer has a clone recipe. Whatever. I don't watch the episodes for the highlighted products, just for the knowledge and wisdom that is shared.
Michael filled two pitchers. One pitcher containing the mini mashed beer and the other containing the AG version. The first sample given was from the mini mash (although we the camera viewers and his test subjects did not know because the pitchers were not labeled). The second pitcher contained the AG. The reviews were CLOSE. The first sample tasted amazing and almost spot on to the Original. The second sample was said to have been just a bit better than the first. Bottom line was, both batches were parallel with tasting notes.
