Thanks for the compliment!

Well, I did a terrrrrrrrible job of keeping track of who sent me what. (Read: I have no idea anymore.)

But I had a pale ale last night that just had a silver cap with "pale" written in green on the top.
It was great. REALLY nice hop aroma, perfect carbonation, great flavor. It had a little bit of bitter aftertaste (like a light IPA), but
I had it with BBQ ribs and the food wiped the bitterness and I really enjoyed the beer. I'd buy this if I could. Whoever made it, really nice job.

That was mine. Thanks! I have been feeling quilty as some of the test bottles of the others I sent folks seemed a bit over carbed. It was my first use of the beer gun so..

The Pale that you drank is actually a variation on the Northern Brewer 1911 Export ale recipe that they had for a special yeast a few years ago. It was an English Pale with a large long dry hop. I subbed in my home grown cascades for the dry hop and was pretty happy with the results.

I owe everyone reviews of their beers. Many slips of paper in my backpack waiting to be transcribed to the computer...

I figured it's close enough...

Broke open another one of the brews; one of the ones that was swapped to me. Unfortunately I didn't keep anything resembling records, so I've no idea. "12-12-12" was written in Sharpie on the silver cap, if that rings a bell.

First off, surprisingly carbed still. I figured after two years a lot would have died off, but no.

The taste is also quite smooth, and basically what I remember last year. Deep, earthy, raisiny, and a little oxidized. UPDATE: After letting it warm up, there's HUGE chocolate. It's awesome stuff.

All in all great, and nice to remember it again!

I know... it was brewed in 2011 though. I thought maybe whoever had marked their bottle like that would remember.

Was it in a Sierra Nevada bottle? I think that's mine. I think I last tried one a few months ago. It's amazing how well it stands up over time.

The club my fiend attends is doing Wee Heavy for their fall comp this year and I'm going to submit it. Can't wait to see what they think after almost 4 years.
