Default SUCCESS!!! --Whoohoo!!

I brewed the Northern Brewer "Caribou Slobber" just a few days behind our fellow poster "numpty".
I cracked one open last Thursday to test fermentation and beginning flavor and was very happy to see it developing fine.
I placed one in the refrigerator this morning and just drank it.
WOW - amazing to see how the flavor has developed in only 3 days. This is going to be a good beer!...don't know if numpty agrees, but this beer taste a lot like New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale....which is a good thing.


P.S.>>> I am also currently enjoying my own 1 beer buzz right now...I created my own buzz!!!!

The Nose:...caramel, floral with a medium hop smell.
Taste - first thing that hits my mouth is a smooth/sweet caramel flavor, followed by a refreshing citrus/fruity hop flavor - but not too hoppy. The malt/caramel is more prominent than the hop - however it is important to note I cut back on the 3 hops that this kit came with. I cut back about 25% of each hop (I am not a hoppy beer fan).
I measured the ABV at 5.3%

It is, also my brother and two nephews (both of age) are coming down from Chicago next weekend. Going to be great to sit around after a cook out while everyone is drinking MY beer!
Can't wait.

CONGRATS!!!

Welcome to the slippery slope. All it takes is that first taste to realize, "Aw, chit - I can make good beer!" and you're done...... will have multiple brews going, at once, in no time.
