I floated this recipe out there on the board prior to brewing. I was looking for something light (around 3.5%) and zesty with a fuller flavor. A few go-rounds and some advice from David_42 to add some Rye Malt, and Sterling Gold
I may be guilty of posting too many recipes, but none is ever posted until theyíre brewed and reviewed by my drinking partners. (Believe me, there are a lot more recipes that didnít make it to the database).
This is a quick beer (easily from grain to glass in 2-3 weeks if youíre kegging). It will probably replace my Centennial Blonde as a year-round house beer. This beer is light, very crisp an flavorful. There is a nice "bite" to the beer that is very clean...not spicy. The Rye malt really ads a nice dimension. The orange bitter is not noticeable at all and the coriander lies just underneath enough to hint at a wit style beer. It seems that all of the additives just seem to balance out and add a nice dimension, and not an obvious flavor to the beer.
This was my first experience wit Sterling hops and I'm sold. Clean. Crisp. Slight floral aroma. Very subdued, but flavorful. These could easily be used to replace any of the noble hops that are in short supply right now.
I attenuated a bit more than planned so ended up with a 3.6% beer.
This one is definitely a do-over. High in flavor, crisp and clean, low in alcohol and a nice session beer for the warmer months that lay ahead.
