This is a very simple brew but tastes great - I've gotten lots of compliments on this one. It's a pretty straightforward "American Amber" and is a good showcase for the Cascade hops.
BTW, SafAle S-05 works fine in lieu of Notty if you're not a fan.
Since there's no dry hopping, this one is relatively quick as well!
(for extract version lose the two row and add another pound of DME, steep crystal grains at 160 F for 30 minutes)
