I just tried one of each this weekend. They still need some more time to carb up a little more and there isn't much head yet. But they both taste really good. I don't have a great palate and have difficulty decerning between different hop tastes but you can taste a difference. The local hops are a little hoppier and more bitter. You can tell the difference. The local hops are grown in a town called Bosque Farms, NM. (BTW, the Spanish pronouciation is "Bows-kay" and it means the forest of trees along a river). The farm is just oustide the bosque along the Rio Grande. I will name the new recipe Bosque Amber.

This is planned for one of my upcoming brewdays, for a summer beer for non-craft beer drinkers that may come to visit.

Just placed an ingredient order for this recipe. Midwest was out of stock on the liberty, so I substituted Mt. Hood. I'm using Caramel 60L instead of Crystal 60L since that's what I have on hand. Also, i'm pitching this onto a 1056 yeast cake from a previous batch. I'll post back in a month or so

This beer is great! For me it starts like Sam Adams... crisp with the hops and all that. But it finishes with that roasty/biscuit-y taste that Fat Tire has.

Great all around. Probably will put this in my usual rotation.

Thanks Yooper!

Srceenplay,

Looks good to me.

I'm sitting here drinking one of these as I type. Brewing a 10gal version Monday. Along with my Pale Ale, it's become one of the house brews.

Great beer. One of my favorite recipes, along with BierMuncher's Centennial Blonde.

Scott
