feeling it my duty to taste test my beer at all phases, i popped the top on one of my bottles from my first batch today. 1 week in the bottles...

John Bull American Beer, extract kit...

Taste: semi sweet and slighty cidery..., i think this is gonna be a very good beer for my first attempt...

Looks: the picture speaks for itself. i did pour it aggressively to get the head, but all is good and moving forward. next taste test, next weekend...

I think you'll be surprised after you give it another week or two - It changes dramatically.

That's good carbonation for only one week.

Like Mysterio said, it's gonna taste much better in about 2 weeks and even better in a couple of months.

ok here is the pic of my first brew.. Looks terrible compared to your pic.



That was april 2005.

I havent taken any pictures of anything but my terrible red that is still not drinkable, due to 4oz of hops. (the red was october 2005)


I will make sure to post pics of my most recent one when its ready.

Since your red is overhopped I would blend it with a sweet beer to balance them both.
