Tasting Notes: The beer is a little bit sweet due to crystal malt, nice hoppy flavour.
This recipe was originally taken from John Palmer's book "How To Brew", but I made some minor changes (or accidently made some..hehe.. hence;Rev.1). It has some mild sweetness coming from the crystal malt and a nice hoppy flavour. It's hard to describe in words.. Basically, I prefer this beer just lightly carbonated and served not too cold (~8C).
I also accidently forgot to take hydrometer reading throughout the brewing process, however Beertools gave me an approximation of 7% alcohol.
