People seem to really like this beer--very easy drinking as one would expect. This past weekend I brewed a slight variation of this; with one pound of crystal 45 instead of half a pound and an ounce of Fuggles at 25 minutes instead of the dual Fuggles additions (still had the 0.5 oz NB for 60 mins).

How do you like the second version compared to the original recipe you posted?
I typically use a little bit of biscuit in my bitters but might change it up a little next time.

Ended up giving my keg of the second one away to a buddy; he's crazy about it. Guess you would expect less hop flavour/aroma without the late Fuggles addition; that's probably more on style anyway. A bit sweeter with the extra crystal 45 too. Both beers were very well received.

This particular beer was made with Wyeast 1882, but I wouldn't hesitate to use S-04 if you like dry yeast or any other British Wyeast.

Nice Animaniacs reference. They just started making a comeback on the HUB of Verizon FIOS. Pinky and the Brain are still my favorites from the series.
