Delicious! A bready malt character with a nice earthy hop presence. Very drinkable, everyone goes back for seconds. I highly recommend WLP090... I just brewed it with WLP001 and it's a different, read not as great, beer. Cheers!

While I really like Nottingham, I truly believe WLP090 is what helps define this beer. That said, try Notty out and let us know how it turns out!

One of the only beers I try always to have around. It's not just delicious, but quite pretty, if I do say so myself.

I'll be brewing up a 10 gallon batch of TBPA soon, subbing Willamette for the Fuggles. Anyone have any ideas on the flavor and aroma impact???

This beer is similar, but nowhere near as crisp and refreshing as the original. That CaraMunich... whoa, malty! I much prefer C60, at least for this beer. And Fuggles just work better in this beer than Willamette. Ehh...

Brewed up 10 gallons of this. LHBS didn't have C15 so I split in half C10 & C20. Was pretty efficient and hit 1.055 OG. Fermented half WLP090, and half Wyeast Pacman.

The pacman attenuated a bit more and finished out at 1.009 (6%abv), and the WLP090 finished otu at 1.011 (5.75%ish)

Ended up kegging the WLP090 and it's nearly done carbonating. Tastes awesome, similar to what I remember tasting at the club meeting. Will be bringing it next meeting!

The Pacman batch is going to be bottle conditioned, my buddy split the batch cost with me and wants to bottle it. I will see if I can snag a couple bottles for comparison. The samples i've had are way different, the pacman finishes tastes very dry.

Rad. I'll definitely be at the next meeting and would love to taste both versions side by side. I've never used Pacman but want to, and I know some people think 090 is the same strain. I've used all C10 and all C15, doesn't make a huge difference either way. To me, the domestic Fuggles and especially the 090 are what define this beer.
