I had this beer
a while back at Birreria. It was somewhat simple and subtle with just a hint of thyme on the nose and not much flavor.
I doubt I'll be able to find a "clone" recipe for this beer without contacting the brewmaster there, so I figured I'd try to construct my own recipe for a Thyme Pale Ale.
What hops do you think would compliment the thyme? I was considering Nugget for its herbal qualities, and maybe some Chinook, or something piney and woody?
Would you incorporate other spices or additions (lemon comes to mind), or just focus on the thyme component first?
Never worked with any green herbs in a beer before. Would I 'DRY 'HERB' this beer??? Any tips, suggestions, pitfalls, caveats, experiences, hallucinations, warnings, recommendations?
