named the Jean Genie because i'm a massive bowie fan and was listening to an album while brewing this (so thought why not?!). it was made with english/european malts, and american hops; so i named it a song from his american-esque album aladdin sane. it's a very drinkable beer at 9% it flattened me after 2 as you forget how much alcohol you're drinking. you can't tell even though the mouthfeel is nice and full. currently drinking this only after 3 weeks in the bottle and i'm in love. only change i'd make would be to dry hop it slightly.

excuse the horrible photo. i'll try and take more if anyone cares.
