I would echo the above statement exactly!
The first time I did this, I used the Notty and it was pretty good, but not super amazing. Very basic, light-ish beer that seemed to have universal appeal. Nice enough that I would do it again.
I did another 5g batch of this for a corn harvest and tamale assembly party at a friends family's ranch this last weekend. This was the first time I ever used US-05 and it came out fabulously. The hop character was more pronounced but still very smooth, the flavors fill the mouth but do not linger and the finish is dry and clean. Defiantly makes you want to go for another one.
There was a cooler full of Victoria, Corona and Bohemia that was getting some attention, but once I got the keg set up his family slammed down about 3 gallons in the next hour. We were pushing foam and on to the tequila before the end of the night
They sent me home with a mountain of tamales, so I have absolutely nothing to complain about
My complements to BierMuncher on this one! Its going to be hard to follow up on this one next year!
