Tasting Notes
See below.
This beer is the result of months of research into historical brewing techniques, focusing on England in the 16th century.

Due to the inextricable brewing link between England and the Low Countries before 1700, the beers of Haarlem, Delft, Amsterdam and other cities became interesting, too. Their impact on the English brewing scene can't be ignored.

This beer is part of an article on prototypical hopped beers of the early 16th century which will hopefully appear soon in one of the glossy brew rags. ;)

Notes:

Use malts with darker-than-normal color to more closely approximate historical malt.

Use any relatively rough, low-alpha hops variety in one addition or as FWH.

I really, really like Wyeast Belgian Ardennes for this one, though S-04 runs a very close second.

It's merely a darker Pale Ale malt. There are two main manufacturers of Mild malt: Briess and Pauls. If your local store carries Briess products - and most in NA do - ask them to order Briess Ashburne Mild malt for you.

Alternately, Maris Otter works quite well. :)

Good luck! If you brew it, please let me know how it turns out for you.

Had my eye on this one for awhile, Bob, thanks so much for posting it. Think I'll give it a go on Sunday. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Ha, just checked my logs and I've done 30 brews in 2010 so far, with more than half being historical recreations from England or Scotland. I've been meaning to branch out eventually, so this one will be a baby step, just a short hop over to the continent to see how it works out.

Please do let me know how it works for you. I need to brew another batch, as the last batch just kicked. :( Maybe this next batch, I'll remember to take pictures of the finished product...
