This turned out to be a very pleasant ale. The toasted/caramel and malt flavors were very nicely balanced with the hop bitterness and flavor. This was my first brew with IBU over 30. I am really starting to appreciate hops. Actually, I am really starting to appreciate a good balance.

This was my 1st all-grain batch, and I am pleased. My other all-grain is a Northern English Brown Ale. I would like your thoughts on any changes to this recipe. I've only used 4 malts so far in my all-grain batches: Maris Otter, 2 row pale, crystal 40L, chocolate.
