Brewed 3/24/2012 - Single Infusion mash at 154. Measured original gravity was 1.055. Measured final gravity was 1.015. This wasn't quite as malty as I would have liked. It was a little thin for some reason. I might try adding a little more malt or maybe even mashing a bit higher. I thought the hop bitterness was well balanced for how thin this was. It was very sessionable and a great after work brew. The keg did go fast.

ctorxI had the pleasure of tasting this brew a few times and I have to say it is the best Pale Ale I have ever had. Not only did this beer have a delightful aroma, it tasted amazing and was near perfection.

HaybrewsI'm surprised SingleSpeed thinks this tastes thin. It resembles my Winter Gold, which I believe is an extremely tastey Pale Ale. I like the Victory Malt addition to produce a reddish-orange color and, I would guess, a fuller flavor. Excellent hop schedule too (mine is Simcoe and Cascade).

SingleSpeedYea, not sure what happened. I wonder if my mash temp was lower than 154. I guess I will just have to brew it again.
