Notes:

36 days after bottling, it has been in the fridge for about a week or so and in the cellar for 4 days. It's pretty clear and spot on for colour, a dark amber with a really great and lasting head that is off-white. A whiff greets me whiff earthy, floral and spicy Spalt hop goodness along with a sweet toasty and lightly caramel maltiness. I love this beer, the bitterness is there to back up the extra malt flavour from the Melanoidin and everything intermingles extremely well. I got Hogie to try this and he seemed to enjoy it but said it was more malt forward than he is used to. I am happy he reviewed it. All in all this might be my favourite "everyday" beer I have made. Both the hop and malt flavours linger, the Melanoidin really showing through but not sticking out. Malt richness balanced by hop bitterness.
