6.6.2010 – FG 1.0134; ABV 5.1; AA: 73.5

after several weeks in bottle I find this disappointing. I think the Munich was a mistake, the malt profile is too pronounced. The beer has too much yeast in it, i sucked too much yeast into bottle bucket on accident. The hop character is not ‘crisp’. It is not terrible or anything, just not what I had hoped for. The Pale Ale at https://brewlogblog.wordpress.com/2010/05/14/brew-log-5-14-10-american-pale-ale/ is better.
