So It's April. This beer was rowdy all February and March. Hot, alcoholic, too sweet, then acrid tasting. It was also brown trub color with a dirty yellow snow colored head.
*A MONTH LATER it tastes fantastic. The Northern Brewer hops sparkle and shine. It tastes balanced and makes you want to drink more and more. It has also turned a bright ruby red color, crystal clear in the glass with a nice white head.
I said for a month that I was going to dump it. That I would never brew with french kiln coffee again, that I would never again use this WLP004. I was wrong.
