That beer looks very good. I like the spillage. Looks like you’re at the ball park.

LOL.  I want to get some head on the beer prior to snapping a pic and I often overfill the glass resulting in spillage.  I think there should be a minor league baseball team called the "Tuscaloosa Spillage"  :D  Cheers Tommymorris.

The Quad is mostly clear now.  It took a few days and a few pours and it tastes great.

I am almost afraid to ask, but what are the specs on that beer? I am guessing it’s not for lightweights like myself.

Traditional mead made with goldenrod honey.



Really nice clarity. What character does the Goldenrod contribute? I don't think I've ever had that one.

It's a 10 percenter.  that is why I am enjoying it in a small glass.  It is sneaky and as the BJCP Guidelines call the style "dangerous".  OG is 22 degrees Plato (1.092), FG: 4.7 degrees Plato (1.018).

I love a good Quad! I'll be brewing one soon.

Thanks!

I originally bought the goldenrod honey because it was described as having a butterscotch flavor.  I was able to taste that a little bit in the honey (probably just because I was looking for it based on the description) but not really in the mead.  I get a sweet fruity and floral flavor from the honey.  There's a hint of the earthy barnyard aroma and flavor you typically get from buckwheat honey.  And there's also a bit of an herbal flavor.  I have to say that this is one of my favorite traditionals that I've done.

Here’s my Golden Ale. (Golden Promise, Wheat Malt, C40. 24 IBU(s) Apollo in the boil and 2 oz in the whirlpool.) I tried Cellar Science English yeast but didn’t get much response as quickly as I thought an English Ale yeast should take off so added Nottingham which took off like a rocket ship to get the job done.




*Disclaimer*: Any comment I add is simply the way I brew beer. There are certainly other ways that can be equally effective which other brewers may contribute. This is what I’ve found that works for me using my equipment and processes so I offer this for your consideration. YMMV

Looks tasty. I here Flamingos are sneaky beer drinkers. Be on guard.

I wondered why my glass is empty so fast. Must be the flamingos.
