I had homebrew club last night.
I brought and IPA and an American Brown. And for the first time, I got good reviews!
My IPA was a nice hoppy IPA, that has stood the test of time pretty well, it has a nice hoppy nose, with a little hint of caramel. The body of the beer is good, and the hop flavor is nice and strong. And the swallow and aftertaste leaves hops on your palate exactly the way I wanted it to.
My Brown Ale went over well too. Despite a small lactobacillus infection.
It tasted great and I had a couple return visits to that bottle. So i'll have to put that on the brew again list.
All in all, I was pretty pleased with the meeting. After going to meetings for year, and constantly having things wrong with my beer, it's nice to know that I learned the lessons I had to learn to make good beer. Only one problem.
Now that I've made good beer, I need to make great beer.
