b[rew]log #5: The Sweet Taste of Victory

Homebrew!A few days ahead of schedule, I decided to sample my first brew. Here’s the good news: it’s beer!

As I poured, I noticed it has a notable honey aroma (when I drink the last Hopslam I have, I’ll compare the strength of the aroma). It tastes like beer, except the bad news is, it is too sweet. I had a Bell’s Amber prior to this just so I was familiar with the amber taste, and it’s definitely there in my beer, just with a strong hand of honey as well. The honey must not have fermented out entirely, so it’s got a notable honey taste. So it’s sweet, with a fairly low ABV (3.2%), which makes it easy to drink, which is a good thing I guess.

Kudos to beer! Now I can finally RDWHAHB.
