Last of the extracts - found it in my beer tunnel
As you can see this is highly carbonated - I think I over-primed by about an ounce when I bottled almost 2 years ago.
the beer has aged pretty well, no signs of oxidation.
A little background on this beer.
It was a Phat tire clone recipe kit from Northern Brewer that I brewed the same night as I brewed a hefeweizen kit from them. I had two yeasts to pitch and wouldn't you know it I switched them. So I ended up with a brown hefeweizen and a lighter colored ale.
I thought I had gotten them all but this one survived my late night scroungings.
It has a fruity background, a caramel note to it and almost no hop aroma or flavor - I suppose two years of aging will do that.
