I'm not actively blogging here anymore. But if you got here because you were searching for something about bikes, you might want to check out my latest project, Vermont Goldsprints. In summer of 2014, I bought a used goldsprints racing setup and have made it a mission to get more bikes in more people's faces by putting on fun races in unexpected places. Come join me!
Brewing Journal, Batch #5 Tasting Notes
Tasted Batch #5, Scottish 80 shilling. Nice, deep almost ruby copper color, lots of malt without being too cloyingly sweet, just a little Fuggles hops bitter at the end as the light carbonation tickles your tongue. Little bit of butterscotch in the aftertaste. Served at 44 degrees. If it would go fast enough, it would be fun to serve as a cask ale, letting it oxidize a little bit over a few days, but it doesn't get consumed that fast here and will remain on the gas at 12 psi and in the fridge.
