I'm drinking my second sample bottle right now, and this is definitely better than the first one, which I'd opened on Saturday, May 21, one week after bottling.

This is a refreshing-tasting beer, even though I would guess that at this alcohol level it won't be very thirst-quenching on a hot day. If I focus on the alcohol flavor and swirl it around in my mouth, I can definitely pick it up, at least as an aftertaste. I would probably have guessed more like 6%, but it's definitely got more of a kick than a typical summer beer.

It's got a nice yeast character, actually more mild than I would have guessed based on the hydrometer samples I've been tasting over the last couple months, but definitely noticeable.

All in all, a tasty beer. I hope I will have the patience to let at least a dozen bottle condition for more than a month, to really get their optimal carbonation and flavor.
