Anyway on to the beer.
First up is Broughton Border Gold.
I have never had a beer from this brewer before, though I have another one in my collection to try in the coming week.
It appears to be a Scottish Blonde beer.
I have to say I did enjoy it, even though blonde is not a stlye I am too excited about. It was a well balanced beer and my wife also liked it.
sight - Gold, Lager like but not very clear.
smell - Sweet, slight malt.
taste - Honey, hop aroma.
sweet - 3/5
bitter - 3/5
Next up is my last Ayinger beer the Ayinger Ur Weisse. Most of them have been wheat beers of some description. This one is a Dunkelweisse though not as dark as others of this style I have had before.
All of the Ayingers have been very carbonated and produced a massive head and this was no exception. It was a tasty beer, though not my favourite wheat beer by any means.
I would certainly drink more of it though. It was nice and spicy.
sight - Cloudy, dark amber, large fluffy white head.
smell - Typical wheat, spicy, banana.
taste - malty, slightly light in body?
sweet - 2/5
bitter - 2/5
So thats it for the beer reviews. tomorrow I start brewing another beer. This time I am brewing an IPA and again I did up the recipe myself in beer tools pro.
I am also planning a strawberry beer like Fruli for my wife and these two will be my last extract brews before going All Grain. I might get both brews done tomorrow, or I can do the second one on Monday.
