Of our first batch of beer, we – as a group – were most satisfied with our Pale Ale. As a result, this smooth, satisfying and hoppy brew has become our go-to beer. This incarnation, which we dubbed “Ogo Pogo Pale”, had a hoppier finish, but smoother feel than our first attempt. The differences were actually the result of the store being out of certain varieties of hops, but the result was a refreshing, satisfying brew.
