Tired dog and a homebrew

on

I enjoyed the first of my batch of the White House Honey Ale (recipe posted here) last night after a run with Attila. While I assume he was sad that he wasn’t allowed a mug of his own, he seemed satisfied to simply bask in the warmth of the fire.

For being a brew that’s only been in bottles for a few weeks, the beer was nicely balanced, with a nice light-brown hue, and pleasant malty flavor to balance the lingering sweetness of the honey. There were minimal hop-notes detectable to both the nose and the palate, but I’m hoping that a few more weeks in bottles will age out some more of the sweetness, and bring the savory notes forward.tilla and whha

      Awww thanks. He’s an English Springer Spaniel, who’s badly in need of a haircut.
