Ethan's first commercial brew. Made and sold prior to his 21st birthday, pretty cool to brew and release a beer before you can legally drink one.

Poured from the plastic tap of a Mr. Beer keg.

Brewed in a Mr. Beer vessel not according to instructions. Kicked up, and dry hopped.

A: Pours a nice rich deep amber hue, almost brown. A few bubbles, some hop particulate.... no retention or head.

S: Hops galore. American C hops, lots of citrus with a bold earthy greenness.

T: Hoppy for sure. Mild malt sweetness but mostly earthy green hops. Mild citric tones as well.

M: Rather light in carbonation (from the vessel duh) with a nice hoppy finish.

D: Actually pretty good. Who knew if you used a breweries worth of supplies on a Mr. Beer kit you can actually make it taste pretty good?

Hmmm, a beer brewed in Cigar City, using a Mr. Beer kit. Oh, and Ethan's first. Let's see...I guess I can thank Gary for going over to the brewery side, and filling a tasting glass.

A: Brown, no head or retention.

A: Hops and syrup.

T: Hops and syrup, with malt extract.

M: Medium body with no carbonation.

D and overall impression: Drinkability is huge for a brew made with a Mr. Beer kit. Overall, solid first try buddy. Lets try it on the new small batch system next time. Skal.
