Beer Style: Standard American Lager  (1B)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

Standard American Lager


It's a red honey amber which is strong, I usually use California yeast and it taste great, but decided to use Irish yeast to see what it would do, this made the difference I was looking for. I've been told it taste like Molson XXX from Canada, but to me it's close to Smithwick's.
