Beer Style: American Pale Ale  (10A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

American Pale Ale


I just got done tasting My concoction of Bill Pemberton's Too Sweet Ale and let me tell you, my batch came out perfect! This is the batch of beer I brewed that had white spots at the top. Be aware of the judging, I am not a judge, I just judged it based on my experiences of tasting English Brown Ales.
