Seeley Axe White Ale - Tasting notes
Sure, it's probably young, but so far I like it.
Appearance (0-3): Pours up slightly hazy with thin, quickly fading head. 1 point
Aroma/Bouquet (0-4): A hint of spice and some hop notes. 2 points
Taste (0-10): Starts off with a hint of malt, and finishes bitter on the back of my tongue. Sorghum does have a spicy note, I've read, so it may be that. Lightly carbonated (as I expected after a week or so on CO2), medium bodied. I'm not picking up much of the spice, or orange peel. I'll check back on this regularly. It probably will be perfect a week after I drink it all. 6 points
Overall Impression (0-3): I like it. I'll probably cut back on the hops a bit, and then use grapefruit peel instead of dried orange peel. But I am brewing this again. It's a quick brew day, and the turnaround time is good, too. 2 points
Total: 11 points
If you want to try out the recipe, the only place I found that had light sorghum extract and brown rice syrup was High Gravity Homebrewing and Winemaking Supplies. I didn't want to order on ingredient from one source and another from another.
