Shortly before leaving Europa I was able to sample all three of the
beers I brewed while there. Now I’m not one to brag but all of them
were awesome. The Irish red ale was a rich bouquet of malt and
raisin/prune notes. It was the kind of beer that really sticks to your
ribs (excellent for breakfast I might add). The Oktoberfestbier was
dry yet malty with a bold toasty biscuit flavor, just as it should be.
The American IPA was HUGE! It packed a whollop of malt quickly
balanced by firm bitterness and an explosion of hop aroma. I’ve never
brewed an IPA this extreme before, I surprised even myself.
