Water was filtered with a simple activated carbon system. This seems to
make a big difference. Amateur judge commented, "Beautiful color. A bit
under carbonated. Great hop nose and finishes very clean. Good balance
with malt and hops, but lighten up on finishing hops a bit and it's
perfect. Very marketable."
