This one is one of my better beers, and qualified for MCAB. It is an assertively bittered, refreshing, very clear, very clean beer. It has a wonderful aroma. I love it. It is, however, a little light in body. I undershot my sacc. temp a bit, I was shooting for 156. I also lost some wort and had to top off with boiled water. It is also lacking the creaminess that is expected in the style. I was kinda at the limit in terms of how much corn to use. When I redo the recipe, I'll probably cut that back to 20% or so.
