Every April-May I make a Summer Ale, modeled loosely on Anchor Steam. This year I decided to amp it up a little, with a littlemore malt, tad of roasted malt, and using columbus instead of northern brewer. changed the character of the whole thing. will be a good winter beer if theres any left. good blance of malts, alcohol warming (7.5 abv) & hop tang.
