Irish Jiggin' Bitter

Recipe added: 10/29/00

I finally have an easy drinking ale back in the house. This turned out to be a nice ale. Not real strong, so it is a real session beer. I find that the bitterness is pleasing, the head retention is great, and the golding hops add an interesting slickness to the mouthfee. A simple, tasty recipe.
