Mine rocks! The pepper is very subtle and accentuates the malt. I honestly believe it is the best beer I have ever made.I'll

Unfortunately, Sheen, I sent all of it off to NHRHBC and the Dixie Cup. I got the New Hampshire scores back and got 35 out of 50. My best scores ever. Both judges said it was to hoppy. Well whaddaya expect? It's a Jamil recipe!
I entered it as an amber in New Hampshire. I entered it in two categories in the Dixie cup: Amber Ale and Spice beer. I'm betting my scores are crappy in the spice ale since the pepper is very subtle. Hopefully I will get those scores back soon.
I am brewing it again for Nationals. I'll make sure to spare you a couple of bottles.
