About:

My wife and her best friend LOVE this beer. I do too! I developed this recipe after sipping on a couple of the commercial examples. They have the type of malts, hops, IBU's and ABV on their website so it was pretty easy to put together. I kicked the alcohol up a little bit to bring it over 5%. Should turn out good.
