First beer - first impressions

For those awaiting the results of my first homebrew, the Big Sky Amber Ale (thank you Weekend Brewer) it made the debut tasting at a holiday party this weekend to rave reviews by the partakers.  The tasters were being charitable considering this was my first attempt: “wow, it doesn’t make me want to throw up!”  In all fairness, the beer is a bit young at only one week in the bottle.  Over the next few weeks the taste should improve and the hoppy-ness should mellow. 


If you are considering brewing, I strongly encourage you to jump right in.  The process is fairly straightforward and the satisfaction of brewing your own beverage is quite rewarding.
