This hobby could be very, very bad for me.
I tapped the Fork and Hay Geordie Ale this afternoon. It is still not quite fully carbonated, and I think it could still use a little aging, but...
...it's really good, in my humble opinion.
I will have to do a double blind test with actual Newcastle to be sure, but I think the flavor is pretty close. I couldn't be happier with how this is turning out.
