the gift of beer....

I have very limited experience tasting home made beer that I didn't make, so it was nice to receive a twelve pack of home brew from my brother-in-law.  He sent me three different kinds, one of which (edit: [I thought])was my Festivus Holiday Beer recipe....

Like a kid at Christmas, I poured [what I thought was] the holiday beer [but actually was a brown ale] into my only tulip glass and enjoyed every drop.  His seemed drier (and likely more ABV) than my first attempt, but lacking any data and relying on my faulty memory, it is hard to tell or remember.  I did enjoy it, it will be extremely difficult to let the remaining bottles age.

Everything is explained now that I know that the brown ale wasn't my beer...I do love brown ale, so it was easy to pretend it was some other brown malty beer I love.
