I finally brewed this recipe on May 3rd 2008. I had to use Golden Promise for the base malt as I didn't have any Marris Otter. Next time I'll try using the Marris Otter. The beer came out great and i'm enjoying one now. I'll be brewing this one again real soon as it is a wonderful flavourful beer that is very easy drinking. With the low alcohol rating, it is a perfect beer for he hot summer months where you want to sit around with your friends and have a few pints, without getting all liquered up! It is now one of my house beers and is all about the flavour! Enjoy! (_)3
