Sample malty sweetness. no apparent fusel alcohol. mild bitter

Final Brix after fermentation 8 brix
FG 1.016

6/14 yanked the drop hops. Massively to much dry hop. Beer thick slurry.

6/16 Beer cleared a lot. Low head, low CO2. Spicy, floral aroma and taste. Alcohol balanced with bitter and sweet. Bitter mild. Sweet finish.
6/18 Cleared a bit more. Still low on CO2. Not enough head. Really like this one. Is a bit sweet. Medium body. Not filling. Hops balance bitter with spicy notes.
