Pappys table beer. I made this for my husband who fondly recalls his MGD days. It was his dad’s beer of choice, who was bartender after retiring from 20 years service in the Navy. I used it to introduce him to the magic of a home-brewed beer.
I was experimenting with hops I had on hand at the time, mainly due to the fact that this winter did not make it easy for me to travel into the city for brew supplies. The hops are not as forward in the taste. The first few weeks on tap it smelled sweetly hoppy, I attribute to dry hopping.
