Comments: Overall comments - AHS makes good beer recipes. We liked the beer; it is a nice refreshing summer beer that I think would go well with a spicy dish. You taste the peach a lot in the first sip of the beer, and then the ginger & acid malt gets you on the subsequent tastes.  The peach definitely came through in the aroma. This batch was not as watery as our first batch.
Personal Ratings: Karari: 39.5/50, Andy: 39.5/50
