This beer came in at a light 4.5%.  Very drinkable, clean taste, refreshing.  Very little hop or malt flavor.  Body is light.  

All BMCers I have served this to love it, even the ladies who don't really enjoy beer.  I wouldn't call this a BMC beer, but it is close.  With the light brown color, it doesn't look like a BMC.

I could see adding 15% to the grain bill, 50% to the hop bill, and reducing the volume from 12 to 10 gals to produce a 6% "Bigger" version this recipe.

Yummy stuff!

In case any of you notice, the majority of recipes I'll be posting this summer will be fairly light, to accommodate the summer guests.  I will end up making bigger versions of these recipes come this fall.
