This smelt soooo freaking good going into the fermentor, like a really subtle and smooth, but intense, cascade aroma.

Holy friggin wow! I just took a sip of this after one week lagering, and DAMN! I neven knew Saaz could taste like this! There is definitely a hint of acetaldehyde (green apple) taste, but it actually compliments the hops. Im going to let this age a little longer, but will probably bring  a taster to the next meeting.
