Oh, and some in a glass of course!

The White Ale tastes fantastic – very much like Hitachino’s own White Ale. The IPA – I’d say it’s more like a strong pale ale or a British style IPA, but still very drinkable.

Of course none of these came out with the funky aftertaste of the beers I’ve made at home – hopefully which I’ll now be rid of after making the fermentation temperate. And the orange and coriander of the white ale is perfectly balanced, unlike that of my later Orange Wheat! Just shows the difference when you work with professionals, use professional equipment, and follow their methods.
