Description
An ESB I made for New Year's Eve, 2006. It's one of the best beers I made while living in Troy.

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes OK, for some reason the calculator is putting the IBUs at 87, which is not nearly correct. Beersmith calculates 47. The beer had been in bottles for three weeks when we drank it at the part, and it was definitely not 87 IBU.
Awards Everyone at the New Year's Eve party loved it, so that's enough for me.
