Damn you, ever-changing ale!

The budget ale I last wrote of is toying with my emotions. After sitting in my room for over a month, the flavor profile has changed yet again. The honey malt is definately there. The hops, luckily, have been toned down a bit. Don't get me wrong, I love hops, but they seemed to be too much for the malt profile of this one. Not so, it seems. I was just getting ready to dump it, too. Maybe not.

This is learning. This is also great. If this turns out to be even the tiniest bit drinkable, I may not have to buy any beer for the week! Although, I like to experiment and may have to pick up something new anyways. I say "if" because I am currently drinking it at room temperature, which is probably somewhere around 70 degrees. I put one in the fridge, so when I get home from work tonight, we'll see how things go.

Cheers, and happy brewing!
