Mini-mash dry DME with dry yeast. Brewed Jan 21st and spent 2 weeks in primary, no secondary. Tasting several bottles each week since. Flavor has improved with age. Very pale gold, smooth, hops resent laid back profile. Exhibited an odd "bite" early on that I hoped would condition out with time. Bite isn't totally undesirable but was not expected from the grain/hop bill. Appears to be grain related not hops, but hasn't mellowed out to comfort yet. Stove-top brewing makes me wonder if temps were too high during mash and extracted unwanted tannins? Brewed Texas Bock shortly after - same ingredients with color additive and minus Vienna base grains. The Bock doesn't possess the same bite, possibly the Vienna? It's pleasant, smooth, refreshing at the end of the day but whether my error or not this batch isn't my cup of tea.
