I just popped open my first home-brew. It was an extra kit of Caribou Slobber. Let me preface this by saying that it has only been conditioning in the bottles for a week. I plan to leave it be for another week, try it, and possibly let it condition for a 3rd week before chilling them all. My taste-test results from today.
Carbonation was great - nice thick head and bubbles throughout the drink. Smells great, like the malt extra to be exact and tastes pretty good on the initial draw. However, after it sits on my tongue a bit, it has this very odd aftertaste and I can't pinpoint it. Don't want to say sour, although that did come to mind. To be honest, if tastes as if the alcohol is lingering in my mouth for a bit.
