M-type Imperial Amber Ale

M-type Imperial Amber Ale

This is a beer specifically made for my wife. She insisted that I stick with my Stellar theme of beverages (Io Golden Strong Ale, Nemesis Quintupel, Europa Eisbock, etc), so this beer is named for the Amber colored M-type asteroids. Amber colored and carries her initial. Win. Win.

She likes strong, malty, balanced ales with some toasty bread like flavors. I’ve been working on this one for about a year to get it right.
