I'm really late with this post, but Beer 1 finished up in July. It's good! The flavor is definitely an ESB, and it has a really strong Kent Golding hops finish. The head is thick and creamy.
I ended up keeping it in the primary fermenter for two weeks, secondary for one, and bottles for at least 3.
It still has a slight "twang" to it on the finish. I don't know if it was the fact that I had trouble with the liquid yeast or if it was something I did, but it's not too noticeable. I'm going to use this recipe again.
