I really enjoyed this one the color was too dark and more on the brown side and it came out too dry but is very clear and tasty. I think next time I'll raise the mash temp up to help keep the maltiness the style needs. I've already adjusted the grain bill in the recipe by cutting the chocolate malt down to 3 oz and I'll look at other yeast options maybe an English ale variety. I did like the final product but it wasn't a red closer to an English Brown its very refreshing and has a nice mouth feel.
