I'd have done some orange zest too, but that sounds rly good to me. 


Hmmm...I was going to buy some mandarins today for a different recipe (Calidelic Mandarin IPA), so I think I'll "dry-hop" some peel along with the Mandarina Bavaria hops.  Hopefully I'll hop the right keg this time.  Thanks for the feedback Tim!

I'll venture just a bit further than saying that this one is "good" or "nice..."


Head -- light and off-white

Body -- medium

Aroma -- citrusy and malty

Flavor -- mandarin, lemon, tart and/or bitter with a light malt base

Color -- a very inviting clear, medium amber

Within style guidelines? -- again, IDK.
