Definitely looks like a winner in my book. I would probably add a pound of LME/DME with this but you will still have a winner come March. Give a good conditioning time but try one after a month and then every week for another month if you can. My pipeline has allowed me to delay drinking a homebrew before its time. Remember these 3 valuable words in the homebrew vocabulary:

Patience Sanitization & SWMBO.

First taste, nice body on this, cascades have added a light flavour and light aroma, I would consider this a mid body/balanced beer. No alcohol bite at 5.8%, colour is very very dark blood red, almost looks brown til you hold it to light. All friends who have tasted this have really liked it. I will throw up some pics in the next few days.

With every bottle gone now. I am finally gonna post a picture. Good smooth semi-session beer. Not too hoppy, not too malty. Yumm yumm.

The picture is a little dark, it was a bit lighter, and blood red.
