This was the second beer made for Jim’s failed 60th surprise birthday party. The first beer I called Get Off My Lawn as an homage to someone turning 60 and yelling and young kids in his yard. It was hoppy and higher alcohol, so it was a bit more like someone yelling, “Get Off My Lawn!” This one is mellower, but since it’s still in the “Surprise Birthday Series”, I carried forward the name, even thought it didn’t make much sense.
Slight malt sweetness with very minor hop bitterness. This is definitely more of a malty tasting beer than hoppy beer. Overall fairly mild, but still gives a tastebud tweak in the aftertaste with a bit of hops.
