Batch 1: Autumn Amber Ale: Tasting Day

I got to taste my first self-crafted beer. A few people have asked if it was good, and my response has been, "I learned a lot." Seriously, though, I made some mistakes, but the beer isn't terrible. In fact, it's downright drinkable. There is zero head retention, but it was adequately carbonated. It definitely has low alcohol content, but it's full bodied and well balanced. In my haste to taste, I forgot to refrain from pouring the settled yeast into the glass, which added a lot of sour flavor, but it settled out quickly. I'm thinking I'll try to make a Two Hearted clone for my next batch.
