Alpha King is my favorite beer available in these here United States. I tried a clone very early (March?) that was tasty, but wasn't near enough to the real thing. Kinda butterscotch-y, if memory serves.
Well, I've learned a lot in the last 11 months, and it's time for another go. I basically took the BYO grain bill and Don Osborn's hop schedule (because it matched more closely to what is in Alpha King). More complex from a recipe standpoint than the previous incarnation, where I pretty much focused on the hops and with with a base grain bill.
This one came out great. Almost spot-on.
