What style is it?

American honey amber ale is what Obama's crew made back in '09.

They used amber LME, Cascade, and 1 pound of wildflower honey from the rose garden hive, IIRC.

Can we use the Freedom of Information Act to score the recipe?

I'm pretty sure the petition has already been started, IIRC they needed 20k signatures.

I heard on the radio today that they have a few styles and just released the recipe for "Ale to the Chief".

Northern Brewer already has the kits available. I'll pass, I don't want any part of anything associated with this administration.

nice distraction is what I'm thinking.

I'm pretty sure home brewers aren't too high on the White House's political propaganda radar.

OK, so I brewed up a batch of the White House Honey Porter and thought I’d give a review:

Appearance – At first pour there was a lot of lively bubbling and a thick head but after a very short time it went completely flat. There was some residual bubble head but it was scattered and not coherent.

I expected a better color balance between the light malt extract and the darker grains but the brew color is definitely on the dark side. I’m sure that will appeal to some people.

Aroma – Very strong scent of Wright and Ayers hops which is very typical of the bitter Chicago-style brews. There is some masking of this bitterness with the use of government honey and Hawaiian flavors but the odor seems somewhat rotten as if something wasn’t quite right..

Taste – Despite the hype and expense there is very little taste. In addition to being flat and tasteless it is also very weak. Overall the flavor just doesn’t work.

When I contacted the White House they said that all my problems with this beer were due to the effects of the last batch I brewed (a Busch-clone). They also said I should try again and let the brew condition for 4 years to ensure full success.

What did you think most homebrewers were?

Oh, I know what most of them are..one visit to the local supply shop, or craft brewery fortifies that belief.
I know a half dozen home brewers around here and they are all pretty conservative.

My father switched boats on me at some point and was all excited to try making this beer. Maybe it was just me, but didn't it seem like the initial amounts of steeping water/sparge water were mixed? I can't steep that much grain in like 2 pints of water! Either way, the beer itself is deceiving. Expected something a little more.... porter like. It's not awful, but it is unremarkable. I'd make it again with some modifications to add a little more flavor/abv. Now that I think about it though, if everyone is getting free "obama-phones", can I get a voucher for free obama beer? I think the ingredients cost me damn near $40!

I'm brewing a batch of the White House Honey Porter. I got the kit from Norther Brewer. The starter will be underway in about 3 hours.
