Thanks to questions and beer tastings - we've had a bunch of feedback, so we dig into what everyone thought. And after tackling that we stop for another beer as we talk to Matt Van Wyk of Denny's favorite brewery - Alesong in Eugene. And of course, questions, brew news, ingredients and more!

Sweet taste in beer from episode 90

Hey Denny and Drew--- In the Q&A portion of episode 90, a person was mentioning that he gets a sweet taste to his beer (an Oktoberfest, I think it was). You mentioned it could be from oxidation but this didn't quite meet what he was saying. There were some other thoughts about the sweet taste.

Could the age of his ingredients be causing this? Could old or stale malts result in a sweeter than desired finish?

Just a thought.
