Extra Pale Ale Revisited

Our first home-brewed beer was the Extra Pale Ale. In another post I provided a review of the beer after it was in the bottle for three weeks. Below is a picture of the same beer after four weeks in the bottle; I was drinking it while brewing our third beer, a Chinook IPA.

The beer has a a full finger-width of head after pouring. There is carbonation visible for a couple inches beneath the surface. I think the taste is a bit smoother and less "green" than before. That is, it has improved, which is not a surprise. Many homebrewers say that their beers just get better over time and that the last bottle is the best.
