jay, my co-head-brewmaster, tried a beer from our first batch today (the pale ale). here's his report....

I cracked open one of our brews today. It looks good, kind of a cloudy amber with a white head. The head didn't last very long, head retention may improve with some longer conditioning. It has a nice hoppy taste. It's got a little sweetness to it too, perhaps because we only had 4 gallons and used a whole bag of sugar.

All and all I like it a lot. Very drinkable. I think it has a clean taste to it, similar to buying a beer on draft. You can't get anything fresher in a bottle than a homebrew. Pretty damn good for a first batch.

i can't wait to try one. we're brewing batch #2 on saturday... a wheat beer.
