Prepared as per recipe and unfortunately, found that I was unable to eat it. The ale gave the meat and vegetables a sour, bitter, almost rancid flavor that I could not get past. As badly as I hate to waste food, this went down the garbage disposal. Thankfully, I only made a half recipe rather than a full one. I cannot recommend this dish.
