Sadly, my review is based on the taste of small bits that stuck to my poorly greased bundt pan, as I made this for a benefit bake sale. I baked the cake according to directions, though I didn't measure the beer, just guesstimated, using a bottle of Molson Canadian. For a glaze, I used the rec of other reviewers and combined Sam Adams Octoberfest beer (maybe 6oz), 1 1/3 C sugar, and 2 tbls butter in a saucepan on high. I boiled for 5 minutes, then let it cool a little and drizzled it over the cake. It was VERY thick (perhaps because I cooked too long?), so if you do this do NOT let it totally cool or it won't be drizzle-able! I then sprinkled the glazed cake w/crushed pretzel pieces. While I wasn't able to taste it all together, the bites of cake and licks of the glaze spoon tasted awesome! I tried to convince my SMIL to sell it by the piece, as opposed to a whole cake, just so i could try a slice! TY for a nice different cake recipe!
