Two More Beers, a label, and a name for the Brewery

I have brewed two beers and bottled the Belgian - T (after the T58 yeast used). First I brewed a version of the brewboard's summer community beer. I kegged this one already and am not too satisfied with it. Second, I also mashed and feremented 11.6# of assorted grains. This has since been bottled and it has a strong taste of tobacco. Maybe it'll be the tobacco beer. That is the last time I volunteer to save grains from the trashcan. I look forward to brewing beers I like (APAs, IPAs, browns, and the occasional stout/porter) and am less likely to experiment any more than I have to.

Above is the draft of a label. While it is currently called Malcolm's Sweet Pale Ale, I am thinking of dropping some Beano tablets in the keg to break down the complex sugars and then changing the name to the more appealling Malcolm's Pale Ale.
