      Excellent soup. It was a little bitter (either from my choice of ale or perhaps needing to reduce the paprika to 2 tsp). However, the texture was perfect. I didn't use the full amount of cheese because of the previous review and wish I had. I wonder if they're familiar with beer cheese soups. I will make this again and use the full amount. DH loved it; 5 stars for him.

      I really wish I could give this three and a half - it is very close to being a four-star recipe for us! The instructions were spot on; the consistency and flavour balance were excellent; the pretzels provided a clever contrast in texture. Our only criticism is that this is a very rich soup indeed - best served in smaller quantities than indicated. We think it would serve 8-10 as a starter, maybe with melba toast on the side to offset the richness and the large quantity of cheese. followed by a very light main course (salad, maybe). Good recipe.
