The Kit came with the homebrew deluxe package I bought and was my first ever brew. Just popped the first bottle and it came out great. Everything was simple and easy to follow. This kit kickstarted my obsession into this hobby and I would recommend it for someone looking to brew an easy and tasty pale ale.

Great Extract Beer
This was included with my homebrew starter kit. The included instructions were easy to follow, and my brew day went smoothly. The only good place I had to ferment my beer was my basement, which is a bit cooler (~62F) than recommended, so it took about 10 days for fermentation to finish up. I left it on the trub for another 2 weeks before bottling with the included priming sugar.

The resulting beer is delicious and fruity and pours with a nice head. It is a little more bitter than I usually prefer, but that is probably just me. I found adding about a tablespoon of lemonade concentrate to the glass before pouring makes a decent faux-shandy.

I look forward to buying this one again and using it to experiment with different hop additions.

Great beer, great kit
This kit came with the starter equipment I purchase for Morebeer and it was so good and so easy I have purchased it twice more. Great beer, simple kit. Can’t wait to try a few modifications and see how it turns out.

I have brewed this three times now and I can’t believe the consistency and quality for such an inexpensive extract kick. Just love it. Going to order the American Pale Ale II kit next just to see if it’s as good as advertised. Not been brewing for a long time but of the 8 batches so far this one always steals the show.

Tasty beer!
This Ale had a great taste and aroma. Very smooth, with a slight bitterness. Not overwhelming. It was a big hit with my buddies. The instructions say it's estimated to come out to a 4.5% ABV, but mine came out to just under 5%! I would definitely brew this one again and I recommend it highly!
