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!

Great Beer!
This recipe came in the premium home brewing kit and it turned out amazingly good. I personally love it but I'm understandably a little biased but I had some people over and they kept complimenting it and asking for more :)

Won't be brewing extract again.
This being the only extract batch I've ever made, I'm really unimpressed. All grain is the way to go if you want superior flavor.

Great value, great beer
An amazing value. This is a great session beer. Not be your mind hoppy or I just ate a load of bread malty. Very nice balance. I cold crash mine with gelatin and it comes out a beautiful clear gold color. Figure five gallons is 40 pints out about, fifty bottles for $30. And should you need more hops, easy peasy to dry hop or double the Cascade.

American Ale - Never Fail
We have brewed this extract kit multiple times with excellent results for both bottles and kegging. This is a perfect extract kit for beginners in that the steps are very simple and primary brew takes under 2 hours including cleanup. For bottles, allow 3 weeks to condition. This brew has a nice light brown color and perfect head with a nice hoppy aroma.

One of My Go-to Brews
This was the first kit that I ever purchased from More Beer, roughly 5 years ago and I keep going back to it. We have bottled and kegged American Ale and the consistent flavor, aroma and perfect two finger head make this kit a no-brainer. This is a classic session ale that will please all. I particularly would recommend this kit to anybody new to homebrewing, as the directions are easy to follow and the results never disapoint.
