This would be a great first kit for a new brewer. It's easy to brew, tastes like beer, and is very cheap for an extract kit. But don't expect this lite ALE to turn out just like a major American brand lite LAGER. It's darn near as close as you can get though.

American Lite Ale
This is by far the worst kit Ive ever made. Taste like bitter boiled grain.

First brew - Outstanding!
My very very first homebrew, and I couldn't be happier. This is a nice, smooth, light ale that everyone loved. Not a lot of flavor, but just enough to make it comparable to a commercial light beer. My wife, who doesn't care for beer, absolutely loved this one. Wyeast 1056, fermented for two weeks, then sat in the corny keg for two more. Will definitely brew this a few more times for the masses.

Nice light kit
This is a great beginner kit. Simple ingredients, recipe and taste. A definite starting beer for the non home brew fan! Cheers!!
