Very nice - great ESB kit
I am very happy with the quality of ingredients and the flavor of the finished batch turned out very nice. Easy to brew you'll be happy with the results.

ESB is the Bomb!
What a great kit. Beer came out nicely balanced between malty and bitter. Reminds me of Redhook ESB in Seattle, one of my favorites.

Tremendous balanced flavor.
I ordered this kit as my first ever all grain beer. It couldn't have turned out better as an easy to drink balanced flavorful beer. I've gotten rave reviews from the few people that have tried it. I think it's one I'll keep on tap quite often.
Pours great, has a nice color, and tastes great too.
Very nice lattice as well.

Love IT
I've made this one 3 times now. It's light yet flavorful a bit of malt and nice 40's IBU bitterness. My BLF (Bud lite Friends) really love it, and me too. Nice summer time ale. I've been hitting 5.5% alc on it. The color is darker than amber. Good served ice cold and I've been carbonating to 12.5 so I can put it from the keg into growlers and still have a nice carbonation to it.
