Light Ale
I don't normally drink this type of beer but decided to make it for a party I was having with all of them being Bud Light drinkers. This beer went over very well with all of them. A nice light beer that is very easy to drink and actually has some flavor to it.

Pretty good for an extract kit.
Haven't done an extract kit in awhile, but this turned out very good and my friends loved it. Told them it was my own recipe.

Love it!
I've made two batches of this kit and everyone that prefers a lighter brew has raved about it! I presently have a batch in the fermenter with1 oz additional Cascade hops. I will split that batch in half and will add Grapefruit zest in one for an even more intense cltris aroma. This beer will always occupy 1 of my 3 taps.

Good replacement for the big beer names
I've brewed 6 batches so far and this is not one I would normally have purchased but we were having a family get together and they are all Bud Light drinkers so I thought I would try this one to persuade them with something different. Only problem was I only had two weeks before the party so it spent one week in the fermentor and one week in the bottle which is the quickest I've ever done a batch from start to finish. I put a case in the refrigerator the morning of the party and when we opened the first one I was surprised to see it was very well carbonated already and everyone loved it. It is a very light, low alcohol beer with just a very slight citrus flavor. So slight in fact that it was even hard to notice it was there if you didn't really try to taste it. So overall it is a good replacement for those Bud Light drinkers who really don't like to have any flavor in their beer. This has some but just a hint but it is very drinkable.

Great tasting beer.
This is the first time that I brew this recipe kit and I'm very satisfied with the results, not too biter and really nice aroma, just perfect. I most definitely would recommended.

Great beer add corn sugar
I've only made this beer once and I added corn sugar. I'm sure it's a great beer with the kit by itself but I listened to the mike guy a few reviews back and added corn sugar to get more bang for my buck. I made a 10gal batch and added 3lbs of corn sugar and it turned out great. It's especially good if you have girls or guys that don't really like the darker beers and are weening them off coors or bud lol. Try it for the price you might like it :-)

Great Beer!
Very very surprised by this kit. Far exceeded my expectation on it. I was planning on a watered down light ale, and instead was met with a very drinkable, flavorful beer. This will be a staple now on tap!

Excellent beer
I let it sit in primary for a week then transferred to secondary for a month or better, then put in a keg. I'm amazed by how great this beer is!! Next order I will be buying 3 of this kit to keep on tap at all times!
