I was looking for a red ale for St. Patrick's day, but I prefer American Reds to Irish. I made the extract version of this kit some time ago and liked it. Now, I am getting into All-grain and figured I would give this a shot.

NIce Red Ale
This finished with a nice dark red color with the malt prominent. Slightly sweet with low hops bitterness. Fermentation started within 24 hours and was complete after about 3 days. Mine came out almost exactly as spec sheet. OG was 1.064 and FG 1.018. I will brew again.

Great Recipe...
I will brew this again-great hop flavor and nose. I like a hoppy beer but this is well balanced and not too overbearing on the hops.

Great beer with good body, color and balanced bitterness
My initial impression was that the bitterness overpowered the malt and there was a hop haze, but after 1 month in the keg the flavors really balanced out and the haze disappeared. I will be sorry when it's gone.

Very drinkable and smooth
This was my first beer in my keg. At first I didn't get the carbonation right...after I fixed that, it's perfect. Not super hoppy, just a good go-to brew.

Very Good
This is a very solid, easy to drink amber. Great transition beer for the non-craft drinker. Will certainly brew again.

Always stocked with this one
I've brewed this recipe 4 times now. Been to Pizza Port and loved their beers, so that's why we gave this a chance in the first place.

I always have this beer to drink. It has excellent body, a GREAT ruby red color, and an upped hop profile that we enjoy. This beer is perfect to drink once carbed, but best after 3 months of conditioning. Overall, this is my go-to everyday beer.

An awesome beer!
good thing I am upgrading my brewery to do larger batches. As Curt C says, this one does not stay around long.

Solid
This is a real nice beer. I can always tell the good ones by how fast they disappear, and this beer went fast.

Cheers!
