Low ABV beer
Great beer if your looking for something low in alcoholic content. Price is great as well. Finished right around 3% ABV

Best value kit
60 shilling creates a good English Bitter style bitter beer although it comes from a Scottish recipe. The name comes from the taxation rates for barrels of beer created in Scotland. It was taxed according to the ABV. 60 shilling and 70 shilling were the most common beers available at that time with 90 shilling being sold in 8 oz bottles and known as "Wee Heavy".

Got better with age
I really didn't like it at first. In fact, I had to chuckle about the great reviews that were posted. I ate my words as the amazing, malty flavor developed within 6-8 weeks. Now it is hard not to have one with dinner... great flavor and low A.B.V. Great taste for the price!

Pleasantly surprised!
Tried this one for the price, but am enjoying the drinkability.... Has almost a light sweetness. Will brew this one again.

Great beer. Smokin price!
This is a household favorite. I like to add corn sugar to raise the ABV. Extremly easy to brew

A nice surprise
I didn't know what to expect with this kit, buying it on a whim to see what kind of ale $19.99 might bring. The only tweak to the kit was to add a little honey to the priming sugar when bottling, to dry out the beer a little. Well, I was very pleasantly surprised at the outcome. I spread this beer around to friends and the feedback was ALL positive. Will buy again.

great kit for the price!
wanted to zazz this kit up a bit so i added 4 lbs of dextrose to boost the abv and it turned out great! definitely a good recipe to play around with

What a DEAL!
This is one of our "go to" mid-week brews. Easy and quick. An excellent, light bodied but full of malty flavor. We are IPA fanatics - but this brew is a great change from the hoppy stuff. Buy it - you will like it!

Excellent all around beer
This a great beer for your first time brewing our to use as your standard beer. It's smooth, non-bitter, low AC it has great coloring and the price is right.
