    A really good pint of bitter
    Review by Chris on 10/06/2016
    I really enjoyed this first time around, used the advanced instruction set and produced a fine pint of quaffing ale. I agree with a prior comment, it takes after Abbot Ale, and I prefer the taste to the Woodfordes Wherry, which I find similar to Speckled Hen. Have just barrelled a second brew and see this as a benchmark I will return to.

    A good beer but needs to mature
    Review by ptarmiganon 08/10/2015
    Having made this several times over a number of years, it never fails to give a good pint. straight from the basic instructions. Although it is quite drinkable from an early maturation time it gets so much better with a lovely malty/ hop finish if left to mature in the barrel for about 6 weeks.
    Also resist the urge to prime the barrel with sugar as this brew is capable to carbonate itself, and pressurized the barrel all the way to the last dregs.

    A good start
    Review by Mikeon 13/03/2013
    I mixed this Yorkshire recipe with Welsh water (Brecon Carreg). A straight forward process which produced 39 quality bottles of bitter. If you can wait they get better after a few weeks.

    Cracking pint
    Review by Gimleton 17/02/2013
    Very impressed with this kit, absolutely delicious. Fresh, bitter and hoppy. Was slightly worried it was going to resemble Tetley's, but it's miles better.

    Have had no trouble with it clearing. A beautiful pint for very little effort.

    Nice drop of ale
    Review by Keithon 24/11/2011
    Managed to leave this in the keg for a full four weeks before trying it and it has produced a crystal clear ale with a good head, good retention and noticeable hoppy flavour from the hop bag that came with the kit. The only reason I've not awarded five stars is because it is a little on the dilute side, which is probably my fault, as a recent Ruby Red I made from a kit felt a bit thin as well. The instructions with this kit also allow you to tweak the beer to something a bit stronger if you prefer, which I might do next time I buy it.

    Easy to drink and won't last long!

    Just buy it!
    Review by Steve Hydeon 27/04/2011
    This is my third brew and it's sensational! By far the best I've tried to date.

    Firstly, I was concerned as the instructions said not to add any dextrose or spray malt and just use the two cans of liquid wort and top up with the usual ratio of boiling and cold water. I can now attest that this is a far superior method of brewing and the results to taste, mouth feel, head retention and overall quality are a notable improvement to my previous attempts using dextrose.

    Secondly, it takes a little bit longer to clear than it says in the instructions (I am now at 4 weeks since bottling while the instructions say leave for 3). In my opinion it's worth that extra week, or extra 2 if you can stand it, as it will make the beer crystal clear and ensure any residual nasty tastes are conditioned out. Do yourself a favor and be patient, you will be rewarded in the long term. I've just put my remaining bottles into a fridge to cold condition for an extra 2 weeks to really finish them off.

    This is more expensive than other kits, but on this occasion, the end product justifies the extra expense. It reminds me of Old Speckled Hen, which sells for £3.20 a pint at my local.

    An excellent best bitter
    Review by Richardon 05/01/2010
    Once cleared this tasted very good - well hopped and full flavoured. A little reminiscent of Abbot Ale. Unlike Rouse1657 I added the hops prior to primary fermentation, and also my sample took two months to clear (in a barrel) so I'll add finings next time.

    Highly recomended.
    Review by Nick Tayloron 05/07/2009
    I totally agree with the other review, this is an excellent beer and you'd be hard pushed to find a better pint in most pubs. Try this now, you won't regret it.

    Simply wonderful.
    Review by Rouse1657on 28/06/2009
    I have recently returned to homebrewing after an absence of over twenty years and I had been told that beer kits had improved during that time. That was an understatement.
    I have now brewed several bitters over the last few weeks and I have been pleased with the results but this beer was fantastic. I opted to use the bag of hops at the secondary fermentation stage and ended up with a great hoppy flavour. The beer cleared quickly and keeps a wonderful head.
    Certainly not a cheap kit but definitely worth every penny!
