    One of my favourites
    Review by Markon 01/02/2017
    This turned out amazing. A fantastic blend of hoppy and bitter. I will definitely be buying this one again.

    I found it took a while to clear, and like others have said, it matures with age. At 4 weeks in the bottle it was a very good beer. At 8 weeks (by which time half had been drunk) it was amazing. And once again I find myself wishing I had had the will power to leave them alone for longer.

    Too bitter
    Review by Michaelon 13/11/2016
    These kits are great as they come with everything measured out, dry hops, priming sugar etc. However, this one is very bitter and quite thin tasting and, in my opinion, there are better ones in the Festival range

    Best home brew I've made
    Review by Wabson 30/10/2016
    A little lively but settled quickly in the glass.
    Excellent flavour will definately make again.

    Really is good
    Review by Michaelon 23/07/2016
    I tend to do extract kits but got drawn to this. It is great in that everything is measured and ready. As others have said, it does take a bit longer (but what's the hurry?). I did 2 weeks primary, 1 week secondary (with the hop packet included), 1 week warm conditioning (with the included priming sugar), 1 week cool. Easily as good as a pub beer, but not quite as perfect as the extract kits which cost the same and only take an hour longer to make

    Rich, warm, balanced hops. Quick & easy to ferment and clear, then full rounded flavour developed within a couple of weeks. An excellent kit.

    Too hoppy for me
    Review by Bromley breweron 12/10/2013
    Went for this kit based on the reviews. Followed the instructions but it took longer than expected to get the SG to stabilise at the guide line level. As a results hops were in the FV for much longer. The result seems to be a very hoppy brew which is drinkable but much too bitter for me. However I have not been put off and have since bought another Festival kit (Razor back) and this time delayed putting in the hops by a few days and once again the brew took longer to get down to a stable Sg so I syphoned off to another FV straining off the hops for the final few days and this time a great result. I would recommend not leaving the hops in the FV a day more than the instructions recommend. My local brew shop had advised me to only use half the supplied hops but I decided to go as the instructions but turned out they were sort of right.
    Would still recommend but be careful with the hops.

    worth the wait
    Review by bernon 24/09/2013
    I usually brew extract kits ,but thought I would try this new one.
    A very lively fermentation then I put it in a keg, After 3 weeks I
    had a taste , it was horrible. tried again a few days later it was very bitter
    but better. A week later and it has changed into a very good beer
    probably as good as I can brew.( To good to share with others.)

    WOW
    Review by ALANon 04/08/2013
    This tastes like a top quality Ale I had read all the reviews but did not believe it could be as good as everyone was saying. I have now got the Suffolk one in the fermenter, then might have a go with one of the others. I must add how easy the instructions are to follow

    very nice hoppy bitter
    Review by beerlover1983on 14/07/2013
    A well balanced hoppy beer .These kits are the gold standard for anyone starting homebrew or those that have brewed for years they have allways proved to make great tasting beer with no tweaks needed .Value for money again other brands should take note.

    My Favourite Festival Premium Ale Kit
    Review by Thomason 13/07/2013
    I will buy this one again and again. Started 1/6/13 hopped 6/6/13 transferred to bottling barrel fitted with little bottler 11/6/13 and bottled 12/6/13 drinking now 12/7/13. All these kits benefit from at least 2 to 4 weeks maturation, I prefer bottles as I can chill in the fridge. Only 2 more to try, Father Hooks still to buy, currently brewing Razorback, Old Suffolk Strong Ale was my previous favorite brew. Landlord's Finest in keg for 10 days only so needs a wee while longer.

    Awesome, money well spent
    Review by TubbyKon 07/05/2013
    I know i am just repeating what the other reviews have said, but this is just an astonishingly good kit.

    Fantastic Hoppy flavour with a good bitter bite, yet full and satisfying.

    Somehow i managed to make it stronger at 6.2% than the est 5% abv (yes I did follow the instructions to the letter, (which with this kit is actually possible)), but that just made it more entertaining for the easter bank holiday.

    Over all really impressed with the festival kits only 5 More to go, (and i have a golden stag in the barrel maturing as we speak, happy days)

    Good luck, and i hope you enjoy it as much as i have.

    Excellent kit
    Review by dthebikeon 16/03/2013
    Have to agree with Tricky_Dicky. A bit pricey, but a top-notch brew, full flavour, hoppy and very drinkable. Probably the best brew I've made yet. Just about to try another kit from Festival....

    Best Kit Ever
    Review by Tricky_Dickyon 02/11/2012
    What a top notch kit, comes with everything you need, right down to hop pellets and priming sugar.

    Has been in the bottle for over 5 weeks now, and this really does knock the socks off anything else I have brewed - the hop profile which is usually lacking in most kits, really sings out here - but it's in balance and does not overpower.

    Easily as good as any pint I have had in a pub, and even makes the legendary Wherry seem lacklustre in comparison. Can't wait to try more in the series
