    Stunning
    Review by Peter Kon 15/07/2016
    This is a fabulous light, sprightly, hoppy brew, jam packed with citrus hoppiness. It has been so popular with friends and family that I've had to get another batch on pronto.
    Easy to make and even easier to down, especially on hotter days.
    If you are after a truly outstanding pint of hoppy, citrus 'wowness' then don't hesitate; it is superb.

    Refreshing citrussy summer ale
    Review by Peter Kon 12/06/2016
    Light, hoppy and bursting with citrus flavours, this is ideal served cold on a hot summer's day. I imagine it would go well with a curry, or indeed any salad based meal. I can see why it has won awards. My friends and relatives who like this style of beer have all passed positive comment and come back for more. It is therefore difficult to fault; I just hope the later bottles retain their hoppiness and flavour.

    Nice easy drinking beer
    Review by Davidon 24/05/2016
    This is a pleasant, hoppy pale bitter. I was slightly disappointed as I had hoped that the the hop flavours would be more aggressive, don't get me wrong there's a definite hoppiness there and it's very drinkable just a bit subtle for my taste. It's been popular with friends and family so maybe I need to seek help for my hop addiction.....

    Hoppy in the beginning but turned out very bland....
    Review by PaulBon 24/11/2015
    Bit disappointed in my first DME/extract brew; Not sure what might be wong;

    Read a lot of the reviews and this seemed to be one of the best kits brewuk from user reviews;
    Came at this from about a dozen 2 can kits (Festival/Milestone/brewdog etc); Found them a bit samey and some with a chemical taint so looking at these as a first easy step to allgrain and trying to get some home brew variation.

    The boil was fairly easy and smelt amazing; OG was about 1050; Pitching temperature 23 degrees;
    I keep tight control on fermentation temperature and have heater and a raspberry pi/internet based measurement device. Temperature variation is from between 21.25 and 22.8 over the entire fermentation;
    (Geeky but it keeps me off the streets.... )

    Yeast took about 18 hours to get going but once it was off it ate through the sugars very quickly and within
    36 hours it was at or about FG; found this impressive (it was the safale yeast) as it might take other brews
    a good 7-10 days to get that far; So it looked like we were off to a great start.

    I tasted the SG sample jars and they were good; no chemical twang and the hops
    were present and tasted really,really good; Added the dry hops after 36 hours (SG @ 1012) and from there the hoppy flavours seemed to reduce down day by day,which was not expected or wanted!

    I left the hops in for 5 days and then primed and bottled; Now been conditioning for 3+ weeks;

    Problem it is just does not taste of anything; definitely alchohol present; its not unpleasant there is just not a lot of flavour and its really bland;

    Not quite sure what might have happened; I have the WTA extract kit to take a run at soon; Hoping to get better results with that;

    Excellent
    Review by Peteron 10/09/2015
    The first time I made this beer I thought it was so delicious I drank most of it after it had only been in the bottle for 2 weeks. The few stray bottles which made it to the ripe age of 4 or 5 weeks old were even better. So good I have made this beer numerous times again and advised friends who are getting into brewing to start with this beauty. And at 4.5% ABV it is one you can easily get tucked into without falling off your chair.

    The best yet
    Review by HarptreeHercon 24/07/2015
    I have now tried various extract packs and thought I had found the best with "Way to Amarillo" until, that is I discovered Frank as Apollo. It's a little longer in preparation but that doesn't matter - the result is far superior to many micro-brewery beers I've had in decent pubs. Once fermented out as per instructions I racked into a new clean keg and added the correct amount of sugar. Left then for 48 hrs (releasing any build up of gas) before bottling (that way no need for sugar in the bottles). It has cleared beautifully after 2 weeks and now, 4 weeks on it's FANTASTIC! I cannot imagine it improving but will leave a few bottles to see. Bottling this way provides a draft-type beer rather than the horrible bottled beers normally sold - slight fiz, nice head, but gorgeously drinkable with a strong bittery hoppiness to the after-taste.

    23 litres of liquid heaven......again
    Review by Davidon 15/07/2015
    I have brewed the Extract kit before and on first tasting, wondered what the fuss was all about, BUT...... leaving it for just a few weeks it turned into a heavenly brew. I have just ordered one more extract kit and an additional AG kit to see if I can take this little beauty into a higher orbit!!

    Just lovey
    Review by Paulon 12/06/2015
    You brew one kit and decide it is your favourite then you choose another one then this is then your favourite. Frank is just stunning - this goes on my must brew again but with so much choice from Brew UK it is such a dilema try a new one or brew one you like again

    Nicely crafted - hoppy with a deeper, fruity, flavour
    Review by drbon 25/09/2014
    Brewed in early summer 2014 --- almost finished now. I had both Way to Amarillo and Rocker APA in stock at the same time -- this is always my favourite choice when undecided. Like the reviewer Cadey, I think I prefer this over WTA & Rocker -- just as refreshing but more interesting and flavoursome. It also seems to have held / developed a nicer flavour over time.

    Good stuff
    Review by Tomoon 29/04/2014
    This is a seriously good beer with everything a real ale lover could want, and it's made in your own home.with the price of a pint now days who would.ent want to brew beer of this quality at home and is of mostly a lot better than most pub beers I have ever tasted, every one should brew or at least have a go, it's very rewarding and you can be proud what is after all your own craft beer. Cheers to brew uk and look forward to a lot more recipes as promised by Greg

    Outstanding
    Review by Fletchon 05/04/2014
    Wow! This is the second brew extract kit I've done, the first being St. Austell Tribute, which was pretty good. This is in a different league though; no hint of that 'home brew' smell, instead a fabulous hoppy aroma. The taste is excellent; easily up to pub quality. I intend to step up to all grain brewing in the near future, but until then, this will be my regular brew.

    Pub/Shop Quality
    Review by Hopiton 26/01/2014
    Fooled friends and relatives into thinking it was bought from a shop rather than made in the kitchen!

    Brewed the Extract kit and dry hopped after 5 days, and it finished fermentation in 10 days!

    Bottled 1/2 the brew and pressure barreled the other. The pressure barrel cleared in 2 weeks to reveal a delicious pale amber fruity hoppy ale, as good as a pub cask beer. It kept its flavor and carbonation in the barrel for over a month, with the help of a couple of gas bulbs. Bottles cleared within 4 weeks and were every bit as good as the barrel.

    Will be brewing this again soon once Rocker APA is bottled...

    WOW!
    Review by Garon 09/01/2014
    This is now favourite beer of all time , if you like hoppy , fruity beers
    eg badger golden glory, golden champion etc, then get this you won't
    look back WTA is good but this has a bit more of everything , aroma,
    flavour and body. Great with a curry, just as good on it's own it definitely won't last long .

    No Grains, very pale, very fruity
    Review by Roberton 31/12/2013
    I brewed this pack and it has not turned out as I expected. The photo shows grains but there are none in this pack or the instructions which had me wondering at first. I used California Ale yeast and made a starter the day before. It went off like a rocket at 19 degrees, dry hopped it after 5 days as per the instructions but by that time it was down to 1010 anyway. Barrelled it with priming sugar and after 2 weeks it's still quite flat, so I've gassed it up. Taste is very grapefruity, more than I like personally, I prefer a beer to taste of hops not fruit, but that's mellowing now. It's very very pale - almost like a lager to look at. I don't think I'd brew it again.

    Stunning!
    Review by Beer Headon 05/11/2013
    I have been making brew extract beers for some time and have always been a big fan of WTA but in my opinion this beer out punches even that. It's a hoppy delight! If you've been thinking about trying it, think about it no longer you won't regret it, its a delight.

    Smashing beer
    Review by Cadeyon 18/05/2013
    This beer is fantastic. Brilliantly hoppy and perfect for the BBQ should we ever get some decent weather!

    Personally I would recommend this above the ever popular WTA which I've also brewed but I guess it's a matter of taste.

    Fruity, Hoppy and delicious
    Review by Huntleeon 17/05/2013
    I brewed this extract pack 4 weeks ago and transferred it over to a barrel after 2 weeks. The hop aroma was intense, probably due to nearly 200g of hops!

    2 Weeks later the beer is crystal clear and has retained its hoppy flavour, whilst the aroma has lessened a little, but it still smells great. I enjoyed a couple last night and don't think this is going to last long.

    I was going to order a WTA in the next week or so but am now in two minds - its that good.
