4.7 / 5.043 Reviewsthirst quencherI like darker beers, so this review is based mainly on the comments of my light beer drinking friends. I took this beer to a pool party where most people drink light beer. They all liked it so much, that whenever we get together, they ask if I brought any of that homebrew. Now I'm thinking I better brew some next summer just for them. P.S. I did enjoy a few myself on a hot summer day, as it is a good thirst quencher.January 9, 2013Good Lighter HomebrewBrewed this for my BIL's retirement. Used Wyeast and added 2 lbs. honey at flameout. BIL is a Coors Light drinker, but loves this beer. Crisp, light(er) and dry. A real hit @ the party. Glad I saved a 6 pack for me. Brewing again for summer.January 9, 2013PerfectI got this ale because I read the reviewsand wanted to try and brew something with honey, then I took it a step further and said I want a higher ABV in this light ale. I added the 1lbs of honey and 1lbs of brown sugar. I had to put a blow off on this one because it was so active. In the end it was 5.5% and it was really well balanced. The honey is a must in this one but it will probably turn out well not matter what you do.February 13, 2013Drinkable Light AleIt was fun and easy to make, I used the dry yeast. A good session beer, we wen't though this quickly, and now I have to brew some more beer.March 20, 2013A big hit!I brewed this kit because it sounded like a nice summer beer and the price was right. Following the advice of some other reviewers I added 1 1/2 lbs of honey at the end of the boil. The result was a really refreshing light beer with a beautiful light color. None of the flavors were overpowering, just a slight hint of hops, honey, and a slightly dry, clean finish. I was really impressed with this brew._x000D__x000D_Even my non beer drinking friends were enjoying this beer. Perfect for light beer drinkers, the only bad part is that it was gone so quickly. Will definitely be brewing this again.June 25, 2013A beer with lots of character and flavorI got this kit with my kit of the month subscription, otherwise I would have never ordered it. Not one of my favorite styles, but it's a beer with lots of character and flavor unlike the commercial light beers. And a great beer to have on hand to offer to your commercial light beer drinking friends as an introduction to homebrew, as they might turn their noses when you offer them a IPA, Pale ale or Belgian style beer. Plus as other reviewers said is a great base for adding other flavors to such as honey. Already got another kit and will brew it to keep and offer it to light beers drinkers when they show up to visit.June 29, 2013Great light beerAfter reading the reviews I decided to try this out. It turned out perfect. It is a smooth light beer. No more need to buy miller light for the guests again.July 2, 2013aussie liteVery good kit. One of the first kits I made and it turned out good. A few grains to teach you how to steep and get better flavors.September 7, 2013aussie lightGreat beer kit. Very light in color and bitterness. Crisp finish with a nice balance with the hops.September 14, 2013good beer to do something withI bought this beer with the intent of adding raspberry to it, I thought it would be rather boring only as a light ale so i wanted to experiment a little and see what it would be like with a little flavoring. I only added raspberry extract and I would recommend using real berries if I were to do it again. Didnt get much taste with the extract, only aroma it seemed like. Good easy beer kit to make though.November 19, 2013
