Excellent starter beer
Black Dog Ale was the first LME beer kit we brewed and was a solid performer! Nice, even taste that was universally enjoyed, easy to brew, and one we'll likely brew again. If you're a first timer like we were, I wouldn't hesitate to try this one. If you're a seasoned pro, this will be an excellent addition to your fridge.

First Batch, Great Beer!
This was my very first attempt at brewing beer. Everything went according to plan and the beer turned out excellent! Not quite hoppy and full enough for my taste but everyone that's had it has given it Rave reviews. Extremely drinkable and will definitely make this again, but will probably do some sort of dry hopping the next time around.

Solid tasty beer
Solid beer, something everyone can enjoy, neither too hoppy nor too strong, it's just right. This is a beer to expose BMC drinkers to, to let them try other types of beer.

really nice beer
a nice, middle-weight ale - not to heavy, not too light; the carmel taste at the end is very pleasant; try this one - I really like it; very "drinkable"

At first it doesn't taste like anything special but as the flavors sill your mouth and the smoothness hits you will really like it. Easy beer to drink, and if you like Ambers , this is the kit for you.

Easy to brew
An easy kit to make, and even easier to drink. Balanced and not too bitter. _x000D_Has a great ale flavor but a crisp finish. Not too heavy or filling._x000D_

Nice middle of the road beer
It's a very good right down the middle beer. If I was to add coffee to another brew I think this will be it.

Gets Better With Age
My first impression was that it was good but not special. I believe the secret to this brew is to let it bottle condition for a long time. In fact I'm finding all the brews improve as they age. I have bottles of this that have been conditioning for over six months. To me, there is no comparison to when I first tasted it after a three week conditioning. This has turned out to be one of the best brews. This may turn into my go to brew.

Good amber ale
Most everyone thought it tasted like a Sam Adams Ale or a Saranac. Thought it was a bit maltier than those ... one of my first attempts at kegging and it turned out good. will probably brew this one again.

if you were to add more hops to this kit, what would it be?
D L on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Howdy Dave,

That all depends on what flavors you are attempting to achieve. If you are looking for bitterness, you will want to add the hops at the beginning of the boil, for aroma, at the end of the boil. What type of flavor and/or aroma would you like to add to this beer? Let me know and I will try and figure out the proper hop for your needs!
secondary in glass for this recipe?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used glass carboy for secondary and it turned out great. I always extend the time in the secondary an extra week beyond the recommended time and allow extra time after bottling for better aging.
