4.6 / 5.010 ReviewsGood cloneI used the 1098 liquid yeast. Very traditional ESB. The color turned out perfectly and the hop profile is spot on for the style. I might up the crystal malt in the future, just to add a little more character but other than that it is perfect.January 13, 2013Close to Bass AleI like Bass ale, so I was excited to try this kit. The beer was excellent. In a side-by-side comparison with real Bass it was a little darker but tasted almost the same. I used the White Labs British Ale liquid yeast.April 13, 2013Tastes just like it!This kit is as close to a clone as any kit I've ever made before. If you love Bass you have to do yourself a favor and make this kit.April 20, 2013brass aleGood kit, very close to the real this. Good mouth feel and very malty flavor.August 29, 2013Brass AleGreat kit -- solid, very drinkable brew! Recommend using 1098 liquid yeast.March 28, 2014TastyThe kit makes a good beer and a good clone. Nice flavor and smell. I think it might be the water salts the kit comes with helping the hops give their best.March 29, 2014Pretty closeI like it. Easy to follow direction.August 3, 2016Reasonably close to Bass AleThe beer came out ok, and the taste is similar to Bass. I used the Wyeast pack, with 3 weeks in the primary, 4 weeks to clear in a carboy, and 3 weeks to condition.June 21, 2013Makes a good beerI used distilled water sop that the Burton Water salts wouldn't ruin the taste by giving it too minerally a taste. The clone is a good beer though it's doesn't really taste like Bass. Its drinkable and worth making. If I brew it again I will add a pound of brown sugar.September 20, 2013Beer is okNot so close to Bass, but still worth drinking. This was one of the first all grain kits I made. The color and hop profile are good, just that the taste is a little off._x000D_3 stars.December 14, 2013
