Details

Occupying the space between an American Pale Ale and an IPA, Citral Pale Ale offers up a barrage of citrusy and tropical flavors with a gentle malt structure neatly wrapped in a session strength package. The beguiling deep golden color is capped with a sturdy, brilliant white foam crown, presenting profound aromas of grapefruit, melon, lime, passion fruit and tangerine. Citral Pale Ale sips with a smooth, medium body complementing the complex overture of velvety caramel malt character and intricate bursts of tropical fruit, mango, and citrus flavors. With an ABV right at 5%, this session strength beer is perfect when you want to have more than a single pint - believe us, you will.

My first batch turned out to be one of the best beers I have ever brewed. The hops leave a citrus, grapefruit, aftertaste._x000D__x000D_I love it!

Excellent beer, I made it 3 times so far. On the second fermentation I only add the citus flavor, no more cascade. This made the beer less biter and the citrus/grapefruit flavor is more develop.

Great beer!
This beer disappeared quickly. One of the best beers I've ever brewed. I thought the hops might overpower this one, but I was wrong. A great subtle hoppy flavor with a perfect citrus backing. Fantastic brew, it is now my #1 go to kit, second to Hanks Hefe.

This beer was just what I had hoped for, very citrusy. Citra hops are my favorite and they came thru nicely in this recipe.

Delicious!
Just cracked a bottle last weekend after conditioning for two weeks. This one was quite tasty. Mine came in a bit higher abv than expected, but doesn't affect the taste of this one. Very citrusy in aroma and taste. I'd like to try this one again for sure.

Wow! Tasty hop that Citra. I love that fragrant perfume of its wonderful fruit bouquet. Then it steps aside briefly to give you it's sweet malt flavors. Then right back at you with it's intense hoppy goodness. Thank you Citral Pale Ale you have turn me into a beermmolier.

Very trubby beer and be careful dry hopping.
Have had nothing but problems with this batch since i brewed it. I lost over a gallon and a half to trub. Even with the use of a secondary. Also, let it sit longer as recommended by the instructions. still seemed to be loaded with it. When i dry hopped, the kit came with pellet hops, and i added those directly to my carboy. normally, I've done this with leaf hops and haven't had a problem. But this time around, after transferring to my keg, and carbing, the dip tube is constantly getting clogged with hop residue. no matter how many times i clear it. I'm down to about half a keg just from the loss of trub and troubleshooting the clogs. Still haven't been able to enjoy it. I'm now trying to figure out the least problematic way to filter out the hops from the keg so i can actually enjoy what little is left of the beer. If you're bottle conditioning, you likely won't have this problem. my recommendation, use some irish moss at the end of your boil or possibly the gelatin method to collect as much of the trub in your primary. then hopefully you won't have as much as i did in the secondary. When dry hopping, if you get pellets, i might suggest a tea strainer of some kind to prevent future clogs.

Great, but a lot of sediment
When I bought this I didn't know I would need a second fermenter to complete. So much sediment when I racked it into the secondary fermenter that I probably lost over a half gallon. Still ended up getting some sediment in some of the bottles!

Low OG
Bought this and two other kits last time MWS had 3@19.99. This kit and the others came in at low gravity. Kind of happy I switching to all-grain, it my opinion MWS just off loaded these kits at a lower price because of poor LME.

Response from Midwest Supplies
Low OG in an extract kit comes from the addition of top up water. Stratification happens from the two different densities of the liquids and can actually take a lot of stirring for it to mix. Every batch of LME is tested by Briess to make sure it meets the correct specs.
