Product Details

Take a step back from more complex recipes and take a look at what Solitaire Session Ale can bring to the table. This simple SMASH (single malt and single hop) recipe serves as a showcase for time honored base malt, and then brazenly flaunts the distinctiveness of Simcoe hops. Pouring with a dazzling light golden-straw complexion and endowed with a luxuriant snow-white froth cap, Solitaire Session Ale is a true beauty to behold.

As the pint is raised, fragrant impressions of passionfruit, pine, dank earth, and mild citrus dazzle the senses. Upon sipping, the clean, grainy, honeyed malty aura marvelously fuses with the unique dank, pine, and fruity undertones tendered by the smattering of Simcoe. Should you feel compelled to partake in a few pints, fret not; this ambrosial session ale tips the scales at a mere 4.5% ABV.

If you enjoyed Solitaire Session Ale, you'll love this kit!

Second time brewing

This was really yummy when we made a couple summers ago! Very drinkable and a favorite among guests we shared it with. Easy kit and tasted really good. This time the kit included 3 x 1 oz packages of Simcoe hops: 1/2 oz hops @ 60 min, 1/2 oz @ 15 min before the end of the boil & 1oz @ 5 min before the end of the boil. So I will dry hop the last 1 oz a week before bottling! Worth trying.

Smash American Ale

Great brew my whole family likes it. Have made many times but I do cut back on the hops to bring down the bitterness.

Just tried my first glass. It's good but a little overpowering on
the hops. I might try it again with less hops. I do like the aroma
of the simcoe hops.
