4.4 / 5.043 ReviewsGone But Not ForgottenI bit on the high side price wise but after hitting the shelves I know why, 2 cases snapped up in just over one weeks time! I opted for the London Ale Wyeast option and felt it came out smashing baby. Will be picking up another kit on my next visit!December 28, 2012TastyWow, what a tasty beer. We doubled the amount of honey in the recipe, kept it in the secondary for an additional week and bottled and 2 weeks later were enjoying a part of history. Considering making this a house brew, I think a lot of my friends would enjoy it.January 21, 2013Excellent!Not too sweet like I thought it'd be. A must try. I've priced out the ingredients separately before and this kit is definitely a steal!January 24, 2013Superb PorterI brewed this in Mid Dec and kegged it a after little over a month aging in a carboy. I was pleasantly surprised at the overall flavor profile but the ABV sure can sneak up on you. I plan on making this a staple tap beer and may even try the Pam Smith Taddy Porter since it looks similar with a lower ABV % which would be more sessionable.January 29, 2013Everyone loves it!This is a great balanced easy to drink beer. A good beer to hand to any beer drinker, they will love it. I suggest getting the kit inviting a friend or two over and brewing this one. It a great way to get others involved and really stresses the the root of this brew, one nation under brew.February 11, 2013Good to serve visitorsIt's easy to see why the WH chef would choose to brew this style of beer--most beer drinkers will enjoy it although it may not be everyone's favorite. Its flavors are moderate rather than extreme with a creamy head and malt and honey flavors balanced against fairly mild hops.February 19, 2013The price is well worth itA little pricey for a kit but I figured I'd give it a shot, and boy was it worth the money. I was a little impatient at first and I had to try one at the 5 week mark and at that point I was really disappointed with the outcome of the beer so I put it all in the fridge and just waited a couple more weeks. At the 7 week mark I pulled one out poured it and all I have to say is wow. It just needed some time to age. It was nice and toasty with a slight honey taste. The whole batch couldn't have lasted me more than three weeks tops. I will be brewing again in the near futureApril 13, 2013an OK beerI don't know what exactly I expected but for the cost of the ingredients I was not impressed. It is a drinkable beer but not much character. I made the River Brown the same w/e and much prefer that one to this. Nothing bad to say really but I will give it a while longer in the keg and may change my opinion.April 16, 2013white house honey aleI like the flavor of the beer. The honey gives it slightly more ABv and I like the taste too. The price is a little high though.August 19, 2013Cant waitThis is the beer that got me wanting to brew beer. I read a story about the white house chefs brewing beer, and I found the recipe. Of course I had now idea how to brew beer so I purchased a starting kit from Mid west and asked some of my brewing buddies a lot of questions and 4 batches latter and a converted basement I am so excited to get this kit and the Porter to try it. Thanks for making this kit available. I plan on re posting in 6 to 8 weeks when my beer is done.November 6, 2012
