Product Details
Irish ales are malty, smooth, medium-bodied, and most, like our kit, are a deep copper-red color that is created by a blend of specialty malts. Our malt blend also gives this recipe its signature toasty and sweet aroma and flavor. Another defining characteristic of Irish Red Ales are their immense drinkability - definitely a crowd-pleaser beer. Its great taste, drinkability, and low aging requirements make this our best-selling kit.

Hands Down Favorite Beer Kit
2 Weeks Primary1 Week Secondary72 Hour Cold Crash1 Months aging in BottlesThis quicly became my favorite favorite kit. Malty with great toast and roasted notes. The color was a little darker than pictured but not too bad. Everybody loved it and will defintely be making large batches as it will be a staple beer.

Off to a great start
Got this kit as part of my one-gallon starter kit, and it turned out delicious. Real rapid first few days of fermentation, HIGHLY recommend using a blowoff tube for those first days. More brown than red, but has that classic Irish Red taste. I think the idea of adding some honey to the brew would be delicious. Light and easy to drink, light carbonation. Definitely has me hooked to try more brewing!

Great Beer!
I bought this beer in my 1 gallon starter kit and was the very first beer that I brewed. I followed the instructions to a T and VIOLA! Behold! Four weeks later out came an excellent beer! I tried it after a week in the bottle but it still tasted a little green and quite un-carbonated. After the second week, the flavors had rounded our to a great beer that I would buy in the pub! This ale has a nice malty flavor with an ever so slight bitterness from the hops on the finish. I will make this one again!

Made a great beer!
I bought this one and the Rum Runner Stout with my starter kit to try my first home brew. I'm hooked. It has a great flavour and was easy to brew. It fermentred really rapidly for the first three days, then died down, which gave me some worries as I found out after brewing that you shouldn't use distilled water (Chicago water is too chlorinated IMO). Ended up coming out great. I did have some blow off, but the kit included a tube for handling that, which worked fine.

Great beer. Wish I would have just done 5 gal.!!
I love these 1 gal. kits. They are great for beginners, or just to try something without the big commitment of 5 gal. Plus, brew day and cleanup are a breeze. I picked this one up on a whim since it is NB's best seller, not really into malty beers, but I figured 1 gal. what's the harm? Well I really loved this beer, and everyone is begging me to do it again, even people who "don't like beer"!! I love the depth of flavor and complexity of this beer, caramel, light roasty flavor, subtle maltiness, and it only seems to get better with age. I'm usually one for hoppy beers, but that may be changing because of this beer. As they say, the last beer of a batch is usually the best! I'm bottling 5 gal of the Holiday red today to bottle condition until the fall. I can't wait. Really, just try this kit, it is definitely worth it!

My very first brew!
I made this beer when I ordered a starter kit, and wow this beer is very good!! It was my very first time brewing my own beer, and now I'm hooked at making my own from now on. Just ordered another kit and can't wait to start brewing again!

Really GooD!
I ordered this kit just to sample the brew. I really liked it. It was a cinch to make! Will be brewing this one again on a larger scale!

Great flavor!
I really like this beer. The taste is rich and malty, but with a lot of brightness to it, too. The head is super creamy. Smells amazing with some slight fruit notes to it, but that may just be my nose.Just follow the directions and be patient. Give it 2 full weeks in the bottle to condition and carb up. You'll be glad you waited.
