Like all high adventures, it started out with a seemingly simple quest: Brew a beer worthy of our favorite characters from a far-off fantasy realm. One that would fill flagons in a shire as easily as it would stream from golden goblets in the halls of storied kingdoms. Two years, 10 test batches and much muttering of “my precious” later, we have the answer: John Palmer’s Elevenses Ale.

This beer is the perfect balance of malty sweetness with a hint of smokeyness that comes through the warmer it gets. You can taste the oak come through and its a perfect balance with the Norther Brewer hops. Great session beer. Love this beer!

This has to be one of the best kit beers I have ordered ever! I totally brewed this daydreaming about Frodo Baggins and the Shire, and refused to take a single sip until week 5... ish. I christened this batch off to the trilogy and smiled to the very last sip!!!

Minor league stout, major league taste
Great beer even though I goofed. Recipe calls for 0.6 oz of hops and I added the whole bag 1oz. Smokey rich malty wonderful flavor. Definitely big improvement from store bought brown ales.

Such a good beer!
Absolutely fantastic when properly brewed, lightly carbonated, and served north of 45F. The smoke character is in the background and melds well with darker grains. I love the Mild style, but this is by far my favorite grain bill. I will definitely be playing with the Oak Smoked malt in other beers.When I think of Hobbits, this is it. Dark, lightly smokey, unfiltered (through clear with english yeast), lightly carbonated, and low enough gravity to drink as many as your belly can hold without feeling it.GREAT BEER!!

Very good provided care with mash and bottling taken.
I've done a few light English browns and Elevenses All Grain is the one I plan to keep in rotation. I've had issues with this style and have wound up with over-carbonated bottles and thin, acidic flavors. 1st off, attention to my mash pH and water carbonate adjustments for the roasted and caramel malts has been essential with my soft water. I'm using Bru'n Water "Balanced Malty" as a guide. 2nd, nailing the mash temperature high enough has been essential to get adequate mouth feel. You can keg this beer as quickly as the directions say but you CAN'T bottle it that quickly or it will dramatically over carbonate after a month. I let it run 3 weeks in primary then condition in keg for 3 more weeks before cold crashing and bottling from keg. I follow the directions for toasting the oats. My main deviation is to use Wyeast 1968 instead of the recommended yeast because I prefer the strong floral noise of 1968. This is a light beer with loads of flavor that is not too thin if you get the mash temp right. It is prone to taste acidic and I adjust the mash and avoid over carbonating the final product to help with that.

What the doctor ordered
A perfect session beer. The ingredients were shipped fresh and were great quality. Easily the best beer I've had in a while and second only to the Zombie Dust kit as far as beer I've made to date. Will defiantly brew again.

Awesome brown ale
Awesome brown ale. I aged my batch on American oak for 2 months. Came out with great depth of flavor and pronounced vanilla overtones. Also used "Denny's favorite" yeast

Chocolate and a Hint of Smoke..
Easily my favorite brew thus far.... Dark medium body with lots of chocolate and a nice smokey finish. A very balanced and yet complex finish.... Drink a bit above the normal and you will not be disappointed.

Great beer!
I accidentaly ordered the grains crushed and let it sit for a few weeks before I realized this. Missed the OG by 5 and had to use the dry alternative because my 1275 smack pack exploded. I'm not sure I toasted the oats as much as needed, no cookie smell. Even so, this beer is excellent! Drink it at cellar temps with some aged cheddar. Very complex and tasty malt profile.

Great with your biscuit
I can't say I got it to turn out exactly right, but I do know I got my oats a deep golden. Wonderful dryness and maltiness with a low body and light carbonation that really helps wash any food down, but dear lord, a bottle of this and a brownie is heaven. It really offsets super sweet foods perfectly without overpowering them. I imagine a heavily iced cake would be perfect as well.
