Product Details
Brewers, patriots, countrymen: lend us your tankards. This golden-amber beer sports balanced hops and malt, noble aromas, and a clean finish. A complex but approachable mix of spicy German hops and ripe-fruit-sweet caramel malt interweave across your nose and palate from the first whiff to the last sip. An excellent session beer that still has enough going on in the glass for contemplative sipping if the mood should take you.

It's technically not an ale, but we use Wyeast's California Lager yeast in this recipe so you can ferment it at ale temps and still achieve a clean, lager-like result.

Great amber lager
I called it "two coasted lager" due to the California Lager yeast. I fermented at mid-to-low 50's F range and loved the result. The only "lagering" step for me will be in the keg while I try to not drink it all at once! Came out right at 5% ABV. Love it!

Not bad, but for me, I don't have to make it again. A bit of a fruity flavor that just does bot do it for me.

Do you recommend cooler temps for the fermentation?
A shopper on Feb 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Well once again it is a lager so time is your friend. Colder temps --- not really. Follow the recommendations of the temperature for the type of yeast that you are using. They are the
workers at this point and the proper temps for them will make sure they help ferment for you...
Do I have to have a glass carboy for this Brewing process? I bought the Brew Share Enjoy™ Homebrew Starter Kit. Will that be ok?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not at all, the buckets that came with your kit are just fine. That is how i started. You should look at the plastic Big Mouth Bubblers when you need to get more vessels (and you will ha ha)
Bill - would you say it compares to a Sam Adams Boston Lager ?
P O on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Rich,

Yes, Sam Adams was the inspiration for this kit.

Cheers!

Charles
