These are among the most difficult beers to brew because their pale color, low hop rate, and delicate flavor don't hide flaws. The best course of action is to pick a proven recipe and ferment it at the appropriate temperature! Our American Lager's body and flavor are lightened by rice, and yields a straw-colored and clear beer with a snowy head. Recommended: 2-stage cold fermentation and yeast starter.

Easy but time consuming good brew Review by Jim
Fantastic lager! Who said it is hard to brew "Home brew lager?" A really great summer brew. Light color, light and sharp crispy flavor but still not the dreaded "Light beer".
I getting ready to attempt to make my nest batch (this week-end) an IPL by dry hopping the batch with several different hops about half way through the lagering process. I lager 2 months in the refrigerator. (Posted on 1/9/14)
Easy to brew, easy to make your own Review by Steve
I made this the first time just straight with the instructions. Pretty good but was missing something. I brewed it the second time and added a pound of honey the last minute and really inhanced the flavor. Going to add a few raspberrys this time and see that that does. (Posted on 8/25/11)
Yeast Experiments Review by Mr. Knox
I have brewed this kit as per the instructions in the past and it was excellent, but my favorite thing to do is to brew this kit with French Saison yeast (Wyeast 3711). The minimalist ingredients really showcase what a wonderful job those 3711 yeasties do.

If you are new to homebrewing and want to learn what the difference between yeast A versus yeast B is, this is the kit to do it with. (Posted on 4/18/11)

A great delicious american beer. Review by Redfields
While uninspired this a wonderful beer to just drink and enjoy. I wanted it a bit lighter so I substituted the gold extract with the pilsen. Some might wish more hop bite this beer is easy to tweak to to fit your taste to a T! (Posted on 10/25/10)
