Thirty six major awards. Four-time Brewers International Champion. Four-time CAMRA Beer of the Year. Simply put, the muse for this kit has won more awards than any other English beer, period. From very simple ingredients comes a wonderfully well-balanced dram. Spicy, herbal, and English biscuits. Flashes of clean citrus and chewy minerals blend into a complex finish that is refreshingly bitter and remarkably dry. The way a pint was meant to taste. Truly spot on! For a limited time, this kit is available with the original Wyeast 1469 Yorkshire Ale Limited Edition Yeast Strain.

Excellent Beer Review by Erick
Rating
This beer is the BEST beer I have made, although I have only made like a 14 or so from kits. I am drinking it now at 5 days, and I can only imagine how awesome it will be next week. Smoothest, hint of malt, the smell is like an exotic flower. Maybe I am a beer virgin but this is going down way too easy. All my brewing friends can't believe its a homebrew, Northern Brewer fresh ingredients may be the reason. Absolutely a definite one to remake. Love this! Highly recommend

Good enough I'm gonna brew it again! Review by Ben

This was the third recipe I've made. When I transferred from primary to the bottling bucket, my siphon sort of malfunctioned and I ended up stirring up the sediment quite a bit. A good amount of it ended up in my bottles. Despite this, I enjoyed every last drop of it. Malt/hop balance was perfect with plenty of flavor without overdoing it. I moved to Korea and shipping to here is ridiculous but I'm gonna try this one again! (Posted on 7/8/14)
Excellent Review by Aaron

I've never had an English Pale Ale - they just aren't that popular in the midwest. I brewed this to learn what they are, and came away very impressed. Great flavor, nicely hopped, slightly fruity and very refreshing. My friends that had visited England said it was identical in style to some of the beer they had. (Posted on 6/20/14)

Innkeeper is my favorite beer that I have ever made. Review by Bruce
Rating
To begin with, let me say that if you are not interested in making a session ale, no need to read this post. A session ale, as served in English pubs, is a relatively low-alcohol beer intended to see you through the evening. Meaning you can have a few pints and still get on the tube (mind the gap).

As research, my grown son and I went to London last year to visit pubs and drink real ale. We managed to visit 26 pubs in a week. We also liked the pub grub.

I have been brewing off and on since 1970, mostly without any great success. Lately I have been interested in brewing session ales like the English bitters we had in London. So, I decided to try the Innkeeper kit from Northern Brewer. It is a Timothy Taylor Landlord clone.
My latest batch of Innkeeper is the best beer I have ever made. It a classic English bitter; it could be served in any London pub. But it didn't start out that way. I have made eight batches of Innkeeper.

The first four did not turn out well because I made some yeast mistakes (Don't mail-order liquid yeast in the summer, and don't try to make Innkeeper with dry yeast)

But the fifth batch of Innkeeper was a very good bitter. I made it with WY-1469 West Yorkshire yeast. I shared a liter with my son who thought it was perfect.

So, my conclusion is that it is well worth working on a style until you get it right. Batch eight of Innkeeper is now in the fermenter. (Posted on 4/21/14)
Lackluster (maybe major improvement w/age though) Review by Mark
Rating
Carbed very well, perfect head, but not a lot of flavor in my opinion. My friend liked it better than I. I had one stray bottle lying around an extra 6-9 weeks after brewing and it seemed to have more character. I like the name, but prefer all the other varieties I've bought from NB. (Posted on 3/2/14)
Good Beer Review by Sean

I found the beer complex and refreshing. With three kinds of hops the hop flavor is not overwhelming and enhances the beer. The reason I gave it a four was that I found that I have made better English Pale Ales. The bitter is great, but I found that the citrus and other flavors were not really there. I expected more malt flavor, but overall a great beer. Be careful if you keg this beer. It carbonates really fast and stays highly carbonated for over a week. (Posted on 2/10/14)
Perfection Review by Scott

I fermented this for two weeks and then bottled it up. 5 days later I tried it. It was awesomely carbonated and tasted great. Thinking about keeping this on hand all the time for when I need a quick brew. (Posted on 1/30/14)
Can't Wait to Try This One Review by Jon

Doing my first batch of this now, and just put in in for secondary fermentation this past weekend. Easy to brew, and it looks and smells like it is going to be great. I can't wait to give it a try in about 3 weeks! (Posted on 1/28/14)
Very good beer, and easy to brew Review by Michael
Rating
I'm only on my sixth or seventh batch of homebrew (all with extract kits), but this turned out to be the best yet. Very easy to brew. We had some complications because a cold spell rendered our basement much colder than recommended for the yeast. It delayed the fermentation, but the flavor turned out great, with a very good carbonation as well. (Posted on 1/2/14)
