Its well-balanced multi-grain backbone offers approachability, yet this radically malt and hop forward transformation of the classic red ale is fully deserving of a double-take. Home-grown Cascade reminiscent of California grapefruit groves impart a citrus twist for a sessionable brew-next-door that’s engagingly drinkable yet, without boasting, knows how to leave an impression.

Customer Reviews

malts on the nose, subtle hop finish Review by Rob
This was my first homebrew and it turned out better than I expected. While not exactly clear, it wasn't cloudy either -- but that red color is fantastic. The flavor has some nice malts on the nose and a subtle hop finish. (And are those some mild caramel notes?) It wasn't as carbonated as expected, but the flavor is what matters and the flavor is great.

Original gravity: 1.052; final gravity: 1.012. (Posted on 9/15/14)
Yet another home run from Norther Brewer Review by Kyle
Brew summary: I used dry yeast, hydrated with water prior to pitching (not a starter). Primary fermentation for about a week. I also used a secondary fermentation even thought it was not suggested in the directions, also for another week. Bottled and ready 2 weeks later.

This beer is fantastic. It's light but full of flavor and just the right amount of hops. It's got a very clean taste. I've brewed 8 different kits so far this year and this would be nearly at the top, just behind SMASH. I'm glad I took a shot on a kit that wasn't reviewed. I'll definitely order this one again.

Tasty Beer! Review by Chucker17
Just got back into homebrewing and this is my 3rd batch back. Bottled 10 days ago and opened my first bottle. Decent carbonation and it is tasty! Nice hop finish and can taste the rye. Looking forward to seeing how this bottle conditions. (Posted on 5/23/14)
