- 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 of classic strong pale ale. 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!
This kit is available with the original Wyeast 1469 Yorkshire Ale Yeast Strain
We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts, but it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

- 4.6 / 5.018 Reviewseasy to make, easy to drinkThis is my house beer and pairs well with anything. Easy to drink and allows you to have a few without regretting it in the morning.October 15, 2013UnrealThis was my first all grain batch. Made more mistakes than i can count during the brewing process and This just might be the best beer I have ever had store bought and homebrew. Forgiving recipe for 1st time all grain. Can't get enough of it.April 28, 2012New "house brew" by popular demandI love a good English Bitter/ESB but it's tough to find on draft here in the mid-southern US. Homebrew to the rescue!My neighbors and friends have requested that this brew earn a permanent place in the keggerator, and I'm happy to oblige. Warm biscuity nose, balanced malt and hops, and a slightly dry finish with just a hint of raisin or toffee. I opted for the Wyeast 1318 London Ale III yeast as it supposedly comes from the English brewery that produces one of my favorite bitters. The yeast performed extremely well and I'll certainly be using it again.Added a pound of carapils for more body/mouthfeel.Swapped the corn sugar for 1 pound of brown sugar for those toffee/caramel notes.May 29, 2011FantasticA little taste of home for an Englishman!July 17, 2013WowBeer finished fast. 2.5 weeks then kegged. One of the best beers I have brewed. Brew and enjoy.January 2, 2012This kit will impress youBrewed this as my 3rd all grain batch and was still refining my process. I hit a higher efficiency than anticipated and I ended up high on the OG at 1.052. Fermented down to 1.006.Even though I'm high on ABV I think this beer is well balanced. Brew this as is and enjoy. You wont be disappointed.April 13, 2012Oh....it's all it says it is!Fantastic drinker. I will have made 200 gallons this year, and this is one of the top brews I made. I will brew it again soon, as alas......there will be none left, and I will have to!February 15, 2011Great every day beerI am a big fan of the English style beers and this kit is one of the best I've made. While I like a IPA as much as the next guy, there is something about a well balanced English beer that goes with every occasion.December 10, 2013A perfect English pintI just transferred this to the keg from primary and the sample I pulled is delicious. I can't wait to get this one carbonated. I'll be brewing this a lot more. I think I've found my house beer.February 28, 2011K.I.S.S.It is amazing how great this beer is. The Wyeast 1469 is one of my favorite yeasts, and I bought a stockpile of it so I can make this ale again and again. We homebrewers are sometimes guilty of adding way too many specialty malts, so I urge you to use restraint and appreciate how much complexity you can get from such a simple recipe.March 17, 2011
