Brickwarmer Holiday Red Extract Beer Recipe Kit
This strong-ish American amber ale is built for the cold: a substantial gravity for snowy weather, but a fast turnaround so you can get some holiday cheer from fermentor to pint ASAP. Malty but not too sweet, just enough bitterness to balance, a definite but not overstated citrus hop profile (bolstered by real citrus!), this is a far cry from most traditional, predictable holiday ales.
Loaded with premium ingredients, this recipe kit yields a saturated copper-red ale with a mind-bendingly complex flavor profile, thanks to a blend of malts. The pale chocolate adds a warm, toasty dimension and suggestions of black tea, while fig-and-toffee elements come from two authentic English caramel malts. The earthy and dark dried-fruit character of the malt segues into bright floral citrus, coming from the resinous lime-and-flowers punch of Styrian Celeia and a charge of sweet orange peel at the end of the boil!

Northern Brewer always delivers as promised. I have yet to be disappointed in the product or the experience. Keep up the excellent work!!
It is yummy!
Best beer I have ever brewed, family thought so as well.
Loved this. Served with with and without cinnamon sugar rim. Either way it’s a great beer. Definitely buying again.
I have to admit I was pretty sad that they didn't have the Season De Noel this year, but I thought I would take a chance om this one and I am glad I did. It's exactly they type of spiced ale you would associate with the holidays and drinking by a roaring fire. Smooth and not too strong so it's really enjoyable. The few folks I have gifted this to have said they enjoyed it. I would definitely make it again.
