Product details

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!

Quite happy with how this one turned out. Let the steeping grain a bit long and ended up with a darker color than I expected, but it’s matured into something quite good after a few weeks in the kegerator.

Excellent Brew Kit

Enjoyed making this beer. Though the instructions could be more clear on if the orange peal stays in the brew through the entire ferment or if they are strained out. Ended up leaving them in, and they caused some difficulty with my auto-siphon during transfer. Other than that, no complaints on this kit.
