Product details

Rather like a foreign stout without any roasted barley; or an overhopped albino Irish red. This creamy-textured, straw-gold ale offers up suggestions of buttered toast, warm cereal, and a trace of fruity, herbal hops.


Rules, schmules. Rather like a foreign stout without any roasted barley; or an overhopped albino Irish red; or an overgrown American wheat taking Celtic harp lessons; or a Kölsch gone rogue and on the run from the Reinheitsgebot ... pigeonhole it if you must, but this creamy-textured, straw-gold ale begs to be judged on its own merits. Capped with a dense meringue of nose-dotting foam, the pint offers up suggestions of buttered toast, warm cereal, and a trace of fruity, herbal hops.

A full body with thick mouthfeel, more buttered toast and fruity hops give way to a finish evenly split between malty and bitter. Flaked barley and oat malt (wheat DME for the extract version) build density and a viscous texture with supporting grain flavors. Serve at cellar temperature any time of year; if you really want to go nuts, keg it and dispense with beer gas through a stout faucet!

Nice brew

Just finished bottling the brew. Seemed to turn out very nice. I was pleased with the taste before carbonation. Can't wait to get the beer carbonated in the bottles. I would purchase this again.

SO-so.

Blow off tube a must, taking forever to carbonate, a little more bitter than I like.

Balance Irish Ale

Got a little darker then I thought it would, but it seems all my brews end up darker then the pictures. It has good flavor and is definitely an Irish beer. Despite color it is a light drinking ale with a mild sweetness. OG = 1.060 and FG = 1.012 giving a 6.3% ABV. It is an anytime, season drinking beer. I used Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale Yeast as yeast of choice and am happy with the way it turned out.

Smooth

Nice brew. Two weeks in primary and two in secondary. This one took a little longer to carbonate, but likely due to cooler conditions in storage (around 64 degrees). Nice balance and very smooth. Refreshing ale.

Excellent beer

This beer came out great! Very easy recipe to follow. I used the liquid yeast and priming sugar, which really made a difference. I highly recommend this kit.
