German ale

Review by LES R. on 9/17/2005

Pros: Nice color. Great taste. I am new to brewing and this was my second try. Easy to brew and drink. Saving some for an Octoberfest event.

Cons: Had some trouble activating the yeast pack. Couldn't quite get the hang of busting the inner pouch.

German Ale improves with age

Review by Bill B on 9/17/2005

Pros: This beer has a great color and appearance. The flavor is pleasing too. Initially the beer had a rather floral aroma and taste. After some time in the bottle the floral has given way to a delicate fruitiness. This is an excellent beer to enjoy with food. I unveiled this beer (my first attempt at homebrewing in 20 years) along with the Father's Day Ale at a backyard barbecue which was attended by quite a few Miller Lite devotees. They loved the German Ale. I was happy to get them out of their comfort zones and expose them to the possibilities of home brewing.

Cons: No cons really. I have noticed that it is becoming increasingly difficult to enjoy commercial beers as I really enjoy the flavor and freshness of my homemade beer

A crowd-pleaser

Review by Alex L. on 7/15/2006

Pros: With wonderfully delicate malt flavors and hop aromas, this beer exudes German sophistication. It's almost impossible to dislike.

Cons: None, really. Only die-hard fans of over-the-top American craft brews will be underwhelmed.

Unique Flavor

Pros: Friends who are not into home brews found this beer to be very good. I am going to make my second batch.

German Ale

Review by Karl S. on 4/16/2007

Pros: First time brewer of German ale, it was easy to brew and drink! After only 2 weeks in the bottle it is a fine easy to drink full bodied beer that goes great with brats and any salty foods. Nice noble german hops and dark amber color. Not bragging, but it was preferred over Sam's summer ale.

Cons: Not to sound to cliche, but 5 gallons was not enough.
