Nice light ale with a hop finish

Review by Ken Byington on 5/14/2011

Nice and light with a little surprise hop finish. You won't find a commercial beer of this style as good as this one. Great summer beer.

Great kit, but flavor wasn't quite what I was expecting.

Review by Jason on 6/12/2011

This was the first homebrew I've ever made, and the kit couldn't have been easier to use. My only concern was the very low ABV, and I had read here on the FAQ's that a pound of dextrose would kick it up a bit with minimal impact on the end product, so I went that route. I bottled 12 12oz bottles and kegged the rest. Because of the split batch, I used Cooper's drops for the bottles and 1/3 cup of the priming sugar for the keg (I didn't want to go the force-carb route). Both turned out perfectly and unlike some other posts here, there was no issue with over-carbonation (if anything, maybe slightly under-carbed). My only complaint was the final taste. I don't know if the added dextrose impacted the flavor, but it's a touch sweet, with a slight floral hint. Unfortunately, these are two things I'm not personally fond of. BUT, it was still quite good and many people have enjoyed it. It is light and refreshing, to be sure. So if that description fits you're style, you'll LOVE it.

summer ale

Review by ALAN on 5/27/2012

I have brewed about 6 different beer batches from Williams brewing and hands down I have gotten the most compliments from your summer ale than all the other beers that I have brewed. I will brew it again for sure!

Clean and Clear

Review by Brian on 8/8/2012

I've been brewing Williams kits off and on for a few years, and this has been my most successful yet. Also, the first homebrew I've made that comes out almost perfectly clear with no filtering! It's a great tasting beer for warm weather, and pleasantly light on the alcohol. Will definitely re-order this one.
