Light, but not laughable

Review by surinder on 3/29/2013

If you enjoy most commercially produced American beers, I'm sorry. Seriously, you might get a kick out of this light, pale, well-balanced and flavorful Summer ale. I've made this a couple times for group gatherings and it always disappears. The flavor stands up well to a good chilling, but doesn't overpower food or conversation. Folks who are new to better beer really like this light ale. Production is easy and the product is ready quickly, though a few weeks of aging produces a clear, crisp and complex beverage. A great picnic or work bee drink.

refreshing and perfect summer brew!

Simple yet refined summer brew. Good balance of hops and light drinkable beer on a hot summer afternoon.

Great smooth light beer!

Excellent Light beer for the summer. Easy to brew and has a great light, crisp finish :-)

Dry hopped with peppercorns

Review by Bruce on 6/21/2014

We like the summer ale very much, this year we dry hopped with peppercorns hoping to make it similar to our favorite Michigan microbrew summer beer, Short's Nicie Spicie. We are very pleased with the result. There's a very subtle peppery finish to add to what is already a great summer beer.

Odd finishing taste

I have been brewing for over 15 years and this is the first time I was disappointed in a kit from Williams. The aftertaste was horrible. I poured the entire 5 gallons down the drain.
