The first one

Review by Erik on 9/21/2007

Pros: This was my first ever batch. New to home brewing. After my first taste of this one, all I could do was smile. That smile was on my face for a week. Super easy to brew and the taste was amazing. Could not have asked for a better first brew session.

Cons: Only one thing. I ran out.

Not what I expected.

Review by Craig on 5/14/2007

Pros: Easy. Anybody that can boil water can brew this beer. Very basic kit.

Cons: I've been brewing for a number of years and wanted to try a good old fashioned ale. I read the reviews and now I'm sorry that I believed the 9 and 10 stars that the previous people rated this beer. This beer tastes a little like Coors which I'm not a big fan of. For $32.90 I expected a lot more. There are much better kits out there than this one.

1st Attempt at Homebrewing

Review by tzer23 on 3/26/2006

Pros: I can't believe I actually made this! It was easy to make and it tastes awesome. The thing that appeals to me most is that it tastes so unbelievably fresh. A flavorful ale that has a nice lite hoppy finish. This beer would be good for someone who is just starting to drink "real beer" but doesn't want something too overpowering like an IPA or a stout. Thanks William's! Now it's time to brew a Hefe!

Cons: The only con I can think of is the small amount of sediment in the bottom each bottle but I'm getting the hang of properly pouring into a glass and leaving it in the bottle. Also, I will move to secondary fermenter next time around as this should help the sediment issue as well.

the best home brew you will like very much.
