A good beer to cook with!
So the big thing is that the color isn't right. It's more of an amber, which is a problem for a light ale. While I went the DME route and it's only 5lbs at that, it's darker than you'd expect. Just screams "homebrew". Really needs ultra-light DME, and carapils instead of caramel 15, hopping is spot-on BUT it's a bit heavy handed. Thankfully I used Omega tropical IPA yeast, which fermented this out real nice, otherwise it might be cloying. Haven't received any accolades or glowing response from friends and family. I've mostly been using it for cooking, beer brats and chicken brines. It's beer but I wouldn't brew it again. Kind of a bummer because I really wanted some new to put into rotation that was on the lighter side.

Darker and Sweeter than I Thought
To me a "light Ale" is Bud Light. But this is my first home brew. It is slightly lighter in color than 805. It also has a sweetness to it that is a little too sweet for me personally. It does taste good though and is considered "delicious" by those whom have tasted it. I know they aren't just saying it to be nice as they go for round 3 and 4. it certainly has a lot of flavor for a light beer.

Light Ale
I don't normally drink this type of beer but decided to make it for a party I was having with all of them being Bud Light drinkers. This beer went over very well with all of them. A nice light beer that is very easy to drink and actually has some flavor to it.

Pretty good for an extract kit.
Haven't done an extract kit in awhile, but this turned out very good and my friends loved it. Told them it was my own recipe.

Love it!
I've made two batches of this kit and everyone that prefers a lighter brew has raved about it! I presently have a batch in the fermenter with1 oz additional Cascade hops. I will split that batch in half and will add Grapefruit zest in one for an even more intense cltris aroma. This beer will always occupy 1 of my 3 taps.

Good replacement for the big beer names
I've brewed 6 batches so far and this is not one I would normally have purchased but we were having a family get together and they are all Bud Light drinkers so I thought I would try this one to persuade them with something different. Only problem was I only had two weeks before the party so it spent one week in the fermentor and one week in the bottle which is the quickest I've ever done a batch from start to finish. I put a case in the refrigerator the morning of the party and when we opened the first one I was surprised to see it was very well carbonated already and everyone loved it. It is a very light, low alcohol beer with just a very slight citrus flavor. So slight in fact that it was even hard to notice it was there if you didn't really try to taste it. So overall it is a good replacement for those Bud Light drinkers who really don't like to have any flavor in their beer. This has some but just a hint but it is very drinkable.
