loved it
Simply amazing, 1 week primary 1 week secondary and 2 weeks bottled and I have only a few left. Goes down smooth, very crisp and lightly hopped. Would definitely brew again, used an English ale yeast as its my favorite and its so clear in the glass. Next time I'm going to secondary with some fruit for the wife. I am a definite dark ale kind of guy but this brew has opened my pallet. Thanks ahs the staff is great

Excellent Session Ale. Kegged and force carbonated to 2.2 volumes, allow to rest for 2 weeks. Serve chilled to 35F. Serve with some ribs and Brisket, excellent back end bitterness to balance the sweetness of the BBQ. Highly recommended.

Was surprised that the extract kit had no specialty grains. But I was anxious to see how a plain extract beer would taste. Was pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out. Definitely needs aging to mellow out the hops flavor. Will do this one again and try some grains in it.

This was my first kit from AHS and the second batch as a nub. It did not disappoint. Great refreshing beer w/ no after taste. I did the extract with the liquid yeast. 12 days in the primary and one week in secondary. Kegged at 25psi for first day, shook it on second day and then dropped it down to 5psi third day. Great carbonation. I will brew again after trying the other kits I already ordered. I wish there was a way to "force age". Happy brewng.

I think this kit is OK. I wasn't impressed overall, but think as others said it would be a great starter kit to do some of your own experimenting with. I'd have to brew it again to see if it comes out the same.

Brewed this one on New Year's Day. Great on its own, but I can also see how it would be a good base kit for experimenting with additional flavorings. My one knock being that it's taking a little longer to condition than I had hoped. Overall, it's a great beer at a great price.

Very nice. Made it to drink during the hot summer months - nice and refreshing. Nothing overly complex going on in this beer, but it's a great beer that even less adventurous beer drinkers (ie. Bud, Miller, Michelob drinkers) will enjoy.

I've used this as a low-cost base for my fruit beers this summer. One blueberry and one strawberry blonde. Both were perfect for the hot weather. And the low cost off the kit offset the cost of the fruit. All were a hit.

This simple recipe is a winner! It's crisp and refreshing and well balanced. My only tweak was a 1/2 oz. hop addition at 10 minutes because I'm a hops lover. A great house brew.

Brewed this one over a month ago with a friend. We decided to experiment and added 3 pounds of honey before going into the primary with it. He calls it "Yolanda's Honey Bunny Blonde" after the Pulp Fiction character. WOW does she kick like a mule! It's turned into more of a braggot than a beer, at 11.7 ABV. It's still a bit harsh, but drinkable. Definite honey aftertaste, a nice warm belly burn afterwards from the high alcohol, but a bit of bitter sting on the back of the tongue for now. After several more months of calming down, she should mellow out some and be a bombshell. After a hard day at the office, it should only take one or two of these honeys to unwind completely.

This beer is also a great starter for flavored beers. I made a Cherry Vanilla Blonde with this that I thought my wife would love and it turned out that the other brewers I hang out with enjoyed it as well. Great beer.

Very nice beer. I brewed this with a friend of mine and its is only 3 and a half weeks in the bottle. It has carbonated up nicely and is very flavorful too. I would reccomend this to anyone looking for a beer that you can and wanna drink several of in a sitting. We choose to do the alcohol boost for this recipe. We did a double brew and also made the same day the AHS Summit IPA that I see is not available now too. I was amazed because even with the IPA around 6.2% ABV The Texas Blonde fermented for a full week too. Its a very clean brew with great flavor too. I would highly encourage anyone to brew this beer, especially for such a great price too. Hoppy Brewing

Excellent beer! I brewed the mini-mash version. 3 weeks in the primary, 3 weeks in bottles. As others stated, its crisp and refreshing, and is a perfect summer brew-its light with just a slight bite to it. The only recommendation I would make is to make sure you let it sit in bottles for at least 3 weeks. I got excited and tried after 10 days, it was flat and bitter. After 2 more weeks, the flavors mellowed out and it matured into an amazing beer. This will absolutely be brewed again!

Brewed this again, plain kit, no fruit. I did deviate from the recipe in that I left it in the primary for 2 weeks, and no secondary. Made this for brother's birthday, so bottled and drank after 9 days. Beer was young in flavor, but still tasty in it's own way. This will age well, but probably wont last that long. This is my unofficial house ale. Affordable, easy, and generally liked by all beer drinkers.

brewed this as a strawberry blonde 2 months back with the alchohol boost and strawberry flavoring. Made a great light, bubbly, almost champagne-like drink for my wife. brewing this again as just the simple mini mash kit. looking forward to seeing what it is like without the strawberries. Would anyone compare this to the new Shiner Light Blonde?

Brewed the extract version. 2 weeks primary, 2 weeks secondary and 3 weeks in bottle. I brewed the AHS homes wheat at the same time and between the two kits I think the grain makes a big difference as well as the sugar added to this kit. This beer is crisp and clean but I think the kits with specialty grains make a better beer. I am very impressed with the service and quality of ingredients I have purchased from AHS. So many beers so little time.

This is my second time brewing this beer (mini mash). This time I let it sit for seven days in primary then transfered it into secondary on top of 6lbs of frozen strawberries. I let it sit on the strawberries for two weeks or usually until the strawberris fall to the bottom of the fermenter. It's an amazing beer my wife loves it. I have to keep this on tap at all times or all hell breaks loose ha. Great brew to add fruit!!!!

All of the AHS kits I have done have been great, but ive got a quick question on this one. I brewed this with LME and the 1% alcohol boost as the base for a HG honey blond. This is the first time where ive gone off and done my own thing outside a recipe. after a week in primary i added (almost) 2 pounds of honey that I pasteurized on the stove, looking for a strong honey flavor and high ABV. its been over a month and the thing is still actively fermenting, like I can see bubbles rising up the side of the carboy. I want to cold crash jello clear and keg this, but i need to make sure that all the sugars are fermented first. any clue whats going on. I might just put it in the far corner of the closet and try to forget about it for a few months...

Great simple beer. I made it into a really good strawberry blonde by adding 36 oz of frozen strawberries during the secondary. I brewed it again without the strawberries and it was equally as good. Keep it on hand and serve it at social gatherings.

Update to prior post: What time can do! Odd "bite" disappeared with a little more aging, resultant beer just as advertised. Overall very smooth, an easy transition for Bud/Coors drinking friends. This one's best in a frosty mug right out of the freezer!

Brewed with US 05 yeast, an additional half pound of rye, and split the hops half at 60 minutes and half at 2. Nice aroma, clear beer, the rye adds a nice bite. Brewed as a mini-mash. If you want to play with different grains or additives, this is a nice, clean beer to use for a base.

WOW what a great beer! only difference i did was add .5oz of Kent Golding hops at 15 mins along with yeast nutrient and brewvint. the finished beer had great carbonation in keg with 12 psi, beautiful lacing and head retention! Body was light but i think its because of the Brewvint, next time i will try using malto-dextrine to help out the body. Definitely one of my favorite beers! will be brewing over and over again! Recipe provides a great start for experimenting with hops and adjunts. all in all an amazing beer especially for the price.

Mini-mash dry DME with dry yeast. Brewed Jan 21st and spent 2 weeks in primary, no secondary. Tasting several bottles each week since. Flavor has improved with age. Very pale gold, smooth, hops resent laid back profile. Exhibited an odd "bite" early on that I hoped would condition out with time. Bite isn't totally undesirable but was not expected from the grain/hop bill. Appears to be grain related not hops, but hasn't mellowed out to comfort yet. Stove-top brewing makes me wonder if temps were too high during mash and extracted unwanted tannins? Brewed Texas Bock shortly after - same ingredients with color additive and minus Vienna base grains. The Bock doesn't possess the same bite, possibly the Vienna? It's pleasant, smooth, refreshing at the end of the day but whether my error or not this batch isn't my cup of tea.

This beer is great, nice and crisp and the Kolsch yeast really shines. I think this is based on Fireman's 4, but honestly, it is better. For the all-grain price, you are going to be hard pressed to make a better beer. Great for the summer. I will certainly make this one again. Fermented at 65 ambient.

AHS, I have brewed this ale several times and my wife loves it. Recently due to a major brain fart while brewing back to back ales I used White Labs English Ale 002 yeast by mistake. Not expecting much I bottled and went on about my business kind of heavy heartedly. People, this turned out to be the best light ale I have ever brewed in my 10 or so years of brewing!! Will now order the 002 with this recipe and never look back. One of the rare times a mistake turned out to benefit me. Thanks AHS

I made a batch of this as my third brew, specifically for my wife who likes lighter beers than the porters and heavies I usually make. After 3 weeks, I was disappointed as it didn't seem to have the blonde smooth taste I was looking for, so I left it to the Mrs. However, after another 2 weeks (5 weeks total) in bottles, the smoothness really came out and it soon became a favorite in the household. This was evidenced by the rapid decrease in the stock! I'm planning on brewing again in the spring to prepare for hotter weather.

This was my first all-grain beer and it's a GREAT starter for that purpose. I'll echo the comments about the effect aging has with this beer. It really does mellow nicely with time in-bottle. There's a 'bite' to it initially (say, prior to 6weeks+ of aging) but it's not unpleasant. I think it's the flaked maize that gives it its bite. I'll definitely do this again, but next time I'm (1) adding a pound of wheat, (2) using hefeweizen-style yeast, and (3) trying some raspberry extract with half the batch (the base recipe for this beer lends itself to a raspberry wheat....and why not experiment? it's so cheap!)
