Gotta brew more quickly! Review by Robert
Brewed this a couple months ago as the Ale version using dry yeast all per kit instructions. Turned out amazing, everyone I have had try it has love it. Some of my family that are drinkers of the texas famous Bock beer said they like this beer better. And it shows, as all 48 bottles are now GONE. Even some friends at work that I gave samples to all said it was something they want more of! This was maybe my 5th or 6th brew, done a few since this that are still fermenting, but this one is being done today, TWO BATCHES, to keep up with demand and it's rapid disappearing nature! You wont be disappointed with this recipe! (Posted on 1/5/2020)
2nd place Review by Caleb
Mast this as an ale and it’s good. I entered it in a local brew competition (Emmetsburg Iowa) and it got 2nd place when entered as a Dark Mild, BJCP 13A. (Posted on 12/1/2017)
Good for Beginners Review by Glenn
This was one of my early attempts. It turned out well but I never repeated it. Perhaps my goals changed once my confidence was up. I would recommend this to someone just getting started and is wanting to explore different styles. (Posted on 3/15/2017)
Awesome beer!!! Review by Brandon
I am new to brewing, and this was my second beer to make. It turned out so clear I could read a magazine through the glass. I enjoyed it very much, but my friends really liked it. Liked it so much the keg didn't last long. I will be brewing this again and will have to keep it in stock at all times. (Posted on 8/9/2016)
Crowd Pleaser! Review by Kyle
This beer is very inexpensive for an extract kit and can be ready quickly. Mine turned out great with 1 week in primary and 2 in secondary, then kegged (I used the dry yeast). Not a "traditional" bock, more of an easy drinking beer with a slight malt profile very similar to a popular bock made in Texas. An excellent choice for pleasing your friends who aren't craft beer aficionados; this is a great gateway beer to more complex ones. This kit turned out exactly as I expected from the description. If you are looking for a 7.0+ ABV, thick, malty, more traditional bock this probably isn't the kit for you, but if you like the description you will be well pleased! (Posted on 8/9/2016)
