I brewed this as an extract with specialty grains with the recommended Danstar dry yeast in early December 2015. I kegged it after three weeks and it has been in the keg an addtional month. Very nutty, malty, low hops. Nice session beer. I have not done a side-by-side tasting with Newcastle, but tastes similar. I am pleased with the results, though I have been more impressed with other AHS kits.
This extract was my first attempt at homebrewing in almost 10 years. I wish I could say that I haven't lost my touch, but I'm pretty sure the simplicity of the recipe saved me. A very good clone, a couple of my friends only picked this out of a blind taste test against the namesake because they said it "tastes the same, only fresh"
I had not tried the original until about 3-4 months back. I did and thought this would be a good beer to try and make. I did very good. Some of those who frequent the Pubs may even say Spot on. Good color, very similar in taste and nose. If you think this should be Hoppy, I didn't think the original was either. Would do so again. Opened first bottle after 1 week as a test, because I was using it in a cheese dip, so had to drink the rest. Waitied about three weeks and was very satisfied. This was my first AH kit and was very pleased.
I think this is an excellent beer. It is one I try to always keep on tap.
I did the Liquid malt extract version of this beer. I used safeale Dry yeast. I followed the directions to and fermented at about 68 Degrees for one week in primary and then about 2 weeks in the secondary. I bottled this beer and waited about a month to drink. I can honestly say this is one of the best beers I have ever made. It has a nice crisp taste and does taste like fresh newcastle. I will buy the allgrain version next
