Pale Straw colour. Golden crisp beer popular in Northern Europe. Light and refreshing. Crisp pale malt aromas with a hint of spicy hops, clean pale malt flavours and a light-bodied palate that finishes with obvious hop bitterness. Perfect for summer drinking. Runs about 5% alcohol with a 2.2lb sugar addition. You can optionally add an ounce of hops (Cascade, Saaz, or Tettnanger) to the boil, or add 8oz MaltoDextrine for more sweetness and a thicker mouthfeel. These items are available separately, search my Store.
This kit makes a similar but much better beer than Heineken, Grolsch, or Stella. This is the typical “drink all afternoon” beer, working well on its own or with a bowl of popcorn or plate of BarBQ. Refreshing!
Muntons’s master brewers have developed this distinctively European style beer using the finest 2-row barley and select hops to create a lightly coloured beer with a fresh, crisp finish. This premium beer is light in style with a fresh clean taste, ideally served ice-cold with a wedge of lime or lemon.
The Muntons Premium range was developed for the original four kits in the early days of English home-brewing. Formulations for this range have purposely not been changed since they were first developed back in the early 1970’s – a tremendous heritage and a proven track record. The Premium range allows home beer makers to experience flavours from around the world in their own homes, enjoyably and economically. Once again the Muntons Premium range is made entirley from 100% hopped malt extract with no inferior or cheap adjuncts such as barley syrup. There is one notable exception to this however – the American Style Light Beer. To emulate the light delicate character of this popular beer style it was necessary to include in the kit a percentage of liquid sugar. This is the only beer kit in the extensive Muntons ranges made from anything other than 100% hopped malt extract.
The Muntons Connoisseurs Range has been formulated to brew strong beers emulating beer styles from around the world. Each Beer kit contains 1.8kg of 100% hopped malt extract – and in common with all Muntons beer kits, no cheap barley syrup is used in their manufacture. With the Connoisseurs range you will be able to experience taste sensations including Wheat Beer modelled on the best German Weizen style beers, Bock – the distinctive dark lager of Bavaria, Export Stout – a classic full-bodied hoppy stout and a wide range of other style beers. The Connoisseurs range offers the home beer-maker the chance to make premium strength beers. Excellent value.
