    Great beer kit-Just sampling my first one tonight!
    Tastes very, very close to the can versions i have sampled, mine turned out to be not quite as bitter though.
    Highly recommended and very drinkable.
    5 Stars!

  2. Paul Hewson (verified owner)

    I like the idea of providing two cans of the official beer with this recipe so you can compare and contrast it to your efforts. However, it worked out way too bitter when I brewed it. I am hanging on to it as bitterness subsides over time and I’m hoping in about as year it will be drinkable. Six months in and it has some way to go.
