    Is that a new one in their range? I have never even heard of that kit before

    I've not brewed any kits for about a year, but if this one is like the others in the Festival range, it'll be lovely.

    I've made all of the old kits and enjoyed every one, my favourite was the Summer Glory Ltd edition, not sure if they still do that or not. Enjoyed that one so much I've tried to replicate it but not been very successful so far.

    Good choice! I bottled one of these about a month ago and I've just started cracking into it. It's absolutely fantastic - lovely, clean taste with a refreshing hoppiness. Possibly the best kit I've done in three years of homebrewing.

    I'm drinking mine at the moment. It's a really nice hoppy summer pale ale, but from the blurb and packaging I was expecting something unusual. Don't let that observation put you off, it's similar to Golden Stag which I really like, it just not as different as I was expecting.
