Pride Of London Porter - ABV 5.2%
Perfect hop bitterness balanced with the smooth character of the chocolate and roasted malts.
Makes 40 Pints - Just Add Water
The UK is steeped in brewing history and is home to its own unique style of beer that is now imitated the world over. Along with the original powerhouses of commercial brewing there has been a recent increase in the number of fantastic micro-breweries that are now carrying the torch of creative brewing. Festival Premium Ale kits pay homage to some great beers that in our opinion are truly outstanding examples of what the UK has to offer.
With careful research, help and knowledge from professional brewers, Festival Premium Ale Kits enable you to recreate examples of some of the UKs best loved beers, all within the comfort of your own home. Festival Premium Ale Kits use only the very highest quality liquid malt extracts (3kg per kit) and genuine brewers yeast strains (all individually suited to each style of beer). Festival Premium Ale Kits also contain hop pellets and priming sugar. The hop pellets are simply added halfway through fermentation infusing flavour and aroma into the finished beer resulting in a beer with more hop character than ever before. The precisely measured addition of priming sugar ensures the correct level of carbonation is achieved for each particular style of beer.
Each kit contains only the finest quality ingredients and easy to follow step-by-step instructions (Each kit makes 40 pints) making Festival Premium Ale Kits the UKs most comprehensive and complete premium liquid malt extract beer kit ever produced!
To help with the common question 'what should my beer look like?' on the front of each Festival kit there is a picture of a pint glass representing the true and final colour of the beer. Another really useful idea is the 'tasting panel' on the front of the kit, giving a description of how the beer should look, smell and taste. There is also a hop bitterness guide with the varieties of aroma of hops used to give an idea of hop strength. For those who want to store and dispense their beer from a barrel, the pump clip design on the side of the box has been specifically made large enough to cut out and fix to your beer barrel to clearly show what you have in the barrel.
Check out the video guide to the left showing the making of the Festival Pride Of London kit.

We use Parcelforce and DPD for our courier deliveries and the parcel usually needs to be signed for. If for any reason you are out or unable to take the delivery, the couriers may attempt to leave your parcel with a neighbour for you and put a card through your door. If they are unable to deliver the parcel, when possible it will be taken to your local Royal Mail sorting office or Post Office, or they will re-attempt delivery the next working day for you. A calling card will be left with details of where the parcel is. Estimated time slots will be introduced soon to help with delivery. You can enter an alternative shipping address at the checkout such as your place of work, etc, if you know you will be out, or we can add a delivery note to your parcel such as 'Please leave with a neighbour' or 'Please leave in porch' if you email us any specific delivery instructions after placing the order and we are more than happy to add them to your parcel for you. Parcelforce and DPD will follow any instructions whenever possible but it is at the discretion of the delivery driver and cannot be guaranteed. Orders left in a place specified by the customer are at the customers own risk.

Great head, foam is light brown and creamy. *Aroma: Strong chocolate, coffee and hops. *Taste: "Thick" body with lots of chocolate & coffee favours and some spicy notes. Good bitterness and long lasting pleasant after-taste. The alcohol is also present :-) This kit is more then only box with some malt extract, sugar and yeast. They provide also dry hop pellets, bottling (prime) sugar and a filter bag! Get yourself a kit! What a beer!
I won this on HBO. It is a wonderful smooth bitter chocolate beer.
