Smugglers Special Premium Ale is pure Gold

Made this kit as per instructions and it is a real cracker of an ale. Barreled and allowed it to settle and develop for about 8 weeks after initial fermentation and it SO worth the wait. Beautifully clear and amber with super head. Wonderful flavour of well balanced hops and malt. I will be making this again for certain.

My favourite brew

This has to be my favourite of all the bitters that I have brewed. Great flavour, colour and (too) easy to drink!! Much loved by my French wife.

Muntons Smugglers

Living in South West France and unable to buy English bitter I thought i would try home brewing. This was the first brew that I tried and I decided to bottle it. Tried the first bottle after two weeks and was delighted with the results. And each week after that the beer is just getting better and better. One to recommend and very easy to brew.

Tribute look-alike

Full flavoured and easy to brew. Very quick fermentation. Quite a close similarity to St Austell Tribute

Amazing

Well this is only the second "real ale" kit I have made. I'm used to drinking doom bar here in Cornwall and was looking for something with a little more to it. Its been conditioning for 3 weeks now and is a real easy drinker. The instructions were easy and straight forward. I had no trouble hitting the FG unlike others. I made it up to be a bit stronger so I didnt need to drink quite so much(6.2) but it is still smooth with no alcohol taste. will definately make it again.

Muntons smugglers ale

Unfortunately this kit didn't live upto expectations of previous reviews. The kit was brewed as per instructions but after 2 weeks it stuck at 1020 and despite every effort including a warmer room and re stirring the wort it remained at 1020 for a further 2 weeks. In the end I put into a corni and 4 weeks later it has still failed to clear. There are several people on the forum who have had similar problems with muntons kits and it appears their yeast is to blame. Despite contacting muntons about this and them admitting that the kit is prone to sticking they haven't done anything about it and I'm £25 out of pocket. I have been brewing beer for several years and will be staying clear of muntons kits from now on

Muntons Premium Gold Smugglers Special Premium Ale

I last did home brewed beer 25 years ago in Bristol, it was at best a bit iffy. However obviously the quality of the kits has improved tremendously. The beer was superb as good as a decent real ale from a good English pub

No brainer, fantastic ale!

So easy to make even I did it like a pro! The results were delicious and the beer continued to mature and get better throughout the consumption period. Having tried a few ales now, this one delivers the biggest bang for your buck, everytime!
