Im now convinced Lion Dark Ale is one of the superior beer kits you can buy for reasonable cost.
It improves if you use a different yeast. Im currently supping on one of these which was bottled 25th April, and its one of the best beers Ive made; no bitterness, smooth as silk, and very moorish.
I will try Lion Lager next with a different yeast and addons.
Do you remember off the top of your head what yeast you used with it?
