I haven't tried this one, but I brewed their clone of Pete's Wicked Ale, and it tastes just like the real deal, to me. Anchor Steam Liberty Ale is delicious. I say, go for it.

I'll be brewing AHS's Irish Red Ale some time this week. My extract kit arrived today. Looking forward to that!

I did a california common clone from AHS, drank the first two last night, came out real nice. Good blend of maltiness with a moderately bitter bite.

I don't know about the kit, but if he has the recipe posted, we can compare it. I have a pretty accurate Liberty Ale recipe saved.

Anchors beers are all pretty simple recipes. Its probably just some 2-row, a lbs or 2 of munich, northern brewer and cascade hops, chico yeast.
og 1.060(ish)
ibu 50-60

That is a great IPA. It was the first one available in Oklahoma. Only problem is it's about $8, while I can get Bridgeport for $6.39.

Oh and as a point of clarification and not to be an EAC, but it's the Anchor brewing company, not Anchor Steam. That's just one of their beers.

Slightly off topic... some of you may notice that AHS's version of Pete's beers are no longer listed. They can email you the recipe for their version but cannot sell the kits due to a request from a lawyer at Pete's. I got the recipe info for AHS's version of Pete's Red Rush and just received all the ingredients yesterday. I'll be brewing that up this weekend.
