You can make this a pretty good beer by ditching the Mr Beer yeast and using S-04 dry yeast.

I made some decent Mr Beer kits by doing it that way many years ago when I started brewing

ETA: I didn't realize Mr Beer had some all-malt kits without the booster. This one should be pretty good with both cans of extract and no booster.

I've used iot before, and it turned out great! Like stated tho, don't use booster, use two cans of the malt extract. I used the yeast supplied, but I'm sure the S-04 would do a better job.
