Picked this up cheap on ebay. Anyone tried it? Got some fuggles spare in the freezer so was just going to add as a dry hop to tart it up a bit.

Having received the kit and looked for reviews elsewhere, I have suspicions that this is a re-packaged Wherry

1. Wilko no longer sell it
2. Packaging is identical bar the colour
3. it also comes with a measly 6g sachet of yeast

....I guess there's only one way to find out.

It's the same as Wherry!, got a few along with the Golden Ale for £12 a while back in the sale, the Golden is also a norfolk brew I've heard.

forgot to update, cheers for the reminder! I dry hopped with 50g of fuggles and it's now a very nice pint.

I've noticed that Wilko don't sell it anymore, but still stock the Wherry.
