Product details

One of the only beer styles truly born in the USA, this classic American Cream Ale is medium-light bodied and smooth, gold in color and low in bitterness.

Cream Ales played a brief, but shining role in American beer history. As crisp, clean pilsners gained popularity in the US thanks to the influence of German immigrants, American ale-makers responded with a style that mimicked the lighter-tasting lagers sweeping the nation. Though nowhere near as wildly popular, Cream Ales remained an easy-drinking specialty style in the Eastern US for years to come.

Like the original, our Cream Ale is medium-bodied and smooth on the palate, gold in color and low in bitterness. Custom-built with quality ingredients, the recipe kit includes a specialty grain blend that adds some complexity with a clean, sweet malt profile and a hint of buttered toast in the aroma and flavor. A homebrewed "lawnmower beer," Cream Ale is pretty hard to beat as a summertime thirst-quencher.

Brew kits always on the mark!

Have brewed this Cream Ale three times now, and it is excellent. Friends, neighbors, and brew club members love it. Knocked it up a notch with sweetened and unsweetened peaches in secondary. Will keg it in two weeks. Should be delish.

Great tasting when you don't screw it up

I still consider myself an amateur brewer. I bought two of these kits at the same time. The first one seemed like a normal brew. I kegged it after 2 weeks, carbonated it and let it sit in Kegerator for 2 weeks. I did use Priming sugar in it. This 1st batch never turned out. It was sweet and syrupy so I threw it away. Then it hit me, you forgot to flush the keg with CO2 before filling it with the beer. I am sure I am right about this. I brewed the 2nd batch, let it ferment for 2 weeks, flushed the keg with CO2 before filling it. Let it sit under carbonation for 2 weeks, did not put priming sugar in this batch. Just got to drink it this week and it's FANTASTIC! I am buying more of these kits.

Simple, almost foolproof, versatile recipe

This is about as good a result as you'll get without doing all the work yourself. The ingredients produce a very smooth batch with very little effort on your part. And it's a very good starting-point for experimenters as well. I've tinkered with the recipe and come up with a pretty good rauchbier -- and it's the one I always use as a base for my once-a-year jalapeño ale.

Awesome Homebrew!!!

I brewed this uber-simple kit for a local Homebrew competition using a pound of lacrosse to give it a vanilla finish. It is froghair smooth. Like simply placing a dry fly on a river’s surface as softly as a butterfly’s landing. I never intend to win but it’s awesome to see people’s reaction when they try different Homebrew flavors & profiles.
