Cream Ale Extract Beer Recipe Kit
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.

Great product! Second time purchasing a recipe kit, only this time my fix drops were outside of the bag. I called customer support and they said they would send me a new pack of fizz drops.
This is a great standard to always have around for those who aren’t IPA heads, but interesting enough for anyone to drink. Works great with almost any yeast, Hornindal Kveik makes it a “bigger” beer, richer tasting, but differences between say, Wyeast 1072 and Safele 05 are negligible. The dry yeast works great and gives a crisper beer, liquid yeast brings out fruitier esters, and gives slightly richer mouth feel.
First beer I ever brewed, my friends still love it. The perfect “lawnmower” beer, as you can drink a few without getting tipsy.
All my friends and neighbors love my Cream Ale. With liquid yeast, I get outstanding results.
It's my favorite brew kit.
