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.

As ordered and on-time!
I haven't finished brewing it yet, but I'm sure it'll come out great. My first batch came out a little flat but still good. This time I used a yeast that could take a much higher temp. as my apt. is always hot.
I had the same result as a previous reviewer- very bitter aftertaste. The first swig is good but after it goes down the bitterness takes over. I was careful not to squeeze the grains after steeping but still came out bitter.
Was hoping for an exceptional lawnmower beer to end the summer.
So good! Cheers
Very great tasting, I was afraid it was going to be to hoppy but it turned out great
