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 flavor but had issues with carbonation. When I added an additional 1 oz of priming sugar in the next batch it seemed to correct itself. Not sure if it was the brew or the brewer that led to lack of carbonation.
Just as a Cream Ale should be. Sweet tones and a nice light ale finish. I will be brewing this kit many more times!
The cream ale has a smooth taste and great flavor. It was rather easy and simple to make.
Very goof tasting, I'm sure that I will brew it again
Excellent brew, have made it several times
