Product Details
An ale version of the light, fizzy American lager style, cream ale is a specialty of the eastern US. Our Cream Ale is medium-light bodied and smooth, gold in color and low in bitterness; the specialty grain blend adds some complexity with a clean, sweet malt profile and a hint of buttered toast in the aroma and flavor. A homebrewed “lawnmower beer” is pretty hard to beat as a summertime thirst-quencher.

Smooth beer.
This beer has a very smooth taste and a full, somewhat malty body with a slightly bready taste and a darker color than most cream ales I've brewed before. Very drinkable and the single Cluster hop addition attracts those who aren't hop crazy. I'll brew this again.

Northern Brewer produces the BEST products!
I had been making wine for 15 years and since I had all the equipment necessary I decided to try brewing too. Its taken a little while to learn the ropes and that would NOT have occurred with Mike W at Northern Brewer and several of the outstanding customer-service-oriented Brew-masters there. I've lost count of how many wonderful kits I've ordered so far over the years but in EVERY instance the products arrived in perfect order ready for me to delve into my newest therapeutic hobby :). Northern Brewer is likely to become very addictive.

really good after 3 weeks in the keg
would recommend this beer it was just our second brew and we rushed it a bit to much. After three weeks in the keezer it was well carbonated and the taste is really good. Will be a good one to do again when we have more beer and not so anxious to get it on tap. Very clear and a good finish!

Great Beer to Add Fruit to
I purchased this just on a whim with a 3 kit purchase not know what I would do with it. I don't really care for light beers or non hoppy beers. But I have been trying to make a great Paw Paw beer for a year or so and Last year used a Pale Ale and did not care for how it came out. Paw Paw is Tough to come by or expensive to purchase so I tried it in this cream ale and it was fantastic. Will brew this again and again.

Decent beer
This brew is definitely a good summertime lawnmower beer, but I think that classifying it as a cream ale may be a bit misleading. I typically envision cream ales as having a good amount of flaked corn (or maize), or perhaps even lactose. This particular brew's grain bill was fairly similar to a pilsener, with a standard American ale yeast. If you're looking for a good cream-style beer, I recommend adding some flaked corn for sweetness and body. Some vanilla bean and a good cream ale yeast couldn't hurt either.

Absolutely delicious!
Wow! This may become my new go-to summer brew. Light, yet flavorful; not hoppy, but zesty back notes; satisfying but relatively low ABV. I could drink this all summer!

Getting started
No review yet. I am still accumulating the "stuff" to brew an all grain recipe. Looking forward to the process. Have done lots of homework.

Creamsicle Ale
Threw in some sweet orange peel and vanilla bean hardening back to those days in the summer with an Orange Creamcicle from the ice cream man. Just kegged and waiting for carbonation. Looking good so far.

Has anyone added vanilla bean to this recipe? I'm going to try it out and was thinking 2 whole beans added into primary.
Doug O on Jan 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I often add vanilla and change the malt bill around just a bit, I would recommend more than 2 beans, I usually add 6 during secondary after they soak in Maker's Mark during primary. Could be overkill for some, but I love vanilla and find it mellows out nicely in the bottle.
Hi, what is the abv of this beer and final gravity ? I'm having a stuck fermentation at 1.020 and want to know how far off I am. Thanks
J O on Dec 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: A typical final gravity for that kit is 1.010 - 1.014.
I am interested in trying the recipes with the orange and cream ale. I was wondering how much orange peel or orange blossom honey should be added to a 5 gallon batch?
C O on Jul 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Orange blossom honey, despite the name, does not taste like oranges, more like 'baby aspirin' once fermented. The orange peel comes in 1 ounce packages which we feel is the perfect amount to get a nice character in the beer. I liek to use 1/2 ounce for a light compliment flavor and might be safer for a first try...less is sometimes more. Add near the end of the boil.
