The classic American Cream Ale: Medium-light bodied and smooth, gold in color and low in bitterness - a homebrewed “lawnmower beer.
If you enjoyed Liberty Cream Ale or California Steam, you'll love this kit!
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.

Haven’t brewed it yet
First time Brewing this style Cream Ale. Most of these come with flaked corn for the cream head and smooth flavor. I used a lb of cooked corn grits added to the mash and I also split up the hops during the boil. 2/3 at initial boil and the rest at 15 min > flameout. Very smooth, good hop flavor and leaves you looking for the next bottle. I bottle with 1/2 Ltr grolsch cap lock. Next brew is another Hefeweizen.
I made this using a Speidel Brewmeister. Pretty good beer but has a weird hint of silage in the aroma.
I was a little disappointed that this kit wasn’t as smooth as most Cream Ales I have tasted before.
