Known for their crisp, refreshing taste and their light golden tint, Cream Ales go through a longer cold conditioning or lagering following it's primary fermentation stage. This process reduces unwanted fruity esters to give you a cleaner flavor palate. Oftentimes, corn, rice, or other adjuncts are also utilized to give it a lighter body and flavor.

My hometown brewery was famous for their cream ale. Looking forward to giving this one a try in time for summer. Should be light and refreshing without the extra work that lager yeasts entail.
Second purchase from Homebrew Supply - really like the service & high quality ingredients. Expecting to become a regular.
I have not yet made this recipe. However, I was disappointed in how long it took to ship from your warehouse. My last order shipped exactly when you said.
Came with everything I needed to brew and ended up with a great beer. Only issue I had was the ice pack for the yeast wasn't cold when I got the package, but still worked fine.
