William's Honey Cream Ale started out as a traditional mild, sweetish American-style cream ale made with corn as well as barley. The hop flavor is on the mild side, with just enough to balance the delicate pale malt and corn flavors. The addition of our unpasteurized orange blossom honey (at the end of the boil to preserve aroma) is what gives this beer an added depth of flavor and complexity, the honey increasing the body, sweetness, and complexity without overwhelming the delicate hop crispness.

Includes 8 pounds of our blended malt extract and orange blossom honey, selected aromatic hops, 125ml of liquid yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.052. Ease of Brewing: Beginner.

Outstanding beer

Review by Kirby F. on 6/27/2008

Pros: This is a truly great beer. Light, and refreshing. Perfect for a hot day. If you pay attention, you'll notice the orange blossom honey leaves a subtle orange flavor. I wish I had made 2 batches, because I'm going to run out pretty fast.

Cons: None

Nice Aftertaste

Review by James R. on 6/28/2008

Pros: This is a tasty light summer beer. The honey and corn flavors come through nicely. It really has a nice creamy aftertaste. It earned high marks from my co-workers at a party yesterday...

Cons: None

This is a very tasty brew.

Review by shawn c. on 8/8/2008

Pros: This is the first William's kit that I have brewed and I am quite satisfied with the results. This ale pairs well with BBQ and grilled foods and it is a nice beer for people that prefer their beers a little lighter. The honey included in the kit is very flavorful and adds a perfect amount of summer sweetness to this crisp, balanced ale. This will be brewed again.

Honey Cream Ale

Review by Gregg S. on 2/6/2009

Pros: This was by far the most popular beer I brewed in 2008. A very nicely balanced beer with just the right amount of honey flavor. Went down like a dream and was fantastic after two weeks aging at room temp in my basement with an additional two to three weeks lagering in the fridge. Be patient and let it age, you won't be disappointed.

Cons: None
