I make a very popular cream ale, and I am about to make another big batch, I usually use nottingham or US-05 fermented at 65 degrees and I always get a very clean ale.

I have two 7 gram (gold) packs of Coopers Ale Yeast in my freezer. Does anybody know if this yeast will give me a nice cream ale? I am afraid to ruin my cream ale, but I would like to use that yeast up....

Yep, that yeast should work just fine, granted that it's still good of course. It's a neutral ale yeast just like Notty or S-05, but make sure to ferment at the low end of it's temp range to keep esters down.
