By far one of my favorite styles. The Cream Ale was developed when German brewers began opening lager breweries in the United States. The established ale brewers needed a beer that could compete. Cream Ales are crisp and delicious; the perfect balance of malt and hops.
Ferment cooler with an ale yeast like a Kölsch or Nottingham strain. These strains do a little better in the 58-61 degree range. Enjoy!
