Style Overview: 
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.
