Cream Ales were developed in response to the American Lager. They are brewed at warm fermentation temperatures with ale or lager yeasts and are either cold conditioned afterwards or blended with a lager. The flavor is light, crisp, and refreshing with hops playing a very minor role in the aroma and flavor. Corn and rice adjuncts are common in this style and are frequently detected in the moderately sweet aroma and flavor. The color is typically pale or light golden with ample carbonation.
