Recipe: OBK Cream Ale

An ale version of the classic American lager style. Pale straw in colour, this style of beer is light and crisp. A smooth mouthfeel and higher carbonation leads to a thirst quenching finish. Faint malt notes can be found in the aroma, as well as sweet, corn-like aromas. A low bitterness beer and moderate maltiness, neither the hops or malt will prevail in the taste. Subtle fruity esters can be detected dependent on fermentation temperature.
