Light American Wheat Ale Or Lager With Yeast

  • Hero oberon   Bell's Oberon
  • H   Barrel Of Monks Single In Havana

This beer can be made using either ale or lager yeast. it can be brewed with 30 to 75 percent wheat malt, and hop rates may be low to medium. hop characters may be light to moderate in bitterness, flavor and aroma. fruity-estery aroma and flavor are typical but at low levels however, phenolic, clove-like characteristics should not be perceived. color is usually straw to light amber, and the body should be light to medium in character. diacetyl should not be perceived. because this style is served with yeast the character should portray a full yeasty mouthfeel and appear hazy to very cloudy. chill haze is also acceptable. yeast flavor and aroma should be low to medium but not overpowering the balance and character of malt and hops. these beers are typically served with the yeast in the bottle, and are cloudy when served.

Why Only Craft Beers?

The number one reason is craft beer tastes better than the "beer water" that is mass produced and mass marketed by the big beer companies. Craft beer tastes better because craft brewers spend their time focusing the quality of their beer rather than focusing on their marketing campaigns and stock prices.

Oh yeah! Craft beers can pack a punch. Most craft beers range from 5-10% ABV, but some can reach 20%, 30%, and even 40% ABV.
