A perfect blend of vanilla and bourbon notes make this cream ale irresistible.
Mild, pale, light-bodied ale, made using a warm fermentation (top or bottom) and cold lagering. hop bitterness and flavor range from very low to low. hop aroma is often absent. sometimes referred to as cream ales, these beers are crisp and refreshing. pale malt character predominates. caramelized malt character should be absent. a fruity or estery aroma may be perceived. diacetyl and chill haze should not be perceived. sulfur character and/or sweet corn-like dimethylsulfide (dms) should be extremely low or absent from this style of beer.
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.
