Default Cream Ale vs Lite Ale ??

I remember drinking Genesee cream ale in my younger days when I lived on the Northeast.

I'd like to brew it. Some retailers offer a cream ale kit but others do not.

What makes a cream ale a cream ale??? How does it differ from a lite ale or an american lite ale?

Thanks

Maize. Or, rarely, rice.

A blonde ale or Kölsch would generally be all-malt.
