A homemade light beer, fits the bill of a cream ale. I'm purposely making this brew not very interesting. Just a bit of hop aroma and hopefully a bit of malt flavor, ferment it dry and crisp and give it medium-high carbonation.

I'm going to do this for a few reasons 1)just to see how it turns out, 2)I have some homebrew to drink when it's 90+, 3)I know a few people who typically don't enjoy my homebrews, who would enjoy this brew, and 4)See how much better this tastes over BMC even though ABV and IBUs will be fairly similar. I'm guessing it will be noticablely better.

What do you think?
