What's the difference in practical (not the defined BJCP difference)terms? If I were to d a side by side comparison of a well made, to style blonde ale and cream ale, what are the differences that would be most apparent?
I remember reading a long thread about this a while back. Can't remember the specifics. The main point that I got was that Cream Ales have a heavier, or more pronounced, mouth feel (creamier). Beyond that, most folks did not see a whole lot of other differences. I assume a hotter mash temp and some specialty grains to enhance body.
