Cream Ale Ever wondered how they make cream ale? At the kitchen table, Max pours something into a beer. Max: Cream ale, here we come! Max samples and shakes in disgust: Yuck! Paul: Still not? Max: No. Needs more. Max pours again, then samples again: Ewww! Max: I don't know why, but the more cream I pour in, the worse it tastes! Paul: Oh, no wonder it doesn't work! Bock is a lager, not an ale!
