16oz can, from Big Red Liquors in Indianapolis. Shared with caterwaul and kammeraj. Bottom of the can reads "RALLY BEER 14094". Clear orange color. Thin off-white / khaki head. Leaves good bits of lace. Good caramel bready malt, some light sweet corn type things. Light spicy, crisp hop flavor to it. Moderate bitter, moderate sweet taste. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Kind of a good creamy texture, easy drinking... Caterwaul comments on how nearly all Sun King beers have this sort of easy-drinking and texture, and yeah, they pretty much do... Including this one... Good satisfying stuff. Would indeed be great to enjoy with food... Especially ball park food

16 oz can to pint. Looks good for the style; a transparent light copperish orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes malty and lightly toasty with notes of lager yeast. Nice and smooth on the palate. A solid example of the style.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 16oz can 4/12/14 (Payless Liquors-Indianapolis)-Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma of malt and sweetness. Taste of three danger with some caramel and toffee on three back end. Not my favorite style but tasty.

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Fruity aroma, light spice, and plenty of caramel. Mostly malty flavor, caramel, a touch of fruitiness, light spicy and grassy hop character. Not bad.

This is pretty decent for a lager. Take your typical lager, add a bit of hops, get rid of a bit of the annoying qualities, and here you have it.

Amber pour with an off white head. A good balance of malts and hops but I would have hoped for a little more on the hop side. Easy to drink and a nice beer for a ball game.
