(aka Indians’ Lager) This Munich Helles has a balanced malt flavor that finishes with crisp noble hops. The combination makes this beer perfect for a day at the ballpark or a summer cookout.

Copper color with taller, stable, ecru colored head. Very dry smelling, in other words not a whole lot going on here. Very mild caramel and hint of floral hops. Mild pale to toasted malt flavors. Hints of wood and touch of esters. A little too meek for it’s own good. Has heft, but not flavor or depth. A heavy mild amber lager.

Can courtesy Fratto. Pours a clear heavy orange color. Little head. Aroma is syrupy, sweet and Apple juice. Flavor is bitter, weird bread and a huge bitter finish. Looks like the Indians are having a tough year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy light copper with a decent sized, tight foamy head. Aroma is light grains and a bit of malt. Flavor of grassy hops up front fading to sweet malt. Creamy tingle of hops in the finish wraps it up. Nice medium bodied smooth palate makes this one an easy drinker too.

From a 16 oz can into a d’Achouffe tulip glass. Pours copper amber with big head and lace. Aroma of bread, grass, amber malts. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of amber malts, grains, light caramel and hops. Overall flavorful and easy to drink.

Another new beer and new can thanks to Trent! It pours a hazy honey colour with a small head of foam. It shrinks but doesn’t leave the scene completely...islands, ring around the glass, nice lacing. I get some sweet and fruity notes in the smell, some of that fruit being citrus..lemon, orange? Nice. Bready malt starts things off with some orange and lemon, more of the former than the latter, backing the bread up. There’s a certain earthiness going on with this Lager that I really enjoy. And the hops are doing their thing, Noble style. That’s always a good way to go. As good a mouthfeel as I can get in a Vienna Lager. Man, I dig this. Superb in so many ways. More of this style that is as well made as this, please!

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.
