3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a thin film at the top.
Aroma: Big zesty piney hop blast.
Taste: Bitter, earthy hops, slight spicy sticky malt, finishes dry and piney.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, fairly carbonated.
Overall: Reminded me of the hop and malt profile I find in Pacific North West beers. Not my favorite APA, but drinkable.

A nice APA, with a good, citric hops character and depth of flavor. It falls short of the best APAs, but would certainly do just fine most of the time.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of American hops, grapefruit and citrus. Medium mouthfeel, not too thing, not too thick. Hop bitterness is evident, but lacks enough malty sweetness for balance. Decent APA, but really needs more maltiness to balance the hop bitterness.

A "mild" pale ale. On the can it says west coast style but to me not very hoppy and this is a pretty fresh can. And I say not too hoppy as someone that isnít much of a hophead. Tasty and very mild pale ale. Nice color, not much aroma, but tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can, courtesy StFun. Pours a mostly clear golden yellow and topped by a small, off white foamy head that dissipates quickly. The aroma shows notes of light, floral hops, light citrus, and some fresh grass all atop a pale malt base. The flavor follows with some light citrus, and fresh cut grass to go with floral hop bitterness. The pale bready malts adds a touch of sweetness to go with the light bitterness from the hops. Light bodied on the palate with good carbonation and a lingering floral hop bitterness on the finish. This is an easy drinking pale ale, but just lacks that something extra to set it apart.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2012 Wow. I remember liking the Osiris when I first had it, but it didnít jump out at me. Got some almost 2 years later and itís a REALLY GOOD pale ale. My initial rating is below, and I gave it a 3.2.
Pale ale color - nice, pretty much in the same range, but a good color for this style. THE NOSE IS AMAZING. I think theyíve surpassed Alpha King in terms of the "Indiana" pale ale. Lots of Citrus, and I think there are some Simcoe hops in here...Iím getting that cat piss aroma (I LOVE THAT). Taste is smooth and the flavor hops are there with just the right amount of bite. It is not harsh. Good job, guys!
------ Old Review from 6/16/2010 -------- the most part, this is your standard pale ale, but it does have itís own unique hop flavor - it doesnít taste like a Sierra Nevada clone. Iíd say that the hops give off a tinge of tobacco, but mostly itís citrus. I was hoping for more of an Alpha King type zing, but no such luck. Comes in 16-oz cans, which is neat. Sorta expensive at $11.99/4-pack though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can shared by shigadeyo. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that becomes a thin ring. The aroma is crisp citrus, floral, pale malt, and grass. The flavor has some citrus notes mingling with dry, grassy and floral hops and bready pale malt. There is a mild to moderate level of bitterness. Light to medium bodied drinkable APA.

5/06/2010: Sun King Osiris Pale Ale... Aroma: Vibrant citrus and faint pine hops. Appearance: Transparent yellow color; stagnant, small, off-white head; fast carbonation bubbles. Flavor: Fruity hops (resin, weak tangerine, grapefruit, floral); great level of hoppiness and bitterness (moderate that stick in the throat). Palate: Medium-light, a touch thin. Overall: This is a nice, sessionable Pale Ale.

Iíve had a few different Sun Kings and this one is probably the best. With that said itís still not a great beer. Its drinkable but thereís a lot better beer on the market.
