COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Osiris Pale Ale is an assertive American Pale and is not meant for the timid. Crafted by our Brewers for our Brewers, Osiris blends three choice varieties of American hops to create a spicy, citrus hop punch that is sure to satisfy any hop head. Every batch of Osiris is dry-hopped towards the end of fermentation for maximum hop flavor, aroma and character.

DavoleBomb (1522) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Poured into a pint glass. 4.0 A: Clear yellow light orange color. Two and a half fingers of frothy, but somewhat dense white head. Good retention and tons of lacing. 3.5 S: Overall pretty clean with neutral malt aroma. Hops are mainly floral in nature with some herbalness in the background. They arenít that strong, but very nice smelling. 4.0 T: Soft bitterness. Again, really clean with neutral malt. Slightly piney and grapefruit hops. 4.0 M: Heavier light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Very smooth and slight creaminess. 3.5 D: Not a bad brew and no problems. However, itís a bit too straightforward and perhaps a touch boring. Donít get me wrong, I really appreciate the craftsmanship here, but it just isnít that exciting. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 07-14-2010 23:55:36

Pours a golden color. Only the slightest thin white head. No hop aroma, no malt aroma. I am getting something a little musty. Taste is thin, watery and light to medium bitterness. No hop flavor. This tastes like an aggressive ESB to me.

can thanks to awiseman01, pours light copper/deep gold with a medium white head. Aroma is full of nice citrus and grassy hop notes, really nice nose. Flavor is fairly sweet with pale malts and again some grassy notes that are turned bitter with huge notes of pine, peach and citrus hops. Flavorful stuff.

CanÖ Clear golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Lengthy retention. The nose is of biscuit and moderately toasted grains flanked by musky and citrusy hops Ė lemon peel stands out. Medium to full-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is of medium bitter, spicy, peppery hops. Lengthy, moderately bitter, dry finish. Thanks to MI2CA for providing this brew!

Okay. Iím not a fan of pale ales and Iím not on drinking terms with IPAs. I appreciate how important hops is to the beer making process but I do NOT appreciate the unbridled flavor of hops found in pale ales and IPAs. There, I said it. That being said, I actually enjoyed Sun Kingís Osiris Pale Ale. Now, I must admit to being at least a LITTLE biased in favor of Sun King, which is the only functional local brewery in Indianapolis. Osiris is a really smooth beer that lacks the unpleasant bite of most pale ales. The warm golden color is immediately inviting and the smooth flavor is instantly rewarding. At $5 a growler, Osiris is an easy win if you ever swing by the Sun King Brewery in Downtown Indianapolis.

emacgee (4360) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Pours an extremely clean straw gold with one finger of sticky white head. Absolutely perfect. Nose is mildly citrusy with some pine. Mildly oxidized. Flavor is spicy with citrus zest and bready malt. Palate shows a low bitterness and a medium body.

bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 19, 2010
I poured a 16 oz can into a shaker at a now-forgotten bar in downtown Indy. A lovely deep tan color, this smelled tantalizingly of fresh hops and honey sweetness. As these aromas suggested, this was a bigger, more robust apa than what you might normally expect from a local start-up microbrew. The carbonation was a bit too much, but overall this left a pleasant sensation across the middle and tip of the tongue. A nice offering.

Damico (2857) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2010
The aroma is a bit light, some citrus and crisp zest. The beer pours golden amber with an awesome creamy white head. The flavoris crisp grapefruit citrus with a bit too much of a dry finish.

tbrink (5) - USA - OCT 26, 2010 does not count
Poured from one pint can into glass. Aroma: not very apparent spicy hop aroma that is probably due to being too chilled. As it comes toward room temperature, malt begins to come out. Taste: crisp, hoppy flavor that ends with bitterness at the back of the throat. Appearance: rich, clear amber with thin head and good lacing. Hops dominate with a hint of malt in the background. Overall: this is a good representation of a well-hopped IPA thatís worth trying.

10/24/10. 16oz can. Clear golden color that hints at orange - pretty light - with a small fluffy off-white head that lasts and laces a bit. Really nice fresh hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and definitely pine - quite nice. Smooth but light flavor that is a little thin but does pack a bitter punch and some nice hop character as well.
