COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sunlight Cream Ale is our most approachable beer and is a great introduction to the world of Craft Beer. Cream ale is one of the earliest styles of American beer, but was virtually wiped out by American lager brewers. Our Cream Ale is an all malt beer. Only the finest quality barley, wheat and oats are used to give this beer it’s smooth malt profile which is delicately balanced with American hops and a cool fermentation to give this beer a crisp, clean finish.

ARH (735) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2015
On tap, poured into a sample glass. The aroma is bready and grain with a light tropical sweetness. The beer is clear and effervescent with a straw hue and a white, creamt soft dense that retains a frothy and thick ring with nearly full surface coverage, and leaved a thick, dense sheet lace. The taste is a medium light sweet with just a touch of bitter. It’s creamy with a zippy carbonation. The light body had bread and grain flavors with a light lemon zest. The finish is zesty and clean with a light spice that leaves a light, lingering aftertaste with a touch of an astringent quality.

Basically a craft lawn mower beer. Well made... But boring. Notes of toasted grain and a creamy mouthfeel.
