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.

Can. Has a nice clear cooper. Has a light body taste. A creamy sweet malt taste. Low standards beer.

Plain pilsner-like aroma with some lemon rind. Taste is pilsner-like with some lemon juice. Some cereal malt in the finish. I don’t know what is going on, but I remember the sweet cereal malt being really present in this when I had it before.

Can, someplace in Indianapolis I can’t remember. Nothing creamy or tasty here - just lots of plain and uninteresting taste with a bland start and finish.

I dont have a good sense of smell thanks to allergies, so the aroma rating is gonna be off. I'm sure my taste buds are off too, but that being said, this is a pretty tasty beer. It's smooth and easy to drink. If you are new to beers that don't taste like piss water (looking at you Bud and Coors), this is a pretty safe bet for you to like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

9 apr 2015, tap. Yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is lager malt and light lemon citrus. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Straw malt and lemon grassy hops and no real bitterness. Okay.

16 oz can poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread, soap and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, light corn and a hint of yeast with a smooth finish.

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.

Orange pour from tap smooth. Has a creamy and interesting texture. Not bad.
