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.

A- Golden straw color. White head with good retention S- Not a whole lot going on here. Very mild. T - Very crisp and clean. Slightly sweet. M - Highly carbonated leaves a dry finish, but has a little body to it. D - This is probably my favorite lawnmower beer. Very light and crisp, but still actually contains flavor.

On tap at Detour in Carmel. Pours a clear yellow-gold with a small white head. Nice aroma of sweet malt, corn and some grassiness. Flavor is sweet and biscuity with a nice dry finish. A nice, sessionable brew.

Easy drinking, smooth, and, yes creamy. Pour is a medium gold tending toward yellow with almost white head. Nose is lightly malty and sweet. Flavor follows the nose, with the creaminess coming through.

On tap at Local Eatery and Pub in Westfield IN. Grain and corn aromas that follow right into the taste. The dry corn flavor is really excellent and gives it very Kolsch like taste. Light lemony tartness too. Very light bodied and flavored, and very refreshing.

Can pour very light yellow. Nose could smell the skunk almost as soon as can opened. Sweet malt and perm solution. Taste some sweet malt slight corn. No hop.

On tap. Clear golden pour with a foamy eggshell head that leaves quite a bit of sticky lace. Soft corn lager-esque nose, with some fruity esters including light banana. Fairly sweet, lightly bitter. Medium bodied, actively carbed, with a tingly finish. Decent for what it is. Would probably hit the spot on a really hot day. Looks like Miller Lite.

On tap @ 2013 M&M Conference. Served a mid-gold/yellow with a light head and lacing. Aroma was so slightly pungent malts. Taste was slightly malty and grainy with an off-taste mid hoppy finish. Palate was OK. Overall, not one of the better cream ales I have tried.

16oz can. Pours a crystal clear pale golden color with a huge creamy white head. Aroma of musty grain, grass, and slightly fruity. Taste is yeasty, slight citrus, hay, and grain. Very average beer.

Drinkable and pleasant; that's really all I can say. It's by far the worst of their 3 house beers(with the other 2 being exceptional). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours a clear and very dark golden color with effectively no head on it. Nose has some corn notes to it, and is very reminiscent of a traditional lager. Taste is actually fairly crisp and not too lager-y, and without the eerie sweetness I feared. Very drinkable.
