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.

I did not like it. Clear yellow with thite head. Aroma is musty, soapy and skunky. Taste is corn based. Not something I will have again.

Great starter beer for someone just getting into craft beer. Very smooth and very drinkable.

Can thanks to Brigadier, thanks! Pours a very clear light golden with a thick white head and lacing, nice looking, aroma is a little fruity with just a hint of grain and grass, the flavor has a nice smooth front end with a crisp clean finish of grain, a little bit of cream corn in the finish, nothing blows me away by this but is very drinkable.

Can from Rayl101. Pours a clear straw color with white head and active carbonation. Aroma has cracker, biscuit, wheat. Taste is sweet, almost fruity, with light bitterness. Slick texture that gives way to some dryness. Pretty good. Crisp and refreshing and would be a solid summer beer.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells and tastes mild with an average mouthfeel. An easy drinker that would appeal to the masses.

Pours yellow with a quickly receding white head. Notes of pale malt, corn, cracker. Thin bodied with soft carbonation.

Advocate_Ames (390) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Not much in the scent. I picked up on a grainy wheat and barley aroma. The same goes for the flavor with the addition of malts and hops. The drink is slight to mildly bitter. Overall its not a memorable brew. There wasnt much quantity in the flavor to this drink. It lacked a defining taste. It was more like an American main stream brew than a craft brew.

Can. Barley malt and sour milk aroma. Golden yellow with a small head with no retention. Strong, slightly tart barley malt flavor. Light fizzy body, very tingly mouthfeel, dry finish that left my tongue with a weird, almost numb, sensation. Wasn’t diggin’ this one.

AirForceHops (2722) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 23, 2012
16 oz. can from trade with Sean & Amber. Totally clear gold color with quickly fading head that had little retention. Aroma and taste follow each other. Notes of grains, corn, grass, pale malts and a touch of bread. How much can anyone get excited for cream ale? The style isn’t real exciting in general. That being said, this is light in body with a dry finish. Lacking any kind of creamy texture. It is drinkable.

Draft. Hazy yellow, white head. Straw Aroma, more straw snd some pepper in the taste. OK.
