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.

Good entry beer for those not in to hops or craft beer. Best when drank closer to room temp to help bring out the flavors.

Tall boy can. Cloudy gold pour little head and no retention. Nose a little musty with malt and not much else. Taste of biscuit and malt. Fairly clean. Not trying to be anything it isn't. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

b3shine (5187) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2013
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.
