3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a pale straw like color with a touch of haze and a short lived white head.
S: A bit of an off-putting nose which seems to be composed of corn for the most part. A slight skunkiness, but at least itís not as bad as Osiris.
T: The flavor is pretty standard for a cream ale, nicely sweet with a touch of yeast and bread. Very clean flavors and actually pretty refreshing.
M: Light in body as you would tend to expect with a crisp carbonation.
D: Not my favorite style, but this was a nice refreshing beer which is one thing I like about these kinds of beers. Worked well on a hot day at the Bruery.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to LtDan. Pours with a slightly hazed golden body and a fading white head. Aroma of grass, grain, vanilla, cereal, and light caramel. Some corn too, but not nearly as much as in other cream ales. Taste is light, crisp, grassy and lightly peppery. Not really a whole lot going on, but it isnít bad at all. Nothing offensive that I can find. Maybe a bit of pear or light ester. Dry and crisp. Medium bubbles. Pretty decent. Drinkable for sure.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on tap at the brewery. The appearance is a pale straw gold. Light creaminess to this guy and not a ton else. For some reason Iíve had a few cream ales recently 3 of my 4 total in a week. I hope that ends. However I think it is a good way for Sun King to get their name out there to the macro lager lovers of the Midwest.

Can: The aroma consists of a sweet graininess and faint floral and grassy notes. It pours a pale yellow with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film and thicker ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts lightly sweet with some hints of grain. The finish is lightly grassy with a hint of floral notes. Light bodied with lightly fizzy carbonation. A solid lawn mower beer.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I donít understand why anyone would drink this. If there was a 0 for the 5 categories this would receive 0ís from me. The smell uh if smell is were the majority of taste comes from thatís diffidently not a plus here. Appearance not what I think any beer should look like. Taste none the only taste is a cringing metallic taste. Palate there is none you would think something that has cream in the title would have some body? However this is pure water constancy.

16 oz can. Pours a very light gold with off white head. Slight hay and citrus aroma. Quite drinkable and smooth, just not very complex. Does a have a nice creamy texture or mouthiness to it, with a cream finish. Nice summer brew.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
One of only cream ales I have tried, this light bodied, light yellow/orange colored brew is good for the summer but not much else. I bit of cream pushed through the body with some sweetness from the malts but Sunlight really lacks complexity. I know this is Sun Kingís staple beer but it just didnít impress me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A super clear yellow hue almost like mountain dew. A nice creamy head that dissipates. This isnít much to drink. Goes down pretty easy as typical of the style. Very empty in all ways.
