3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
So itís a cream ale, which is nice because other than Little Kingís, I donít think Iíve had a cream ale. Pours yellow - darker than Pabst, but not quite as burnished gold as Pilsner Urquell. Very smooth drinker. Not much aroma, smells like American Lager in that sense. I get a hint of corn, but the label doesnít say anything about that - only barley, wheat and oats. So thatís pretty great. Iíd be curious to see what hops were used.

Can thanks to StFun! Clear light yellow pour, very little carbonation and a slightly funky pineapple aroma. Flavor is slightly sour lemon, some floral hops, then some good malt and finished a little creamy and peppery on the aftertaste. Decent, Iíd buy this if available locally and might even trade for it again.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at The Social Club, Indianapolis. Pours a light yellow with no head. Malty aroma. Nicely balanced. Not a lot of flavour, and an abrupt finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tall boy from StFun - thanks, Josh!!! Another refreshing session brew from Sun King. Lively golden pour, with a brimming head and a nose of hay, hops, and mild malting. Pert mouthfeel, very quaffable. Understated flavors of mild hops, grass, and a bit of sweet malts. Not bad at all!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I like Cream Ales. 16oz can from Brundo on BA. Thanks! Nose of grainy malts, wheat, light adjuncty sweetness, light grassy hops. Golden pour with a fizzy soapy head. Flavors of bready malt, wheat, light soft sweetness, grass, perhaps a touch of corn. Dont get much oat. Light and drinkable, not overly adjuncty. I like cream ales.

Cloudy gold pour, thin white head. Some malts present, but almost no cream flavor present. Not as smooth as a traditional cream ale. Medium body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a yellow lively pour, almost glowing with light haze, a creamy bright white head that dies to a thick film, laces very well. Aromas are minimal, a touch of cereal grain sweetness, mellow on the nose with bread and a faint floral hopping. Initial is heavier side of light, clean and crisp lawnmower beer with grainy malts, bread, freshcut grass on the scant hopping. Clean, a light grainy sweetness, malt, mellow. A nice easy drinker, but it is what it is.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 2nd Review: Draft at the Fort Wayne release party at CS3. Didnít get any of that "rotten sweetness" I spoke of in my first review. Just an easy session brew thatíll help ease the masses towards better beers and a brighter future. Nothing special, but it isnít meant to be... just for no-thinkín drinkín.
1st Review: Original score 2.1 "On tap at the Trion. First off, let me say that Cream Ales just arenít my style. I may be rating it a bit lower than it deserves, but this is my own personal opinion of it.
Iíll keep it short and sweet, just like this beer, hehe.
Smooth and um... creamy, but a rotten sweetness makes it difficult to roll around in the mouth. Look elsewhere for a better description, Iím just not impressed enough to spend my time with a proper review."

tap at the brewery - Pours slightly hazy yellow with a white, lacing head. The aroma is grainy malt and some light citrus. Itís a light bodied brew as expected with sweet, grainy malt and mild hops. Decent.
