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.

Tall boy can served in a Weizen glass. A: Pours a clear yellow color with a one finger height of white head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thin ring. S: Light pale malts, some green grass hops with a touch of sweet corn. T: The lagery flavor profiles are much more assertive in the taste. Some sweet corn adjuncts with pale malts and some light bittering grass. Lagery yeast comes at you in the finish. M: Light bodied with a high carbonation level. Prickly mouthfeel with a sweet malt finish. O: Very solid cream ale. Spotted Cow is a touch better as the lager flavor profiles come out a little more in this beer giving a sweetness that is just ok. Serving type: can

Draft:light... Golden and creamy. The way it should be. I feel like I could drink 100 of these and be happy.

Light golden color with a frothy white head. Light spritzy nose that reminded me of orange pop. Light session beer with orange peel and some yeast. Very tame, easy drinking beer.

Pint can: Pours clear, pale gold with a tall white head..a very active head, at that. Scent is initially heavy cereal, acidic and sweet.... Taste and feel are incredibly creamy.....barley malt..... Remarkably soft... almost "fluffy"...like a beer-flavoured "Cool-Whip"... I like it.

Pint can from Keg Liquors in New Albany, IN. Pours a crystal clear straw, pale yellow colored body with a finger-width, fizzy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is light with some grainy corn and a touch of sweetness. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened and grainy with some corn. Finishes crisp and clean with no real bitterness before leaving a short aftertaste. Light body and a crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, not a whole lot to this, but an easy drinking and clean cream ale. Not bad.

Light, golden clear. Aroma not very pleasing - somewhat like a funky cheese. However, flavor is crisp & clean. Pretty well-balanced. Not too bitter, sour, or sweet. Good refreshing summer ale.

Draft at BW3 in Indy. Pours a pale yellow-straw with a froth and persistent head. Nose is corny and sweet, some marshmallow notes, no hops. On tasting, it’s a pretty straightforward cream ale. Moderately sweet and grainy, faint citrus. Faint bitterness as well. Nothing really spectacular, but a decent Cream Ale.

Light, sweet and creamy. Little hops. A bit metallic from the can. A tad citrus and acidic. Unfortunately it gave me a headache.

emcclarnon (1) - Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2012 does not count
Aroma is very malty Appearance reminds me of a sun peeking through the clouds, it is moderately to highly carbonated, so it sparkles in the light. It has nice lacing that sticks around for awhile. Taste is somewhat like a domestic beer, only creamier with outstanding drinkability. It showcases plenty of malts and is well done for the style of beer. The Palate is very creamy with a nice smooth mouthfeel. When compared to budweiser, bud is a 4 and this is a 9. Overall, I will be buying this again, Consider me a well satisfied customer. Another classic Indiana beer.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Aroma was kinda weird with this almost tangerine tone and some earthy pale maltiness, and a bit of cereal grains. taste was light and malty, pretty grainy sweet with virtually no hops, all pale grain sweetness. Like carbonated wort.
