Can shared by another patron at the Smuttynose tasting at Ale Wine & Spirits on 4/27/12. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet malt, a bit creamy, not much else. Flavor of sweet malt and water.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unfortunately the followup to the Osiris was a bit of a letdown. Iíve never really been a big fan of cream ales but this one isnít that great even so. For the price it was not bad ($2.75 Happy Hour deal) but I wouldnít pick up cans unless there was absolutely nothing else on the shelf except macros.
Aroma / Appearance - The transparent golden body did not do much to obscure the light trickling in from outside. Bubbly carbonation was a little too active as well. The scent of powdered sugar, cream filling, and lemon crisp made this feel like sitting at the dessert section of a deli. It was easy on the senses but perhaps a little too much so.
Flavor / Palate - Lemons, cream filling extracted from a Twinkie, and orange zest live a short and plain life before fading near the front of the throat. What does remain is a sweet texture. The finish is not remarkably distinct if youíve had any other common cream ales. Even so it gets some points for effort and the fact that it is a local though I wonít be trying it again any time soon.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 No aroma, pilsner yellow color, light hops, light malt. Full flavor, but no different than a miller genuine draft.. Disappointed. For the price, I will order a watered down american lager

Tried this on on draft on 4/20/12 and not much different.
Aroma is light lemon taste is malt with very little hops present corn and mild sweetness , very easy drinking.... Still not worth the $10 for (4) 16 oz cans

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear yellow pour. Malty sweet nose with a mildly floral and fruity hop profile throughout. Crisp, light, and easy to drink. If you like weak flavored beer this is a good one.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Date: January 18, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: Crown Liqour Description: Translucent yellow pour with nice amount of head that faded almost immediately. Aroma was malt and grain. Taste was similar with a slight bitter finish. The only other cream ale I have had is Spotted Cow and this is not nearly as good as that.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thereís a very faint aroma with hints of yeast, bread, and grain. It pours a clear light yellow, with a big, quickly fading white head. Mild creamy taste, with a rich and full mouthfeel. This is a solid cream ale, something that you can easily drink on a hot summer day. Itís nothing extraordinary, which isnít surprising for the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at Joeís Grille in Indy. The beer is a clear yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet corn and malt. Light body with flavors of grainy malt, corn and a touch of mild hops. The finish is clean and sweet with a malt aftertaste. Pretty straightforward beer overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not my favorite style, Iíll admit, but this is a good example. Lively carbonation; smooth body. Sweet malt base with elements of milk, soda, honey and cake frosting. Mild yet balancing bitterness. Somewhat herbal in nature. Overall, itís light yet flavorful; pleasant and drinkable. I wish Sun King would can some of their bolder brews.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at CanFest 2011 in Reno. Not bad. Could have used a little creaminess to it. Had a bit too much metallic bite to it. Could see it as a nice summer beer though.
