(beer tasting @ Montyís Krown - Rochester, NY: can - 500 ml) Light and clear gold with a fizzy white head. Very mild aroma with grassy and light corn hints. Some sweetness as well. Sweet flavor at the start with a dry malt and grassy middle. Sweet and watery finish.

Pours a golden color. No head at all. Aroma is grain and sweet. Taste is sweet and grainy. Only the slightest hint of bitterness. Very light and crisp. For the style it is a decent attempt.

Yuk. I tried this 16 oz can at a bar in downtown Indy, and found this to be pale, thin and none too creamy. The wheat and oat make this soft and round in your mouth, but the body is thin and watery, and the flavor fades into an indistinct, pilner-ish mix of old candy, white bread, and other banal flavors from childhood. Possibly a good lawnmower, but nothing I am eager to try again. This brewer offers other, better things to enjoy during your visit to the Crossroads of America.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, earth, and grass. Flavor of grain, dough, and grass with a moderately dry finish.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a can.
Appearance: light straw color with thin almost nonexistent head. Hardly any lacing.
Aroma: malty, bready, with a slight hint of hops somewhere in there.
Taste: malty, gently hopped. Kind of reminds me of a michelob.
Overall: this is a good, almost generic tasting beer that youíd give to a friend that hasnít experienced craft beers before. Try it at least once.

10/24/10. 16oz can. Clear golden pour with a fizzy white head thatís gone instantly. Light grainy aroma and a light, crisp, and fresh flavor that is surprisingly clean and smooth. Impressed when I was expecting to be disappointed.

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.
