COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Golden colour, grainy aroma with lots of alcohol harshness. Similar palate, tastes industrial, bland, touch of pale malt but touch of acidity as well.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 9, 2010
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 it’s 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.

Draft at Sun King. Poured clear golden color with average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex grain and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew and standout for style.

daknole (9099) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2011
well another cream ale that is pretty damn boring. Light gold, white head. Very light on the malt and hops, I detect a light butter note. Flavor is smooth, lightly crisp, some faint bittering hops, honey/malty notes. Passable on a hot day.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Can @ home picked up at Highlands Liquor. Pours a fairly clear golden yellow appearance with an off white head. Corn, candy, vanilla, sweet malty aroma that’s almost like a malt liquor. Fairly clean, Budweiser-esque flavor with some rice/corny/sweet notes. Nothing particularly off but really reminiscent of a macro lager.
