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

"Smooth body, and decent semi-sweet cream and earthy hop flavor. Aroma is hard to get out - you have to work for it. Nothing to complex or interesting in this one."
