Tap at the airport as I prayed I wouldn’t get snowed in. Pours hazy orange withbwhite head. Nose of big bright hops and tropical fruits. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, vanilla, rock candy, tangerines, bananas, and light ginger. Slight sticky but refreshing and nice HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2014
16 oz. can. Pours and orangish amber with a medium white head, pretty good lacing. Aroma is citrus, herbal, pine, and touch of spruce notes. Some very apparent orange peel notes. Flavor is orange peel, mild pine. Medium bitterness with no real malt sweetness apparent. A touch of oxidation, but since Sun King doesn’t date their cans I don’t know how old this beer is. Finishes on a long citrus note. SSSteve (4006) - - DEC 28, 2013

Tall boy from StFun - thanks, Josh! Enter the risen Osiris! Nice light orange pour, mildly cloudy and with a big fluffy head. Good lacing. Soft floral and fruity nose backed by malts and grass. Medium bodied and prickly. Tastes pretty good, with the virtues of a classic APA but more of a citrus character. Good session beer from SK. jrob21 (3874) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2014

5/06/2010: Sun King Osiris Pale Ale... Aroma: Vibrant citrus and faint pine hops. Appearance: Transparent yellow color; stagnant, small, off-white head; fast carbonation bubbles. Flavor: Fruity hops (resin, weak tangerine, grapefruit, floral); great level of hoppiness and bitterness (moderate that stick in the throat). Palate: Medium-light, a touch thin. Overall: This is a nice, sessionable Pale Ale.
1 pint can; Alc. 5.6% by Vol. Rating #17 for this beer.

I wasn’t sure what to expect but since the price was only $3.50 for a pint the risk was minimal. The reward was a solid and flavorful pale ale. Not quite heavy enough to wear down the palate it still had enough depth to keep from being a boring one trick pony. Oh, and it also comes in relatively inexpensive cans if that is your thing.
Aroma / Appearance - The rosy red body glowed with warmth like a dim fire. A pillowy white head remained after a few minutes. Beneath was the smell of cedar, polished bronze, caramel, and dashes of honey. The warm bitterness glues everything together like strands of tree sap.
Flavor / Palate - Light and easy going, the first impression is of oranges and lemons. The transition towards a woody finish brings the hops into focus clearly. Over time it becomes a little predictable. However it is still good enough to keep a four pack around for hot summer afternoons. If you are in central Indiana check it out and support a local brewery.
On tap at Indianapolis airport . Amber body. Pine and resin with a watery finish . Okay ipa queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Can. Floral grapefruit and piney hops aroma. Hazy honey gold with a moderate thick white head. Floral citrus peel hops and caramel malt flavor, with a long, lingering spicy bitter finish. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, and a slightly dry finish. NachlamSie (3597) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Pint at Chumley’s then again at Radio Radio while being blown away by the sound of Caspian. What a combination. Anyway, there is not much to really say about this beer if you’ve had dozens of American pale ales. This one is very approachable and textbook with modest grapefruit and citrus with comforting malts. This is very clean and on the lighter side of the style. Fantastic for a session, just don’t expect anything out of the ordinary.
