Indy Brewers Fest 2009 - A well crafted brew to be sure. The hops and malt play off each other in both the aroma and flavor. Not bad considering some of the pale ales I’ve had lately. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2010

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.
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2010 Sample from can at the Beer ’N Rock Band tasting on 08/27/2010: The beer is a clear golden color with a medium fluffy off-white head that recedes slowly. Thin sheet of lacing at the top of the glass with spots underneath. Hoppy aroma with primarily citrus notes, along with a touch of malt. Medium body with hops and zesty citrus flavors along with malty notes. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Straightforward, decent Pale Ale overall.

An assertively hopped west coast style pale ale. Every aspect of this beer is designed to showcase the hops without overpowering your taste buds.

Can thanks to funkybrewster. Really nice pale ale. Very drinkable. Light and biscuity up front with some sharp clean citrus finishing with medium bitterness, very clean. Certainly one I could find myself knocking back all day and several of. Palate is light, but not too thin or watery, carbonation seems to play nice as well.

Tasted on 2/11/12 from a 16oz can given to me by Matt Leff, big thanks. Pours clear, bright orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin lace, leaving some sticky lacing along the inside of the glass. The nose is full of citrus hops, with notes of resin and some toasted bread malt. The flavor is lightly sweet toasted bread malt up front, moving to pleasantly bitter citrus peel hops. The body is fairly light with average carbonation, and a long bitter citrus hops finish. weihenweizen (3825) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Refrigerated 1 pint can from JoePeesie poured into a shaker. Pours clear deep golden with big bright fluffy white head. Big bubble fluffy lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly resinous texture, and nice hop aroma. Taste is citrus, some long pine, and slightly bitter finish. Better than expected. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2012

Can thanks to JoePeesie! Clear amber pour with moderate eggshell head. Aroma is full of pine and earthy hops backed by plenty of caramel malt and bread. Flavor is hop dominant of spruce, orange peel, and dirt backed by caramel malt. Some lemon in the finish with moderate rush of hops. Really good!

16oz can from Keg Liquors in New Albany, IN. Pours a crystal clear, deeper gold colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of soapy lacing. Aroma is grass and citruses with a grainy pale malt backing. Some soft florals, a bit of an earthy resin, and grapefruit. Flavor is similar. Slightly bready pale malts with a nice grapefruit and grassy citrus. More soft florals, a bit of a resiny pine, and a light earthiness before this finishes dry and slightly resiny with a light-medium, grassy, somewhat citrusy bitterness balanced well with a lightly sweetened bready pale malt. Lengthy aftertaste following a light, but a very smooth body with a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, a well done pale ale. Nice pale malt backing with some breadiness and a solid, grassy, citrusy hop backing. Very easy drinking and enjoyable.
