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 its smooth malt profile which is delicately balanced with American hops and a cool fermentation to give this beer a crisp, clean finish.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, 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 its 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.
