look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from one pint can.
Pale straw in color. Very clear. About three finger thick white colored fluffy head, that disappears slowly into a thin layer. Some side lacing left by the head. Medium to slightly high on bubbles and carbonation.
Aroma: Some malts and some corn like adjuncts. Low on hops. A few esters. Not a very strong aroma.
Taste: A lot of adjunct corn. Very little hops with only slight bitterness. Some malts. Somewhat sweet and dry finish. Otherwise a bland taste, typical of American adjunct lagers.
Mouth feel: Very light and crisp. High on carbonation. Smooth but not easy drinking if you do not like such water like stuff.
Overall: Tried it just for trying this style. Fits the style really well. Based on personal preference, this is no better than a lot of American adjunct out there. One of the worst beers i have had in recent times.

i have said it many times but i will say it again, we need more cream ales out there. they aren't all going to be world class, but its a nice refreshing drink and definitely underrepresented on the beer scene. this one is very light, but still maintains a classic frothy mouthfeel and bright carbonation. there is indeed a milky sweetness to this that hints at corn-like sugar, but the finish is still clean. I'm missing a little body here, and also some balancing hops for bitterness, but i really like the drinkability and the package (four pack of pint cans), a very good dose. this is nothing earth shattering, but it is a useful brew. good blonde beer for colder weather too, as it has a little meat to it despite the thinner body. of the handful of beers i have had from sun king, this is not the highest quality but one of the ones i appreciate the most. let cream ales live on!

Poured a clear, yellow with non persistent creamy white head which receded quickly. Highly carbonated. Aroma of biscuits, bread, raw donut dought, yeast. Taste dominated by breadiness, some biscuit malt. No bitterness but not sweet. Finished somewhat clean, high carbonation tingling, refreshing. Quite a lingering bready aftertaste.
