16 oz tall boy can, 5.3% abv. Clear gold color, with some active carbonation showing. White frothy head stays for a minute, then disappears leaving no trace.
Cereal grains, and a bit of cooked corn in the nose. Slight earthy hop notes. A bit of a sour, lactic note. Perhaps a bit musty at the back end.
Fairly clean cereal malts. A very slight lactic sharpness. Not a whole lot going on here. Slight earthy hops at the end, that do not linger long at all.
Light to medium body, no traces of alcohol. This is made for quaffing, which is no problem. A very simple beer. Take it for what it is.

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.
