Reviewed solo out of a short pilsner glass.
Appearance: Clear and golden yellow, with a quick dissipating white head.
Smell: Light malt and mildly grainy.
Taste: Opens with light malts, with a slight twinge. Hints of Belgian yeast surface mid palate as subsides as the light and crisp malt profile finishes this brew. Throughout the transition there are hints of hop that emerge ever so briefly as if muted by the malt profile.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation and slightly drying.
Drinkabililty: I would definitely have this again. I recommend this to those seeking a solid cream ale, light and a better alternative than macro lagers.
Serving type: can

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.
