1/5 rDev -71.5%
I don’t understand why anyone would drink this. If there was a 0 for the 5 categories this would receive 0’s from me. The smell uh if smell is were the majority of taste comes from that’s diffidently not a plus here. Appearance not what I think any beer should look like. Taste none the only taste is a cringing metallic taste. Palate there is none you would think something that has cream in the title would have some body? However this is pure water constancy.

A: straw yellow with a fizzy white head
S: faint aroma, a bit adjunct with rice/corn and mostly reminiscent of light lagers.
T: American light lager.
MF: light bodied, medium carbonation
O: This beer lacks creativity and really has no place in the craft market.

A: Appearance is clear, pale yellowish with very little head.
S: Aroma is weak consisting mainly of what and some malty sugar.
T: Taste is very uninspiring and weak - wheat and barley malts with some faint grassy notes.
M: Palate is very watery, flat, and thin.
O: Couldn’t quite tell the difference between this beer and a BMC. Very disappointing.

pours clearbright golden yellow with a 2 finger fizzy white head that faded fast and left no lacing
smell faint some lemon? and grains
taste is very watery - a watered down beer creamsicle with a toch of hop bitterness and sweet grains
mouthfeel is thin carbonated water
drinkability is not good - not a drain pour - just a flavorless beer - i will try to enjoy the other 3 while watching some basketball/baseball game

Draft poured into a pint glass
Cream ales are essentially a bridge from American style lagers into a top fermented style ale, while essentially retaining most of the characteristics of the former. Don’t let the name fool you, this doesn’t include “cream” or any variation thereof. The term is more of a description of the smoothness derived from the lagering period, or period of storage intended to let the flavors balance and mellow out. I think there are better words that could be used there.
A: Sunlight Cream Ale pours a straw yellow with a fizzy white head, pretty much what you’d expect.
S: The aroma is faint and, in my case, was overpowered by the butter and cheese smells lingering in the restaurant around me, but what I got was a bit adjunct with rice/corn and mostly reminiscent of light lagers.
T/M: It has a medium amount of carbonation, a mild bitterness, very pale dry maltiness, a little bit of sweetness on the back end like an amber, but overall a very basic, American lager tasting beer.
Unremarkable, to say the least, but I’m sure it has a place somewhere.

On tap at BWW.
A: Clear gold with a finger of head and slight lacing. Almost like a Bud.
S: Cream, maybe? Very light smell - not much here at all.
T: Typical malts and adjuncts. Not a lot of hops. The cream is slight and in background.
M: A little heavier than an AAL and kind of weird slickness on the tongue. Best part of the thing.
Another disappointment from Sun King.

As I poured this beer into the glass it looked a little pale to me. As i drank the beer it tasted just as bland. I never got a strong enough taste with the 4 that i drank to have anything bad to say about it other than just that: it was flavorless. There was a little creaminess to it but very little. I am a big Sun King fan but this is a weaker beer of theirs.
