Can pour at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

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.

Sun King is definitely a great brewery. Sunlight Cream Ale was the first microbrew product I ever tried, having been subjected to Bud Light and other domestics at hockey games. The first time it was definitely a very good brew, however as I have sampled more and filled my palate with more I would definitely say this is bottom of the rung of craft beers.

The appearance is a consistent bronze/tan pour with a fingertip length head of foam. It is a light smell and taste and is definitely a craft beer to welcome someone to the world of microbrews and high flavor.

Overall a 4/5 because of its consistency in taste and appearance, but not a favorite beer for most people I am sure.
