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.

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.
