look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-Clear as day, light amber, not much carbonation, one finger head.

S-Very malty, caramel, molasses, grass and malt.

T-Nice and malty, sweet, bread, caramel and nice balance.

M-Light to medium bodied, some carbonation.

O-I don't know what it is with Sun King and their lagers, but they are really good. This and the Oktoberfest I was worried about both greatly exceed my expectations.

A dark lager, thin head. Dark golden brown color. Not cloudy at all,very solid. Decent aroma, nothing potent. It is a little lacking in the taste but makes up for it with a solid showing in the mouthfeel department. Not bad, but not great. Pretty drinkable, pretty decent, good local Indianapolis beer to support.

3/5  rDev -14.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Clear shiny light gold color with oversized head that is ridiculously creamy and drops a surprising amount of lace for a Helles. Clean malt nose with slight toasty and soapy notes. A little fresh hop accent as well.

Flavor is very much the same. Smooth light malt and not too much else. Good balance. I can't find the slightly sweet and deeper malt character I was expecting. It comes off as closer to an all-malt American premium lager than a Helles. Likely there is more domestic malt here than I'm used to in the style. The German character is there; unfortunately it's a detail rather than the focus.

The mouthfeel is excellent -- by far the best aspect of the beer. It's almost medium in body with perfect carbonation. The result is a smooth, hearty satisfying feel. Overall a decent beer, but not one of Sun King's best. I fully intend to buy this many times at "ballpark prices" this summer, but won't be picking up any more $12 four-packs in the near future.

This beer just arrived on shelves today and is brewed for the Indianapolis Indians.

It pours a light bodied clear and bright copper with a soft and creamy two finger bright white head. The nose consists of pale malt, light Munich malt, slightly candied malt and has a general creaminess, ala their Oktoberfest. The flavors are light and fresh, featuring pale malt with lager yeast and a mild bitterness, on point for the style. It's definitely built for outside, and summer especially. It's light in body and easy to drink, both refreshing and flavorful. This is a nice representation of the style. I like it.
