Nice and light. Good flavor. Could be creamier, but not bad for the price.

A: Pours a clear medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy sudsy light beige head that quickly reduces to a mottled large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuit malts with some light amounts of corn adjuncts. Very light hints of fruity yeast (apple).

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of slightly sweet biscuit malts with a light amount of corn adjuncts. There is a hint of fruity yeast and just a hint of earthy hops in the finish. Minimal amounts of bitterness which fades almost instantly.

M: Slightly less than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth/slightly creamy.

O: Easy to drink and a decent mid-afternoon beer for the holiday. Surprised that it had no skunkiness to it since it comes in the clear green bottle.

Little Kings Cream Ale from Hudepohl-Schoenling Brewing Co. is what alot of the old timers here in Stark County, Ohio used to chill with back in the day. Figured I'd give this a try in my early 20's... The very cool,small 7 oz bottles are certainly the first brew I've ever seen in a bottle so small. Poured from two bottles into a glass, this brew has little head that disappears rather quickly. However, the lacing is impressive, thus amping up the extra quarter point in this division. Medium, clear golden body.

The smell has a minute amount more malt than most ales I've experienced. Besides that, fairly neutral here.

Same here with the taste, I got an initial smack of malt flavor, and it went away in midswallow . Absolutely no lingering elements whatsoever,and a delightfully clean finish for an ale that has such a malt-like presence to it. I like this aspect of the brew, for reasons that escape even myself.

I give the mouthfeel a 4 dude to the fact that this is so crisp and clean going down. Very impressive for a brew over 5% ABV, in my opinion anyways.

Overall a respectable 3.75 . I didn't find one thing offensive about this brew and again the clean finish was very liked by yours truly
