Little Kings Cream Ale brewed by Hudepohl-Schoenling Brewing Co. This brew is something the old timers talk about a lot- so I had to try it out. This brew has an ABV of 5.5 and it pours out a dark amber color. This brew is darker than your American style lager. Little Kings has a small white head that goes away fast. Now keep in mind this beer is in a 7 oz bottle. The smell is strong and bold with flavor. The taste is bold with flavor. I like how this brew is bold with flavor but it goes down crisp and refreshing. Mouth feel is good this brew smooth. Over all I giving this brew a 4 out 5. I'm really impressed with this brew. I will get this again.

Didn't know they still made this stuff.

Tiny 7 oz green glass bottle.

Clear yellow colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells of toasted grain and mild noble hops. Slight caramel and corn scents.

Starts out mildly sweet with some hop leaf. More bitter than expected and fuller. Quite well hopped and malty not watery. No skunk from the green glass.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall far better than expected. A quite decent little beer, I will buy this again now that I have tasted it.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: The aroma is a little sweet and has flavors of corn adjuncts along with hints of biscuit malts.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of corn along with notes of biscuit and bready malts. There's no bitterness and no skunk is detectable, despite the beer coming in a green bottle.
M: It feels a bit shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of smoothness and carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and is a decent representation of the style. I was a little skeptical of this beer coming in a green 7 oz. bottle but was pleasantly surprised it wasn't really that bad.
