Large tight white foamy head is slow to develop, but rises fast once legs are gathered. Decent head retention. Brew is orange with nice clarity. Not much lacing.

Grainy, earthy, dirty, orange, moderately floral, kinda lackluster.

Crisp, clean, short flavors, thin, wet, earthy, not much bitterness, carbonation is low and on point. Flavors all kinda blend together, nice, I guess. Not much resin or pine. Reminds me of a British Pale Ale, not an American.

Osiris is a good brew, but by no means should be sought after. It's very down the middle and kinda disappointing. I expected Sunking to rock this brew and take a stance with hops. Hard for me to give this one a high(er) rating. It's good, but if I don't have it again, oh well.

light bright pale ale in a pint can from sun king. pale in color, really light for the style, with an average white head with good lace. smells like citrusy hops more than anything else, but appears to be in pretty good balance overall, with a lighter malt profile that may even include some pilsener malts. snappy hops on the first sip, again, light and fruity, but definitely hop forward, American style all the way. the ale yeast is interesting too, contributes quite a bit of flavor, some soapy stuff, and maybe even some body in this rather light pale ale. fresh flavor, refreshing and satisfying, but not overly interesting outside of the semisweet citrus hop flavor. well carbonated and easy drinking, the pint can is good size. it doesn't distinguish itself from the crowd to me at all, but it tastes pretty good, and drinks nice and easy, I would happily drink this again, but if I don't, I wont miss it either. one of those.

Pint-sized can served cold into an imperial pint glass.

Osiris is a pale golden orange color with great clarity. The head is thick at first but settles quickly with some spotty lace left behind.

Aroma is hoppy and fresh but not overly big. Then again, it is labeled a pale ale. Some sweet citrus and pine.

Flavor is well balanced but leaning towards the bitter. It has a mild malt base that provides some sweetness up front. Then it gets a little bitter as the hops come forward towards the middle. It finishes piney and crisp.

Mouthfeel is medium-light in body and nicely carbonated.

Overall a really solid pale ale. Not really the "west coast" style it claims to be but good nonetheless.

16oz can $2.99. Bright orange color, fizzy, ok head. Smell is malt, honey, very little hops. Flavor has some hops that show up with bitterness and a touch of citrus but nothing too crazy. Not a bad pale ale and kind of reminds me of Dale's but I really wish brewers would stop calling their pales and IPA's west coast. They are almost never comparable to what comes out of California. Just stop, its false advertising.
