A very pretty golden bronze orange amber, practically textbook, with a very crystal clear appearance. Carbonation is very easy to see, some fast, some slow, head is about only a finger and a half tall but made with very tiny bubbles and has a real nice creamy retention. It's a real impressive looking brew.

Real nice mix of fleshy orange citrus sensing hop smells. Light sweet malts seem to come in a bit, but there's a light toasty little grain as well. The citrus angle is quite dominant and very flavorful. Real solid smelling brew.

Hop forward with a very light malt body, and almost crisp feeling character. Good woody pine sense of hop with the citrus angle slowly dissapearing. Very light bodied but true to pale ale style, with a bit of stinging large hop presence. Bready toast flavors come out more often as the brew warms up which is a nice compliment.

Overall a real solid hop forward pale ale.

Straight out the can at Canfest. Light orange/auburn color, nice color. Pretty mild hop aroma coming out of it. Some sweet lightly buttered malt aroma.

Taste, pretty ho hum. Hopping not anything to write home about. Malt sweetness is fairly middle of the road. A little metallic with its bitterness. Some caramel and toffee, makes me think of that caramel corn stuff you get in cracker jacks. Still underwhelmed by the hops, whether it be the aroma, taste or mouthfeel, they just come off as a Midwestern Germanic stab at a pale ale instead of it being an American or West Coast hoppy pale, which the latter is generally preferred these days and with this taster.

It did not go easy on the bitterness, but it just obscured a lot I'm guessing. I think they sent some old cans to Canfest, like many of the breweries did.

On-tap poured into a pint glass.

An awesome one finger or so bright white headshot clings to the glass as you drink.

It's a little tame on the nose but it's got a nice hint of floral hops.

The initial taste is hop forward but immediately is balanced perfectly with a refreshing sweetness that gets exponentially more drinkable as the pint diminishes. Son of a bitch, what a damn good drinkable beer. Nice job, SK!

My first trip to Indy was a few years ago during the Big 10 basketball tournament and one of the most memorable parts of that trip was a visit to the brand new Sun King brewery (www.sunkingbrewing.com). What made this place stick out to me was that they were just starting out and happened to be having a tasting event that day. For $10 we got 10 tickets, which means 10 drinks, as well as the opportunity to sit and visit or look around the brewery. As people were leaving they would give us their tickets which meant more beers for us. Needless to say, we got a little bit of buzz going but I remember the beers being very good.

Sun King doesn’t distribute outside of Indiana, yet, but my brother-in-law would bootleg Sun King products back to Iowa when they would return home to visit. Osiris isn’t a pale ale that is lighter in flavor, this pale ale bites back a bit with a nice resinous hop presence followed by some sweetness to balance it out.
