From an old can that was kept in the fridge. Aroma is heavy caramel, which I think is a result of the age. Flavor reflects that too. Not a bad, beer; just not much of a cream ale at this point.

A bit darker than a macro. Not much head and no lacing.

Mostly some earthy hops and malts. Standard fare.

Not awful. Pilsner malts and earthy hops, just like the nose. Ginger maybe?

Light bodied with a mostly bitter feel. Aggressive carbonation bite.

Decent beer. Not bad for a wedding reception. Beats the Bud Light alternative.

The Sunlight Cream Ale was good....nice for a warmer day. It poured a clear yellow with white head that dissipated quickly and left no lace. The scent has biscuit. The taste was a smooth evenly balanced beer that was quite drinkable. Certainly had bread like base. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was decent.

Beer is terrible, reminds you of any other domestic light beer. I actually prefer coors light over this any day
