Deviated from craft a little bit with this one and was so glad that I did. Was blown away by how well this stood up to other beers in the industry today. This retro brand still has it! And believe it or not this won a GABF medal in the past.

Bought this simply because my mom has always talked about having Little Kings when she was younger but it was turned out to be much more drinkable than I expected. It's a bit light on the taste and is expectedly light in color and feel but the taste isn't bad at all and is actually quite smooth. When compared to most of the other non-craft offerings I've had, I'll take a Little Kings everyday.

you know, occasionally, and very occasionally, i like to deviate from the craft beer i love so much for a little refresher course about why i spend so much time and money and energy on this passion of mine, and its beer like this that serves that purpose so well. classic cheap cream ale in a cute little package. its got a mild skunk to the nose, but other than that is an extremely passable macro tasting brew, malty enough in a light pils sort of way, and not lacking in flavor at all. it has a little body, wonderfully refreshing carbonation, and a pretty snappy finish, a fine refresher overall. its honestly not very good, but its also not all that bad, especially when judged against its peers. what it doesnt have though is any real hop profile, anything unique or interesting, an appreciable yeast character, or any capacity to hold my attention or inspire me in any way whatsoever. craft beer has and does at least most of those things most of the time, and thats why i love it so much, it makes me think and it makes me move, and im not sure what i would be mentally or physically if this is the kind of beer i drank all the time. i dont hate it, i am actually thankful for it today for reminding me again why i am so into craft beer. this though, is well enough crafted that i just might buy it again someday!

The nose is light Pilsner style malt with some grassy tones and a fruity bubblegum-like aroma.

The flavor is a bit on the cracker Pilsner malt with so grassy grainy tones. There's a bit of sweetness a corn pop cereal finish.

This certainly is easy to drink and makes for a pretty good beer to start with.
