A classic for it's kind, and what I call the "gateway beer." It's a one of the few microbews available in most bars on-tap, usually sandwitched between two major macros. If you can get your BCM friends to try it, they will probably like it. And if they do like it, they may enter the gates of micro-heaven and never go back!
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottle into a tumbler. I really need to work on my glassware situation, but I feel like any glass is better than none. Last one from a 6 pack, enjoyed this beer quite a bit. It's a style I love, and pretty typical for it.
Pours a slightly hazy light amber/dark blonde with less than one finger of creamy off white head. Lacing isn't anything to write home about.
Sniffs Good. Subtle and hoppy, probably cascade. Mouthfeel is pretty light, and drinks smoothly. Would be a good beer in the summer, and is great right now late in the winter too. Tastes well balanced with plenty of hops. If you don't like hops this one is pretty approachable. (People should just drink what they like though.)
