Had on-tap at the brewery. Review from notes.

Won't go into too much detail on this one, as like some other reviews from notes my notes are sparse, which means I didn't have much to say in the first place. I found this to pale (no pun intended) in comparison to hoppy birthday but still an enjoyable PA. Very much centered on wheat and cereals with hops adding a slight spice both in nose and in taste. It was a very mellow flavor blended together by some maltiness, but the body was refreshing and it was slightly creamy which gave it some interesting drinkability. I could enjoy a glass of this but not sure why I would if I had other options around (especially at the brewery!).
