Had for $2.50 during tuesday night happy hour at the brewpub.

Expected something light and flavorless, but what I got was a clean, refreshing summer beer with way more hops than expected. Hops had an earthy flavor with a bit of pine. Willamette??

Bitterness was on the level of a czech pilsener, firm but balanced and extremely drinkable. My only complaint is that the hops used were a tad rough and piney for a cream ale - fine for me, but the typical 'cream ale drinker' might object.

Overall, tasted like a slightly lighter, more refreshing APA, something you'd give your dad to get him hooked on craft.
