Sampled 7/17/2011 at the Vancouver WA location (on the Columbia).

Pours light yellow, slight hazy, nice white head, decent lacing, not much retention.

Aroma is lightly grassy but mostly sweet malt, kind of watery.

Flavor is kind of reminiscent of a German lager by the time it gets to the US. The hops are virtually non existent and you're left with a crisp lightly malty light bodied beer that replaces a macro lager for the sake of being "craft brewed". Thats not to say that this doesnt have a time and a place but personally I'd like a bit of flavor with my alcohol.

Body is light, drinkable, and somewhat enjoyable depending on the outside temperature (of course right on the river even in July it isn't all that hot).
