Easy drinking beer for the masses. Says cream ale but comes across like a Lager, Seems to me more malt forward. Has a little bit of sweetness that coats your mouth. Fairly bland other than that

Over all, not bad. Light and smooth. You do get a nice IPA taste. No bitter after taste.

Wish it was available outside of Wisconsin. This beer is 100 times better on tap.

A very drinkable beer. I was surprised by the overall lightness. But despite the lightness, there was still plenty of flavor - a bit of hops and a bit of malt.
