First had: on tap at Deschutes, Portland, OR

Why is it that so many cream ales are disappointing? The name makes it sound like something good, yet so few brewers seem to be able to offer a good one. It's probably the style's fault for resembling an adjunct lager rather than being a light beer with the smoothness of a stout.

Poured a light orange-amber, clear, with a few stray bubbles on top. Light aroma, grains and corn, orange zest. Light on the palate, weak taste, corn, distilled grains, orange blossom and maybe a touch of honeysuckle. Light-bodied, too thin and sweet. May be good for a weak palate, but I just can't stomach it.
