Solid 1" of creamy head on top of a mild orange color. Aroma was neutral.

Minor hops and bitterness, tastes like it wants to be Spotted Cow. Bready, biscuity malt flavors. Not a whole lot going on, like most cream ales.

I have lived in Milwaukee drinking hoppy beers for nearly a decade and somehow overlooked this gem. Lakefront should kill off their lame session IPA (Extended Play) and promote this one more heavily. Easy enough for casual beer fans, but hoppy enough for serious IPA drinkers. Always a good choice.
