We present Hinode observations of a small B-class flare which occurred on May 22, 2007, supplemented with X-ray, EUV, and radio data. We found new signatures of chromospheric evaporation, strong (up to 170 km s-1) blue-shifted emission in lines formed around 2-3 MK, in a very narrow layer at the footpoints of a 10 MK flare loop. We have found good agreement between the observed properties and those predicted by a HYDRAD non-equilibrium hydrodynamic numerical simulation.
