COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the 1940’s, Belgian-Style Pale Ales grew in popularity and were ordered by the round due to their balanced taste. Rounder, our expression of this sessionable style, is crafted with hibiscus and orange peel for a hint of spiciness and touch of wheat for a smoother, rounder taste.

Malts: Pale, Imported Caramel, Imported Light Caramel, White Wheat
Hops: Cascade
Our Twist: Orange Peel, Hibiscus

Pours a clear amber with a quickly fleeting 1 finger white head. Aromas of sweet malt, grain, very subtle spice. Smooth mouthfeel, caramel malt followed by slight orange sweetness, spice. Rather weak linear flavor profile leaving a very light metallic like aftertaste. Not bad but not good either. Where’s the Belgian in this beer?

Tulip glass. Clear copper with almost no head/lacing. A nice nose of hops and malts. OK tasting beer. The malts stick out a bit on the tongue.

Decent smell kinda caramel and honey slightly, looks like a normal amber colored Belgian, taste is straight forward not too much goin on but very smooth and drinkable, I won’t turn it down but won’t buy it either

Poured a clear amber. A little sweet and astringent with a hint of spice. Not enjoyable. Not sure what this is, but it certainly isn’t a Belgian ale.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 Sometimes, you have different opinions about a beer in retrospect. I disliked Rounder when I first had it. In hindsight, though... it makes me even angrier. The fact that this beer calls itself a Belgian Style Pale Ale is almost beyond belief. This is the pussification of a great style for the sake of mass consumption. Too little hops. No distinct yeast flavor. No balls. In other words, Rounder sucks.

Tmoney99 (10551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate sweet balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a soft sweet drinkable beer.

Brandon1989 (239) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2014
pours a clear amber color with a small white head that dissipated really quick. the aroma is malts and caramel, rather sweet. the taste didn’t live up to the aroma. very weak and bland.

ZacM612 (121) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle poured into tumbler, amber color, little bit of head. Weak aroma. A little bitter as an ale should be, but thin and kind of watery. Just passable.

Bottle. Pours a clear caramel amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of straw and grain with a bit of spice that comes through. Flavor is more bland with notes of straw, grain and bread.

Pitiful beer, absolute joke. Watery throughout, very mild carbonation, near diacetyl
