Draft sample at Founders. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2012
12 oz pour on tap at the brewpub (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a dulled amber hue, some orange glow with decent haze overall. A smallish whitish head sits atop, dies to a small loose film, laces small. Aromas are mellow sweetness, touches of orange and fruit, pale malts and toast, gentle biscuit. Cleaner and mellow aroma, pushing a touch more orange as I get into it. Initial is mellow and clean, touches of dry hops up front, mellow oranges, and bready malts. Touches of toast, pale malts, and gentle earthy malts. A nice "English Bitter" vibe here, growing bitterness up front as it warms. Gentle sweetness, earthy and bready, dough and toast, oranges, dry grass, earthy hops. Finish is mellow and orange, bread, pale malts. Earth, gentle spice, growing dryness. Quite pleasant, refreshing, and easy going. The ABV seems a touch high, but itís not bad.

On tap at Founders last week. Reviewed from notes. Pours a medium amber color with a good off-white head and nice lacing on the way down. The nose carries a bit of biscuit and bready malt with some earthy hops. Slight floral presence as well. Flavor has good malt backing and a faint hop presence. Light body with good carbonation. Solid brew.

Tap at Founders. Light cereal grain nose with a touch of herbal hops. Taste is fairly dry, lightly hoppy, with a bit of honey and whole grain bread, light floral and herbal notes. Very easy drinking.

Draft at Founders. Translucent medium orange-brown body, medium clumping beige head. Grainy, grassy, hoppy nose, earthy and mineral. Grainy body with an emphasis on grassy to leafy bitter hops, finishing with nutty grain and lingering bitter hops. Crisp and quaffable.
