One of the best Founders has to offer. Its exactly what they say it is, a strong, golden ale. There isnt a whole lot to it, its really well balanced. Nothing stands out much, but it goes down very nicely, especially with food.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 Rating #1900... Draft... Clear, yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Very good retention with minimal lace. A political map of the United States and Mexico appears in the lacing. This was probably planned-out by the brewmaster as D.C. is a very politically oriented town. NOT! Still, a really cool occurrence. Spicy, breadsy aroma with some lemon thrown in. The flavor is lightly spicy and decently balanced with notes of grain, straw and overripe banana. The alcohol is just a touch hot, but not overbearing. Delicious overall. Full-bodied and astringent with pillow-soft carbonation. Lengthy, spicy, medium-bitter, bone dry finish. Lovely creation!

Draft @ RFD: I love Bill Madden and most of his brews but this was entirely underwelming. Aroma was a vague malty sweetness with some spice. Flavor was a watery belgian yeast, spice, and slight maltiness. Not much really worked in this beer.

A quality Belgian White. A bit dry with a nice overlay of citrus and spice.
