Pint at Rattle n Hum. 4th Founders beer of the night. Crisp and ripe pale ale. Nice and subtle hop aroma with a firm bite. Citrus and floral.. some soft cereals to balance it out. Finished this very quickly.

Serving: Draft at Fireworks.
It pours a slightly hazy, light amber color with a thin, white ring around the edge of the glass for a head. The nose is full of pale malt notes, a touch of florals, and some malt sweetness. Light and mild. The taste brings a bit of honey, grass, florals, and the pale malt notes too. The mouthfeel is medium-light with medium-light carbonation and a medium-short finish. Overall it’s a great session beer with mellow, easy flavors. A great everyday brew.

The aroma, flavor and body all seems to be lacking on this beer. maybe this was just a bad batch. the aroma is floral hops. the appearance is a pale reddish gold color, white head. The flavor was hoppy, flowes and citrus, some caramel. the finish was piney hops. Thin to medium in body. Not great.

12 oz. bottle. Pours like a classic pale ale, amber gold body with white head, quickly reduces to some bubbles floating on the top of the beer. Smell is floral hops, pine, buttery sweet corn malt. Taste is pretty balanced, with a crisp hoppy bite giving way to malts underneath, with some hop bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied, not thick, goes down easy. Would be a good session; a good example of this style.

Pretty tastey brew all around. pours a vibrant copper colour with a small white floral head. Hop goodness around the palate, fruity and sweet/bitter battle all the way through. Finishes very clean

bottle on 3/7/09... straw yellow pour with a white head... malt forward nose with some grassy hop notes... light to medium body with slight hops... more bitter than some pale ales but the hops feel pretty low in alphas... just feels off to me... lacks some body and depth... a very light pale ale. ok.

I’m not going to lie...I was a bit disappointed with this weak Pale Ale from a brewery known for kicking me in the ass with their high gravity / abundantly hopped beers. Pours golden with a thin head, aroma is faint of hops and you can’t really taste the hops. I know this is a Pale Ale as opposed to an IPA so the hop content will go down, but I just thought it was weaker than it could’ve been. I’ll stick to what I like from this great brewery.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is of light sweet malt, some citrus hops. Taste is sweet but the hops are all pretty light. The hops are citrusy and not all that present. Some other unexpected grain notes are also noticable. Not sure of the age of the bottle but, this one may have been on the shelf too long. Body is medium and the finish is light. Overall an okay brew.
