COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle. This medium-bodied pale ale has a distinctive floral hop aroma and refreshing citrus flavor. You’ll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Bottle from jgd0608, thanks man! Poured a lightly hazy golden color with a thick, fluffy white head that slowly diminished to a thick layer and left some spotty lacing. Lightly floral, hoppy aroma with some light, crisp citrus fruit (orange and lemon). Crisp, dry entry leads into a soft maltiness coupled with an earthy, dry hoppiness with some light citric fruit (orange peel, light lemon) that finishes moderately dry with a soft yeastiness and some fruity undertones. Moderate carbonation, light and prickly on the palate. Overall a solid, drinkable pale. Thanks again Jon.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow orange.Nose is piney and citrusy. Kinda bitey on the palate....I guess for a pale its as it should be. may .Still, I cant say Ive had a bad beer from Founders. Hints of Citrus, orange, and pine. Small flavor of grass in there as well. not bad.

This is a very fine APA with perfect balance for the assertive cascade hops. Really, this beer reminded me of how so many beers, although tasty, lack balance and interplay of flavors. well done. And this is their lawnmower beer...

ross (2120) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours out an orange color with a nice white head on it. Smell is fruity with some hop smells - grass, citrus, sweet malts - thats about it. Not much else.. Decent smelling but not memorable. Taste is smooth and easy to drink. Fairly refreshing, but it lacks the hop bite of something like Sierra Nevada Pale. A good beer, but not the best - however, since this is around that means the Breakfast stout is too, and that is good enough for me!

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2008
This beer is golden. It has a medium sized white head. Not a lot of lacing. Sharp, piney nose. Straight-forward and watery with a pine-tree bite at the finish. Whatever I’ll drink anything.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours a light yellow body with a white head. Smells like light pils malt with a hoppy light aroma of citrus and pine. Easy drinking lawn mower brew.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Pours light golden from 12 oz bottle, forming medium sized off white foamy head. Aroma of malts, hops and citrus. Flavour grassy hops with a tinge of malty peppery lemons. Overall average pale ale, was expecting much more from brewery. Drinkable, and tasty, but not too exciting, sorry.

nearbeer (4008) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2008
12 oz. Hazy golden-orange with a lasting head and lots of crunchy lace left behind. Mild lemon and grain aroma. Flavor is lemon, eucalyptus, and grain with some toasted nut and bitter woody hop on the end. Long citrus, eucalyptus and wood finish is not so great. Light body is soft and dry.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2012 Light orange, nearly golden clear pour with white thin head and nice lacing. Grassy, grainy, and slightly floral. Good bit of apricots on the nose. Similar taste, and dry palate. Better than I remembered.
